Arsenal are in advanced talks to sign Peruvian starlet Andy Polo, according to skysports.com.
The 16-year-old has already broken into the first team at his club Universitario, leading to a host of clubs tracking his progress.
And it appears that Arenal are leading the race for the youngster, who has been touted as the new Alexis Sanchez.
Universitario confirmed: "We are open to negotiate but on concrete conditions.
"Andy is a pearl and we will not miss out."
Udinese and Valencia are two sides reportedly desperate to snap up Polo, but Arsenal lead the way.
Polo may have his head turned by Arsenal, especially given the club\’s track record at bringing through young players.
