19 year-old starlet attracting interest from Emirates Stadium.
Sky Sports understands a number of clubs are chasing highly-rated Plymouth youngster Luke Young.
The 19-year-old, who plays as a central attacking midfielder but can also feature out wide, has turned heads with his performances for the Pilgrims.
Young, who made his 60th league appearance in the 2-1 defeat at Bristol Rovers on New Year’s Day, is understood to have attracted interest from the Premier League, with Arsenal thought to be monitoring him.
West Brom scouts have also reportedly watched him in action three times, while a number of Championship clubs are believed to be keen.
The teenager, who also has an eye for a goal and has scored two this season, came through the youth ranks at Plymouth, making his senior debut in January 2011.
After generations producing bustling midfielders who charge around the pitch tackling and shooting, England are finally starting to find some more technical talent.
Luke Young is amongst those, and the Plymouth Argyle star has played first team football most of this season – meaning he has a fair share more games under his belt already than many other players his age.
The trouble for Young is, they are in nPower League Two, and making the step up to Premier League level is never easy.
Arsene Wenger and Steve Clarke must presumably be impressed by him enough to contemplate bringing him from fourth tier to the top flight though, and at 19 he still has plenty of time to learn his trade.
It is worth remembering that Jack Wilshere is just 20 years of age, whilst Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is 19.
They are certainly substantially further ahead in their careers than Young, though Nick Powell has done very well at Manchester United since joining from Crewe Alexandra in the summer.
Perhaps Luke Young will adapt similarly well to the Premier League.
