Two Premier League clubs have reportedly joined the race to sign 2019 Nigeria U17 invitee Malcolm Ebiowei this summer.
According to the Daily Mail UK, Manchester United and Newcastle United are the latest teams linked with a move for the Derby County wonderkid.
Previously, it was reported that his form in the recently concluded season attracted the interest of Tottenham Hotspur and Crystal Palace.
Ebiowei, who was named on Nigeria's provisional roster for the 2019 FIFA U17 World Cup, had a breakout campaign with Derby County and finished the season strongly, with three goal involvements in his last three games in the Championship.
The 18-year-old is under contract with Derby County until June 30, 2022 and is unlikely to extend his stay though manager Wayne Rooney would like to keep him.
Once regarded as one of the top youth team prospects at Arsenal, Ebiowei joined Scottish giants Rangers in February 2020 after he was not offered a scholarship by the Emirates outfit for reasons not related to football.
The attacking midfielder was on the books of Chelsea before joining Arsenal aged eleven.
