Three English Premier League teams Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham have entered the race to sign Roma's Nigerian teen striker Umar Sadiq, according to reports in Italy.
La Gazzetta dello Sport also claim French club Lyon are also ready to compete for the signature of the Nigerian youngster who has attracted interest following an impressive season in the Italian capital.
The 19-year-old has scored two goals in six Serie A appearances for Roma while he has found the net 19 times in 18 games for their youth team.
Sadiq's agent Mohammes Lawal confirmed the Gunners had opened talks over a possible deal.
“Yes, there is interest from Arsenal but at this moment nothing is done,” Lawal said.
Sadiq is currently on loan at Roma from Serie B side Spezia but the report claims Roma plan to make his move permanent before immediately selling him on at a profit.
