Arsenal are ramping up their efforts to bring Hull youngster Josh Tymon to The Emirates ahead of Premier League rivals Liverpool and Everton, according to ESPN FC.
The left-back, who made his full Premier League debut for the Tigers in their 3-0 defeat to David Moyes’ Sunderland, is still a scholar with Mike Phelan’s side and is yet to pen a professional contract.
The 17-year-old has reportedly been on Wenger’s radar since the two sides met in the FA Cup last season, but he is also turning heads at other top flight sides.
Merseyside rivals Liverpool and Everton are both rumoured to be keeping tabs on the situation surrounding the England U17 international.
The Hull born youngster made his first appearance for his hometown club in a 3-0 FA Cup win over Bury, before going on to make his second at The Emirates against the Gunners where then manager Steve Bruce and his side played out a 0-0 draw and took the tie to a replay, however, Tymon was not involved in the home fixture.
