Premier League giants Arsenal have joined the race to land Leeds United teenager Jack Clarke, according to reports from Football Insider.
The 18-year old has been exceptional for Leeds under Marcelo Bielsa this term, and has emerged as one of the brightest youth prospects to come out of Elland Road in the last decade.
The winger recently capped off his first Leeds start with a magnificent assist for Kemar Roofe, taking his tally up two goals and two assists for the Whites this season.
A host of high-profile clubs have been linked with a move to land the highly-rated youngster, with Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Southampton and Tottenham Hotspur looking to sign the attacker, with the latter also looking to make an offer to sign the player.
But reports have now emerged that Spurs’ North London rivals Arsenal are also preparing to make an offer to land Clarke. The wide-man has two-and-a-half years left on his current deal at Elland Road, but clubs have been put on red alert with Leeds still yet to tie him down to a long-term deal.
The Whites currently sit at the top of the Sky Bet Championship table, four points clear of the play-off places with Norwich City sitting in 3rd position.
Yet another massive club joins the race for Clarke, and it’s hardly surprising.
He has been tremendous for Leeds this season under Marcelo Bielsa, and has been a breath of fresh air at Elland Road.
With Leeds still not offering him a long-term deal, Arsenal, as well as the other teams in the Premier League, have got to fancy their chances.
