Valmir Berisha has agreed to join AS Roma, rejecting the chance to join a host of Premier League clubs, reports the Daily Express.
After coming to prominence in the under-17 World Cup in the summer - finishing as the competition's top scorer - a number of Premier League clubs made contact about his availability.
The player's agent took the chance to confirm that Liverpool, Tottenham and Sunderland had all been in contact with regards to signing his client while Manchester United and Arsenal went as far as to offer the player a trial.
However, obviously well aware of his ability, Berisha turned down the chance to link up with David Moyes and Arsene Wenger and has now signed a deal that will see him join up with Serie A outfit Roma.
It's the second time the Rome club has beaten Arsenal to a top striker prospect this season. The Gunners were reportedly interested in sealing a deal for Barcelona starlet Toni Sanabria, only to see the Peruvian move to Italy instead.
It could also turn out to be a massive blow for Manchester United, Liverpool and Tottenham, especially if Berisha lives up to his nickname - 'The next Zlatan Ibrahimovic'.
Manchester United in particular have a great reputation of blooding youngsters from their academy with the most recent prospects to emerge including Adnan Januzaj and Paul Pogba.
