Arsenal, Chelsea eyeing Middlesbrough hotshot Calum Kavanagh

The race for Middlesbrough's teenage hotshot Calum Kavanagh is heating up.

The Irish Herald reports the 16-year-old Irish youth forward has caught the eye of a host of clubs with his goalscoring exploits for Boro's Under-18s.

Celtic have joined Arsenal and Chelsea in the race to sign Kavanagh.

Boro are desperate to keep hold of the youngster - who is the son of Cardiff and Stoke legend and ex-Irish international Graham Kavanagh - with the ace also keen to stay.

However, the Teessiders are yet to tie him down to a long-term package, with the player believed to want a shorter deal in order to see how his career develops over the next year or so.
