His struggles have therefore alerted the likes of the Gunners and the Red Devils, with both clubs keen on the 19-year-old midfielder.

However, according to Foot Mercato, it is United that are favourites to complete a move for the Belgium U21 star, with the club willing to spend £10.6million to secure his services.

Apart from Arsenal, European giants Monaco are also reportedly interested in Musonda, with the French principality side previously hoping to sign the youngster as part of the deal which saw Radamel Falcao move to Chelsea during the summer.

Last term, Musonda played 20 games in the U21 Premier League, scoring four goals.
