Arsenal are ready to make a move for up-and-coming Dutch attacker Matthias Verreth but face competition from AC Milan for his signature, according to Calcio Mercato.

The 18-year-old is on the books of Eredivisie side PSV Eindhoven but is yet to make his senior side for the Dutch club.

Verreth is adjudged to be one of the most-exciting prospects in the Netherlands and has starred for both PSV reserves and the under-19 side.

The former Belgium under-17 international netted against Bayern Munich in the Uefa Youth League earlier this month and has caught the eye of visiting scouts with his pace and trickery on the wing.

Verreth is under contract with PSV until 2019 and as such any potential suitors would surely have to pay the Eredivisie outfit’s asking price to pry him away.

Arsenal have not signed many players from Holland over the current generation but Robin van Persie’s capture from Feyenoord is one of note.
