Arsenal are set to be beaten by Real Madrid for Peruvian whizkid Andy Polo.

The Daily Mail says striker Polo is considered one of the exciting attacking players to come out of South America since Sergio Aguero, with Jose Mourinho's side and the Gunners just two of a number of clubs monitoring his situation.

However according to South American media reports, the 17-year-old has already set his heart on a switch to the Bernabeu rather than the Emirates.

Polo currently plays for Universitario de Deportes where last year he helped his club win an Under 20 version of the Copa Libertadores.
