Manchester United are reportedly keeping close tabs on England Under-19 starlet Chris Willock, according to The Sun.

The Premier League side, who have climbed up to sixth spot in the English top-flight table following last weekend’s 3-1 victory over Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium, are understood to be interested in Willock’s ability, considering they currently nurture his older brother, Matthew, in their youth ranks.

The 18-year-old, who has featured four times for the England Under-19s, has made two first-team appearances for Arsene Wenger’s side.

Willock; who also has a younger brother, Joe, who is prolific in the Gunners’ Under-18 squad, is highly-rated by the club’s French manager, having handed him substitute appearances against Nottingham Forest and Reading in the EFL Cup this season.

Wenger said of the youngster, “He can have a go at people, can get past people in one on ones.

“I believe that he has the needed character when he has his back to the wall to always respond in a very strong way.

“That’s a very important quality, to be able to play under pressure.”
