Man United emerge favourites to seal deal for in-demand Arsenal attacker target

Jadon Sancho is discontented with his situation at Manchester City and he is eager to quit the club, putting Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham on alert.

It is understood that the 17-year-old highly-rated attacker has concerns over his future at the Etihad Stadium, giving the number of attackers ahead of him, as he is apparently eyeing breaking into their first team having trained with them before.

According to Manchester Evening News, the teenager, regarded as one of the exciting talents in England, was left out of City squad for their pre-season tour to US following his refusal to sign a new contract and was said to have been dismayed at being left out of the tour while fellow academy players Phil Foden and Brahim Diaz were included.

He had reportedly rejected the three-year contract offered him by Man City as he wants a club where he would get a quicker path to first-team football.

And his talents have not gone unnoticed, prompting Premier League clubs to be vying for his signature while Bundesliga side Red Bull Leipzig is also reportedly interested in him.

Arsenal are said to be leading the race for his signature while United are also trying to convince him to move across towns to Old Trafford.

Yet to sign a professional contract with City, Sancho has refused to rule out moving abroad, which will prevent his new club from paying compensation to Man City.

He was named the best player at the European U17 Championship in Croatia, where he scored seven goals and assisted another five.
