Highly rated Anderlecht midfielder Charly Musonda is a summer transfer target for Arsenal according to the Daily Mail.

The 14-year-old Belgian boy wonder is regarded as one of the country's brightest young prospects.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is keen to secure Musonda's signature at the earliest possible opportunity, after the teen sensation flew to London over the weekend.

He was in attendance at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday to see Arsenal defeat Manchester United 1-0 in the Barclays Premier League, and was said to be very impressed by his potential future employers.

Interest is thought to be high in a player, the youngest of three children of former Zambia international and Anderlecht icon Charly Musonda – amd shares a name with his father who now works as a youth team coach at the Belgian giants.


Musonda's siblings Lamisha (16) and Tika (18), recently signed two-year professional deals with Anderlecht, but it is Charly who is claimed to be the most skilful of the trio.

The attacking midfielder will be enrolled into the Arsenal academy where he will have the time to develop and mature under the stewardship of Wenger's extensive coaching set-up.

Arsenal are reportedly looking to strike a deal that could see Anderlecht act as a parent club to the Gunners, giving the north Londoners first choice on future up and coming stars.

Musonda is said to have chosen Arsenal over a handful of other leading sides in Europe, and could complete a move to the Emirates at the end of the season.
