Arsenal and Man Utd closely interested in Tom Cadoche with teenage defender to make transfer decision within months

The youngster has attracted interest from some of Europe’s biggest clubs

ARSENAL and Manchester United are “closely interested” in highly-rated youngster Tom Cadoche, according to reports.

The 15-year-old, who plays for La Havre AC, is set to make a decision on his future at the end of the year.

France Bleu claim the defender has caught the eye of Premier League giants United, Arsenal and Manchester City.

Real Madrid have also been linked following his sublime spell of form in France.

It is understood that the La Liga giants have already sent scouts to watch Cadoche in action.

The source states that the Frenchman will end the speculation by announcing his next move at the end of the year.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to bring new talent to Old Trafford following his side’s shocking start to the season.

If the under-fire Norwegian avoids the sack, United are set to back him with eight new signings.

The Red Devils have been linked to Rostov midfielder Mathias Normann as a replacement for Ander Herrera.

And SunSport exclusively revealed that Russian striker Aleksandr Sobolev is one of Solskjaer’s top targets.

Arsenal manager Unai Emery is also expected to bolster his squad in January amid links to Feyenoord midfielder Orkun Kokcu.
