London rivals Arsenal, Tottenham and West Ham United are all scouting AFC Wimbledon defender Ryan Sweeney ahead of a potential summer move, report the Daily Star.
The 19-year old has been hugely impressive for the club amid their route to a first ever playoff entry in the Dons’ history.
Further interest from the Premier League is believed to come from the recently promoted Burnley, as interest mounts in the talented teen.

Despite only penning a long term deal in South London recently, Sweeney has excelled in the heart of defence and earned a call up to the Republic of Ireland under-18 squad.
Lower league scouting is currently the modern trend in football, with Spurs particularly championing that after seeing the likes of Dele Alli emerge from MK Dons.
While most of the unearthed talent has tended to be attacking players, Everton had great success when plucking John Stones from relative obscurity at Barnsley.
Sweeney will be gearing up for a strong end to the season against Newport County before embarking on the playoffs.
Seen enough of Sweeney to convince you he can cut it in the Premier League?
