Premier League giants Manchester United and Brighton and Hove Albion are chasing Ipswich Town youngster Dylan Crowe, according to a report from the Derbyshire Telegraph. 

The Premier League duo are also facing competition from German clubs RB Leipzig and Borussia Monchengladbach.

Portuguese club Benfica are also closely monitoring the progress of the young Tractor Boys starlet.

The 17 year old has been offered a professional contract by the East Anglian club, but it is understood that the chasing pack are willing to pay £500,000 in order to secure his services.

He has been capped by the England U17’s and has made six appearances for the Young Lions.

He was a key part of the England squad which reached the semi-finals of the U17 European Championships, with his impressive performances catching the eye throughout the competition.

Ipswich have already lost young striker Ben Knight to Manchester City this summer, and now they looked resigned to losing Crowe to the big leagues.

The right back now has a decision to make regarding his future, with a promising career beckoning for him.

Manchester United have one of the best academies in the country, but there is a slim chance that Crowe could break in to the first team if he was to join the Red Devils.

It is likely that, if he were to stay with Ipswich, that he could break in to Paul Hurst’s first team plans within a couple of years.

Crowe is one of England’s brightest young prospects, and is a man in demand this summer.
