Reading goalkeeper Coniah Boyce-Clarke has attracted glances from several Premier League clubs, according to The Daily Mail. Arsenal and Manchester United are among the clubs interested in signing the teenage stopper.
Boyce-Clarke has been attracting attention for his performances in Reading’s U23 side, despite playing seven years above his age group.
The 16-year-old is widely regarded as one of the most talented young goalkeepers in the English game. And Reading face a battle to keep him.
Boyce-Clarke is currently preparing for his GCSEs and will make a decision on his future after finishing his exams.
Arsenal and Man United are among the Premier League clubs who could offer him a deal. But Reading want to keep their prized starlet and have offered him a deal.
The England U16 goalkeeper stands at 6ft 3in tall and is considered one for the future by the Three Lions.
After winning the Golden Glove competition at the Val de Marne tournament in France last summer, Boyce-Clarke is tipped for a big future.
Arsenal’s current academy keepers are Arthur Okonkwo and Macedonian Dejan Iliev. But Boyce-Clarke would add competition for places for the Gunners.
Staying at Reading would give the teenager a clear path to the first-team in the near future. However, the chance to play for a top-six Premier League club could tempt him away from Reading.
