Arsenal latest side gunning for Moore

Arsenal are the latest Premier League side to be linked with young Leicester City defender Liam Moore, following interest from Manchester United during the late stages of the summer transfer window.

With just a year left on his contract and having put in a number of impressive performances since graduating to the Foxes' first team at the start of the season, Moore has been linked with a string of top flight teams who are keen to snap-up the starlet.

The Metro reported today that Arsenal scouts were impressed by Moore having watched him during City's 1-0 victory over Blackpool at the King Power Stadium on Saturday, meanwhile Tottenham Hotspur, Everton and Aston Villa are also known to have sent scouts to watch the 19-year-old.

Moore is a regular at under-19 level for England and has become a hit amongst supporters having recieved a sudden call-up to the Foxes' first team following a dearth of injuries and departures to the club's defence over the summer. He made his Leicester City debut last season, having returned from a loan spell at Bradford City where he made 22 appearances.

The player himself remains focussed on the task at hand and insists that speculation surrounding his future will not deter him from putting in his shift for the Foxes.

"Other teams 'interested' has nothin 2 do with me or any1 from my side [sic]," Moore tweeted earlier, "Weather it's true or not. I'm a lcfc player tryin2 earn a new contact [sic]."
