Just about every club in England is currently being linked with Hamilton Academical midfielder Ronan Hughes.

The 17-year-old has only played 94 minutes for Hamilton Accies this season but, considering his age, that’s not a huge surprise.

Manchester United, Arsenal, Spurs, Everton and West Ham are all being reported as interested by the English media, with the Red Devils apparently sitting firmly in the driver’s seat.

Are Arsenal interested?

It’s very possible. When Arsenal are reported to be looking at young players, it always is as we’re always trying to build our academy and if all these clubs are watching him, he must a real prospect.

Hughes has been with the Accies’ academy since the age of 10 and obviously we don’t know if he wants a change yet.

Alternatively, all these clubs could be being linked because he wants to leave and his agent is potentially putting word out that he’s looking for pastures new. His contract is up at the end of this season.

Either way, we’ll have to wait until the January transfer window is open.
