Man Utd, Arsenal watching Exeter City striker Ollie Watkins - Morrison

Exeter City striker Ollie Watkins is being watched by Manchester United and Arsenal.

Former Exeter and Crystal Palace forward turned pundit Clinton Morrison has seen Watkins in action first hand and thinks the 21-year-old is destined for the very top.

He told Sky Sports News: "There's a young lad when I was at Exeter who is doing well – Ollie Watkins.

"The young lad has got great potential.

"We used to only have two or three scouts at every game then, suddenly, this young lad started scoring and there'd suddenly be 20 scouts at a game – some from Arsenal and Manchester United.

"Therefore, I do believe this kid is one to look out for. He has got great potential and eventually, one day, I think he'll reach the Premier League."
