Manchester United and Arsenal are keeping a keen eye on Norwich star Ben Godfrey, The Mirror says.

The 21-year-old defender is reportedly wanted by Lyon and RB Leipzig but the Premier League teams could jump to the front in the race to sign him.

Godfrey, who has made 15 Championship appearances this season, is said to be valued by Norwich at around £10 million ($13m).

All four clubs will have scouts at Carrow Road to run the rule over Godfrey, who has attracted interest from Europe’s top clubs with his commanding displays in central defence for Norwich this season.

United are in the market for a central defender and are looking at Godfrey as a potential option, while Arsenal could also move for the 21-year-old as Unai Emery looks to overhaul his rearguard.
