Hibs are getting braced for interest in their teenage talent Josh Doig with a host of Premier League heavyweights circling the left-back, including the likes of Arsenal and Leeds United.

The 18-year-old is being tracked by numerous clubs following a breakthrough into Hibs’ first team this season. It was reported that League One Sunderland were monitoring him but the level has gone up a notch, Arsenal and Leeds United now taking an interest.

It’s also said that Celtic, Chelsea and Manchester City are all keen on Doig’s services. While Chelsea were interested under Frank Lampard, that could change now the London club are under new management.

Doig has made 19 appearances for Hibs this season, mentored by legendary Hibee Lewis Stevenson as he makes his way in the professional game. Scouts have identified Doig’s biggest strength as his attacking output.

Celtic and Leeds United are thought to be able to offer him the quickest route to first-team football but Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City could all put him through their elite academy systems.

Doig’s clearly not letting interest get the better of him, earning a Man of the Match award on a big occasion but it wasn’t to be against Rangers. An Alfredo Morelos goal in the second half handed Steven Gerrard’ side a 1-0 win at Easter Road.
