Arsenal are one of several teams interested in the signature of Scotland U19s international Kyle Joseph, who’s enjoying a breakthrough season at Wigan Athletic.

The Latics have given Joseph his chance in League One this term and he’s repaid their faith with five goals in 14 league appearances. Arsenal have been keeping tabs on his progress for some time.

Celtic and Rangers are also said to be interested in the teenager while a host of top clubs in Europe, plus in the Premier League and Championship, are also casting a keen eye. Currently 19, he has represented Scotland twice at U19s level.

His form on the domestic scene could lead to a call-up to the Scotland U21s, with Scott Gemmill’s side starting a new cycle next month as experienced campaigners from previous qualification runs are now too old to participate.

Joseph could be available as a bargain buy in the summer for clubs like Arsenal as his Wigan contract comes to an end.
