Manchester United and Arsenal are set to battle with each other to sign Rangers youngster Jack Wylie, according to one report.
Arsenal's interest in the midfielder is said to have dated back at least six months and they even sent the chief youth scout Lee Herron to Spain to watch Wylie in action for Scotland's under-16 side against Denmark.
Rangers fear they'll lose him for 'peanuts'
Rangers recently accepted a £350,000 bid from Aston Villa earlier in the year for Rory Wilson from their academy.
The Scottish Premiership are said to be keen to avoid a repeat of that transfer, however, they understand the appeal of playing in the Premier League - particularly when two of the biggest clubs in English football are interested.
United boss Ten Hag has previously said the club wants to continue to work on the squad: "In the background, we always continue a process, working on the squad," he stated.
"We want to have top sport culture and you see and examine how you can improve and that's what we will do."
