Ajani Burchall attracting interest from top clubs
Four English Premier League clubs are in the hunt to sign Bermudian winger Ajani Burchall, according to the website Football League World.
Arsenal were reported to be interested in the 16-year-old a couple of months ago after he rejected a scholarship deal with Bournemouth and looks set to leave the club this summer.
Now Aston Villa have joined Arsenal, Leeds United, and West Ham United in the race for the exciting youngster when his Bournemouth contract expires, according to Football Insider, with Villa now registering their interest ahead of a potential summer deal.
Schoolboy Burchall made his debut for Bournemouth earlier this season when he became the third-youngest player to represent the club when he came off the bench against Huddersfield Town in December.
The interest from clubs in the top flight will make it difficult for Bournemouth to hold on to the Bermudian youngster. However, while the Cherries will be due some sort of compensation, losing a promising youngster will be a blow to the Sky Bet Championship club who have promotion aspirations.
They sit in seventh place in the Championship, three points off the final play-off spot but with a game in hand.
