Arsenal are keeping tabs on Malmo youngster Filston Mawana, according to reports.

Arsenal are famed for signing young players, helping them develop into top professional footballers and Mawana is the latest on our radar.

According to Tribal Football, Arsenal are watching the youngster a view to making a move for him in the future.

However, the report claims we are not alone in the race to sign the youngster as Italian giants, Juventus are also monitoring the young striker

The 16 year old is set to leave Malmo in January and the Italian club will rival us in the race to sign the player.

Portuguese outfit Sporting CP have been linked with the forward in the past and even invited him for a trial but it is unknown if they will renew their interest in the winter transfer window.

The player’s agent André Filipe Jenaro has confirmed interests in his client.

“It is true that Sporting invited Filston and that the clubs you mention follow his development,” agent André Filipe Jenaro told fotbolltransfers.com, as quoted by Tribal Football.

“He has developed a lot in recent years and progressed with Malmo FF and the national team.”

We have been linked with a host of youngsters in the last couple of months and it won’t be possible for us to sign all of them. We’d have to wait and see if Mawana will be among the lucky ones to make the switch to Arsenal.
