Arsenal Step Up Pursuit Of £10m-Rated Championship Starlet

Gunners to make their move for talented full-back.

Arsenal are set to step up their £10m pursuit of Ipswich Town star Tyrone Mings in January after club scout Pat Holland was spotted watching the player in action in the side’s 1-0 victory over Watford at the weekend, according to the Daily Mirror.

Mings, 21, cost the Tractor Boys just £10,000 from non-league Chippenham less than two years ago and Crystal Palace had a £3m bid turned down in August.

However, since then he has penned a new three-year deal that has seen Ipswich place a £10m fee on his head.

And he is so highly rated at Portman road that manager Mick McCarthy believes he is on the threshold of earning international honours despite not yet being called up for the under-21s.

McCarthy said: “When we sold Aaron Cresswell to West Ham in the summer he
was the best left-back in the Championship.

“Cressy is now being touted for England honours and it will be good competition between him and Tyrone.”
