ARSENAL and Newcastle are battling it out to grab Rennes teen sensation Georgino Rutter.
The 18-year-old has only one year left in his contract and clubs are circling to try and land him in a £10million deal.
Gunners boss Mikel Arteta needs more firepower up front with speculation that Alexandre Lacazette could be sold.
But he would get more immediate game time if he joined Steve Bruce’s Toon.
Milan need to freshen up their squad after falling behind Juventus and neighbours Inter.
Rutter is originally from the island of Martinique in the Caribbean.
The young striker has turned down a new deal and could be sold to avoid him leaving when his contract ends.
He will be sold either in the next fewe weeks or in January.
Arsenal are in the hotseat as their scouts have been checking on his form over the last year.
The pacey striker played for Rennes’ B team last season and was set to step up to the first team this season.
