Birmingham youngster Foday Nabay is just 13 years old, but there is heavy interest in the Premier League for the midfielder's signature with the likes of Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea and Man City all planning a move for the starlet. The Daily Mail reports that these clubs will be joined by Manchester United who are likely to table an offer for the central midfielder this Tuesday.

The youngster played for Birmingham's academy side last season scoring 12 goals. Nabay, who turns 14 next month, has deregistered as a Birmingham player causing a stir in the Premier League for his transfer this summer. Although the Blues will be liable to compensation, it is reported that the top clubs could land the Sierra Leone born footballer for a meager amount of £65,000, which makes him a terrific value-for-money buy.

Reports have confirmed that the player's representatives have already held talks with Liverpool and Arsenal and are due to meet officials from Aston Villa on Monday. United are expected to make their offer on Tuesday in an attempt to bring the player to Old Trafford this summer. However, the player's representatives have also suggested that the youngster could prefer a new deal with Birmingham since he is more likely to break into the first team at St. Andrews much earlier than at the top clubs.
