Arsenal are tracking developments involving young Fulham winger Patrick Roberts as a possible target this summer.

The England Under-17 starlet has only made two appearances for the Cottagers, but is already being eyed by top European clubs like Barcelona and Real Madrid.

He has contributed four goals to the under-17 side in seven matches, while registering his name on the scoresheet against Reading in the FA youth Cup semi-final this week.

Meanwhile, Fulham manager Felix Magath has no plans to give away Roberts, who came through the youth ranks, and believes that he will play a bigger role at Craven Cottage.

"Pat is a very big talent and he will have a great career in front of him, so I think it is good for him to make the experience now in the Premier League, so he will get used to it," Magath told

"He will be a player that we need in the future."
