SCRAM­BLE TO SIGN YOUNG IP­SWICH STAR WICK­HAM

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - GOODWINES -

MANCH­ESTER United, Arse­nal, Liver­pool and Chelsea will be in­volved in an un­prece­dented scram­ble to sign 16-year-old striker Con­nor Wick­ham from Ip­swich in Jan­uary.

Wick­ham, the youngest first-team player in Ip­swich’s his­tory, is re­garded in the game as the most ex­cit­ing young English­man to emerge since Wayne Rooney burst onto the scene for Ever­ton.

He added to his fast-grow­ing rep­u­ta­tion with a hat-trick for Eng­land’s Un­der-17s re­cently.

And Roy Keane’s club fear he may be lured away be­fore he can sign a pro­fes­sional con­tract in March. – Daily Mail.
