Manchester City, Liverpool and Arsenal are believed to be among a number of clubs keeping a close eye on Asker's highly-rated teenager Vajebah Sakor, reports Sky Sports.

The 16-year-old midfielder is regarded as one of the brightest prospects to have emerged from Norwegian football in recent years, and currently plies his trade in the country's second division.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has been credited with an interest in Sakor's signature, with it not taking the north London club's scouts long to identify his obvious potential.

However, Arsenal will face stiff competition in their bid to bring the youngster to the Emirates Stadium, with Brendan Rodgers and Roberto Mancini both also monitoring Sakor's progress.

Asker sporting director, Espen Falck appreciates that the minnows have a unique talent on their hands, and concedes that with reported interest from Premier League giants like Arsenal, Liverpool and reigning champions Manchester City, a deal is likely to be struck soon.

"We know that there is a lot of interest in Vajebah but we are yet to receive a concrete offer from abroad," he told TV2. "We know he is wanted by a lot of clubs in Europe.

"Any interested clubs will have to move fast as he is set to leave us soon."

Sakor made his debut for Asker at the age of 15, and became the youngest player ever to feature in Norway's second tier.

His future in the game is undoubtedly bright, regardless of where he ends up playing. Whether it's Anfield or the Etihad, or a move to the English capital, big things will be expected of Scandinavia's latest exciting export.
