Arsenal and Manchester United are keeping tabs on Ukraine international Mykolo Shaparenko, according to a report in England.

Website CaughtOffside is reporting that the 20-year-old is attracting interest from a host of Premier League clubs this summer.

The same article states that Arsenal and Manchester United are in pole position to sign the Dynamo Kiev star.

According to the same story, Chelsea FC are also interested in a deal to sign Shaparenko but the Blues are banned from signing players for the next two transfer windows.

CaughtOffside go on to add that West Ham could also challenge Arsenal and Manchester United for the Ukrainian’s signature given the Hammers already have his compatriot Andriy Yarmolenko in their ranks already.

The report warns that Shaparenko could struggle to get a work permit in England given the Dynamo Kiev starlet has only made four appearances for the Ukraine national team.

Manchester United have already signed Swansea City midfielder Daniel James and Crystal Palace full-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka in the summer transfer window.

The Gunners have only brought in Brazilian teenager Gabriel Martinelli in a £1.6m deal from Ituano this summer.

Arsenal finished in fifth place ahead of Manchester United last term but both teams missed out on a Champions League spot.
