Rangers and Celtic want 19-yr-old attacker who is being monitored by Premier League clubs

Wigan Athletic striker Kyle Joseph has been linked with a move to Rangers and Celtic. According to Daily Mirror, Premier League side Arsenal are thought to be keen on the 19-year-old as well.

Manchester United are thought to be interested in signing West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice at the end of the season.
