Arsenal eyeing Madkjeski Stadium starlet.
ARSENAL are keeping tabs on highly-rated Reading youngster Sean Morrison.
Imposing centre-half Morrison, 21, only made his Premier League debut this month.
But he has already made a big impression in his six league and cup appearances this season – including a Capital One cup tie against the Gunners – and caught the eye of Arsene Wenger’s scouts.

Towering Reading centre-half Sean Morrison caught the eye this weekend with a terrific headed goal against Wigan in the Premier League so it’s perhaps no surprise that the unimaginative tabloid press have linked the 21-year-old with a move to Arsenal today.
There’s no doubting that the imposing defender, who stands at 6’4”, has the potential to be decent Premier League player and he didn’t look out of place against Wigan side who play some fine passing football.
But there’s no indication yet that Morrison has the quality to interest the likes of Arsenal.
The Gunners are decently stocked in the centre-half department, with Per Mertesacker, Laurent Koscielny and Thomas Vermaelen currently competing for places.
But doubts remain about the concentration of the German, while Vermaelen is not currently at his best.
Competition from a talented youngster could well do the trio the world of good but it remains to be seen if Morrison is that man.
