Manchester United boss David Moyes risks angering his Arsenal counterpart Arsene Wenger with a move for one of his academy jewels, 16-year-old Chris Willock.

The pacy attacker is capable of playing out wide, up front or in an advanced midfield role. And, according to the Daily Mail, Manchester United are continuing to ramp up their interest in the teenager ahead of a big summer for Willock.

He's yet to sign scholarship forms with Arsenal, which opens the door for United at the end of the season. Moyes could snap him up with Arsenal due just £300,000 in compensation for bringing him up through their academy ranks.

The Daily Mail report notes Willock's brother, Matty Willock, is already at United and the defending Premier League champions hope this could help tempt Chris to Manchester too.

Arsenal are no stranger themselves to poaching the best up and coming young players from across Europe.

They nabbed Cesc Fabregas and Fran Merida from Barcelona when both were teenagers, while they also paid big money for Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade Chamberlain from Southampton.
