Dylan Crowe to Arsenal: The Gunners are leading the race to sign England’s U17 footballer Dylan Crowe.
Arsenal are enjoying life under Unai Emery this season. The club is on a 9-match winning run in all competitions so far, including six games in the Premier League.
Unai Emery’s side is also through to the next round of the Carabao Cup, and has won both of its games in the Europa League. The Gunners endured a tough start to the season, losing both of their opening games against Manchester City and Chelsea.
However, the club is now only two points behind both the clubs. Arsenal are fifth in the table with 18 points, and are yet to play their ninth game of the season against Leicester.
Meanwhile, the club is also keeping tabs on the transfer market. English outlet TeamTALK reports that Arsenal are leading the race to sign Dylan Crowe, England’s U-17 international.
Dylan Crowe to Arsenal:
TeamTALK reports that Arsenal are favourites to sign Dylan Crowe from Championship side Ipswich Town.
Dylan Crowe led England to European glory in the summer, and impressed the fans with his performances. However, he faces a tough time with the club as Ipswich Town is currently at the bottom of the table in the Championships.

Crowe has gained significant interest from European powerhouses, Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund being the major ones in the list. According to the English outlet, RB Leipzig is also keen on bringing the player to the club.
However, Arsenal are leading the race to sign the player.
Brighton and Southampton are also interested in signing the player and have reportedly prepared bids to sign the player.

Ipswich Town wants to tie him down to the club next year, when Crowe turns 18, with a professional contract. But with such big clubs in the list to sign the star, it looks unlikely that Crowe will be at Ipswich by the end of next summer.
Dylan Crowe can play in the midfield, or even in the defence as a right-back.
