Arsenal will rival Tottenham and Liverpool in a deal to sign Crystal Palace’s young striker Zion Atta.

According to TEAMtalk, the young starlet is already attracting plenty of interest from some of the league’s top teams.

Despite being just 14 years of age, Atta is making a name for himself at youth level.

Palace are confident that they can keep their young star – so do Arsenal need to pursue a deal further?

You have to credit Palace for the fact they’re confident that they can keep Atta at the club. It shows how mid-table Premier League sides are no longer being forced to sell their young stars.

If the Gunners are to secure his services, they’ll have their work cut out.

While Atta is still some way off breaking into any first-team squad, he could take hope from the chances that Arsenal are giving to their younger stars this season.

Of course, first-team football is always going to be more likely at a club like Palace, but there could still be an opening for him at the Emirates in the years to come.

Arsenal will face a battle to land Atta, but if they can beat the likes of Liverpool, Chelsea and Tottenham to his services, they would be landing themselves a fine young prospect for the future.

Would Atta be a good signing for Arsenal?

Yes

No
