Arsenal join Man City in race for Serbian wonderkid

Arsenal and Manchester City are set to go head-to-head in their chase for Partizan Belgrade star Dusan Vlahovic, according to reports from France Football.

The 16-year-old has also caught the attentions of Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain, with the player already drawing comparison to their star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Despite being only 16, the forward stands at 6ft 2″, as a host of European elites look to make a move for his services in the near future.

PSG have been monitoring the player for quite some time and is believed to have already made an enquiry over the possibility of signing him.

He is currently the youngest player to ever sign a pro-contract at Partizan and also the youngest to feature in the Serbian capital derby against Red Star Belgrade.

The Gunners are known for their ability to spot young talent as they are keen to add the Serbian wonderkid into their ranks.

Vlahovic has so far featured six times in all competitions for his side this term and is currently tied down on a contract until 2018.
