Man Utd, Arsenal tracking Charlton defender Ezri Konsa

Charlton Athletic's young centre-back Ezri Konsa is a target for England's biggest clubs.

The Mirror says the 18-year-old has attracted interest from Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City.

The Addicks academy product has enjoyed an impressive start to the season after breaking into Russell Slade's first-team, starting all but three games this term.

Numerous scouts attended Charlton's 1-1 draw with Oldham on Tuesday to again run the rule over Konsa. He is rated at Charlton as just as big a prospect as Joe Gomez, who joined Liverpool for £3.5m last summer.

Konsa joined Charlton as an under-11 and signed a contract last December that expires in 2019.
