Arsene Wenger is considering a move to sign the latest star-to-be from Southampton's fabled academy.
The teenager has starred for the Saints' academy sides this season, and has had Arsenal scouts monitoring his progress closely.
Wenger has raided the Southampton academy for top English youngsters several times before, only last summer bringing Calum Chambers to the Emirates Stadium for £16m.
The likes of Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain also made the move from Southampton to north London shortly after breaking through with the Saints.
Slattery is not the only Southampton academy star attracting admiring glances from the Premier League elite. Talented 19-year-old Ryan Seager has 16 goals for the club's under-21 team this season, and has had scouts from 'all the top Premier League clubs' watching him this year.
But the teenage striker has today signed a contract extension with Southampton, all but ending the chance of him following in the footsteps of Chambers or Walcott to a Champions League team.
Seager harbours ambitions of breaking into the first-team at St Mary's on a regular basis, after getting his first taste of action in Ronald Koeman's squad earlier this year.
As for Slattery, the youngster is a regular for England's under-16 team having featured in last year's Victory Shield. The 16-year-old has also turned out for Southampton's under-21 side.
What do you think Arsenal fans - should Wenger continue to snap up the top gems from Southampton or are Arsenal better off concentrating on developing their own talent pool at the Emirates.
