By Will Butcher
Arsenal are weighing up a move for Middlesbrough winger Harry Chapman, according to a report.
The Daily Mirror claim that Arsenal are keeping tabs on the 18-year-old, who is on loan at Sheffield United, after watching him produce a number of good performances for England Under-20s.
Chapman played alongside Lewis Cook, Dom Solanke and Adam Armstrong as the team won the four-nations tournament earlier this month, including an assist against the Netherlands which saw Celtic star Patrick Roberts score.
The winger also featured against the United States and Germany, as England secured three wins.
Chapman has failed to make a league start for the Blades this season despite his loan move from Aitor Karanka’s Premier League new boys, but has featured six times from the bench.
