ARSENAL and Manchester United have reportedly joined Chelsea in eyeing “the next Neymar”.
Antonio Nusa is already a key man for Club Brugge, who he joined in 2021Rex

The Norwegian, 18, became the second youngest Champions League scorer ever in September 2022 during a 4-0 group win over Porto.
But scouts were disappointed when Brugge left Nusa out of the squad for Thursday’s 1-1 Europa Conference League draw at home to Besiktas.
Chelsea had a £26million deadline-day bid rejected for the two-footed teen who already has two full caps.
The playmaker told Norway’s TV2: “Fantastic! He’s an incredibly exciting player.
“Every time he gets the ball, it’s exciting. He is still young and will get even better. It was cool to see him.”
And Mats Solheim, who played with Nusa at Norwegian top-flight club Stabaek from 2020-21, went even further with his praise.
The ex-defender, 35, said: “I can see similarities to Neymar in Nusa’s movements and in the way he uses the ball.
“There is still a small gap between them, but he can get there.”
