Arsenal eyeing move for Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard’s wonderkid cousin – reports
Bobby Duncan is an England U-17 international
Saturday, November 11, 2017
Arsenal are reportedly keeping a close eye on Manchester City wonderkid Bobby Duncan.
Duncan made history last year when he became the first England player at any level to score a hat-trick against Brazil, with his treble coming in an Under-16 international.
He is now part of the England U-17 set-up and netted against Portugal earlier this month.
Duncan, who was born in Huyton and has cited Steven Gerrard as a 'big influence', is rated highly by City staff but faces a tough task to break into their first-team in the near future.
The Gunners are renowned for giving young players a chance at senior level and hope that could tempt Duncan into swapping the Etihad for the Emirates.
City are unlikely to let Duncan leave without a fight having recently lost another of their brightest academy stars, Jadon Sancho.
Sancho, also an Under-17 England international, joined Borussia Dortmund this summer after making it clear he wanted out of City.
