Arsenal are among several clubs reportedly interested in New England Revolution‘s emerging midfielder, Noel Buck.

The 18-year-old, who recently had an unsuccessful trial with Tottenham Hotspur, has also piqued the interest of Manchester City and other European clubs.

Arsenal are reportedly keen to sign New England Revolution midfielder Noel Buck, following an unsuccessful trial with Tottenham Hotspur.

The interest from Arsenal makes it a potential head-to-head contest with Manchester City, as both clubs look to secure the services of the promising Major League Soccer (MLS) talent.

Noel Buck has recently caught the attention of several top European clubs, including Arsenal and Manchester City, following a breakthrough season with his boyhood team, New England Revolution.

The young midfielder has made 24 appearances and scored three goals in the recent campaign.

According to Tom Bogert from the Athletic, Buck could be available for a transfer fee of around £6.6 million.

Apart from Arsenal and Manchester City, other Premier League outfits like Burnley and Bundesliga teams are said to be monitoring the midfielder’s progress.

Tottenham Hotspur previously expressed interest in Buck, who hails from Massachusetts. Plans for the youngster to spend time training at Tottenham’s Enfield base, however, did not materialise.

In recent years, Arsenal have shown an appetite for recruiting from the MLS.

Former Revs goalkeeper Matt Turner and defender Auston Trusty from Colorado Rapids were signed by the North London club.

Turner later moved to Nottingham Forest, and Trusty was loaned out twice before eventually moving to Sheffield United.

An advantage for Noel Buck, if he decides to move to the Premier League, is his possession of an English passport through his father, which would simplify any work permit issues.
