There is a reason why a number of Premier League clubs are chasing Peterborough United starlet Ricky Jade-Jones.
On Tuesday night, he showed exactly why so many clubs want him. Burnley, Southampton, Manchester United, Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool have all watched the starlet this season, according to The Daily Mail.
The 17-year-old netted his third goal in just his fifth senior game and he is defying his age to shine in senior football.
Jade-Jones is a prolific striker at youth level and he is showing what he can do for Peterborough’s first-team. Posh crashed out of the EFL Trophy last night but Jade-Jones found the net.
The teenager opened the scoring in some style. Picking the ball up in just inside the opposition half, Jade-Jones drove at the defence, cut onto his right foot and unleashed a powerful low shot into the bottom corner.

This was his third senior goal already and his second in the EFL Trophy. Up against an Ipswich Town defence, this was no mean feat. Jade-Jones is destined for big things and scouts are starting to take notice.
Jade-Jones might get less first-team minutes if he moves to the Premier League. But he is one to watch for the future and there is a reason why so many clubs are chasing him.
