Notts County's teenage goalkeeper, Fabian Speiss, has caught the attention of many big Premier League teams, including Arsenal, Manchester United, Tottenham and Manchester City, all of whom are reportedly keeping a close eye on the 18-year-old German, according to an ESPN report.
"Man Utd have been looking at him for a long time. There were also scouts from Man City and Tottenham at our youth game against Doncaster last week and Arsenal watched him when he was out on loan at Lewes," ESPN quoted Mick Leonard (County's Head of Youth) as saying.
Although the young German is yet to play a first team game for Notts County, he is highly appreciated by his current club's staff, who believe that Speiss possesses all the qualities of a star footballer.
"He's as good as any young goalkeeper I have seen and I wouldn't be surprised if any of the big clubs did want him. He's got everything a modern goalkeeper needs," Leonard added.
Leonard, who feels Speiss has a very mature and commanding attitude, believes the 18-year-old goalkeeper could go a long way if he keeps on working hard.
"He's got a lot of ability and a great attitude. He's very mature and is physically very big so he commands his box. He's brave and he kicks the ball well. He can go all the way if he keeps working as hard as he is now. He has got so much potential.I would love to see him play for our first team. I believe he's good enough and, if he did, his value would only rise even more," he further added.
