Arsenal and Real Madrid have joined Valencia in the race to sign highly-rated Alcoyano youngster Lucas Torres reports

The 17-year-old forward is earning rave reviews after a series of scintillating performances in the Spanish second division.

Torres has been identified by La Liga side Valencia as a potential star of the future - and the club, which has a partnership agreement with Alcoyano will have first refusal on bringing him to the Mestalla.

However, that has done little to prevent rival interest in the talented youngster, with Los Blancos boss Jose Mourinho thought to be monitoring the situation closely.

Meanwhile, Arsenal are also keen on Torres, and Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is looking to utilise his sound relationship with Alcoyano, having loaned them Brazilian starlet Wellington Silva, as a potential bargaining tool to lure him to the Emirates Stadium.

Club president Juan Serrano Morillas confirmed that interest in the player is high, but stressed that Alcoyano are yet to receive an official bid for Torres.

"The interest in the player has not gone beyond asking about his situation," he said. "Even if that interest is increasing.

"Valencia have priority with the player, as this is the club that has an agreement with Alcoyano."
