MANCHESTER UNITED wonderkid Mason Greenwood has reportedly emerged has a shock transfer target for Arsenal.
The 20-year-old has found himself on the bench in recent weeks under interim boss Ralf Rangnick.
And according to Elnacional, Arsenal Juventus and cash-strapped Barcelona are keeping an eye on his situation.
The Gunners may need to add three strikers to their ranks next summer with both Eddie Nketiah and Alexandre Lacazette out of contract.
And former club captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is out of squad contention after another 'disciplinary' breach.
The 32-year-old returned from France late, leading to Arteta making the difficult decision to strip him of the captaincy.
Greenwood could be the ideal long-term replacement for any of the possible departing three – becoming the focal point of Mikel Arteta's young squad.
The report states the trio will not 'hesitate' to make an offer for Greenwood should he decide to leave Old Trafford.
