Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham chase Anderlecht duo

Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham are all interested in a deal to bring two talented Belgian youngsters to the Premier League.

Midfielders Dennis Praet, aged 19, and Youri Tielemans, aged 16, both played for Anderlecht against Paris St-Germain in last week’s Champions League clash. And the Daily Star reports that scouts from all three English clubs were in attendance to watch the young stars.

But representatives from Italian sides Inter Milan, AC Milan and Juventus were also at the game to keep tabs on Praet and Tielmans.

The race for Praet could heat up in January, but it seems more likely that interested parties will monitor his progress for the rest of the season ahead of a move next summer.

Don't know if we really need another young number 10 but I love Belgian playersso wouldn't to mind to much. For 19 he looks a talent from the little I have seen of him.

Hope there's some truth in that we were there watching. Not all deals for young talent will work in our favour but it's an area i think we neglected until recent years. We need to be looking at and signing talent at this stage in their career, not when they're already established and expensive players.

As long as it doesn't disrupt Pritchard. Would be interesting to sign Praet then send Pritchard the other way on loan. They've probably got someone lined up to replace him, but a year playing Belgian football and probably Champions League would be great.
