The Sun are reporting a tug-of-war between the Gunners and West Bromwich Albion for the Stevenage academy graduate, while the Independent report that Liverpool, Spurs and Southampton are also keen on signing Wilmot.

According to the Times, it would take an offer of £1m for Boro to part with youngster.

In an official club statement, Stevenage chairman, Phil Wallace confirmed interest in Wilmot and a number of Boro’s young stars, both from abroad and in England.

“Spurs, Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Burnley, Watford, Brighton, Bournemouth and West Brom have all registered interest and I am told there is also a top Bundesliga club that wants to speak to me,” he said.

Wilmot has made three consecutive starts for Darren Sarll’s side – including both the FA Cup third-round games against Sky Bet Championship side Reading – as he begins to establish himself in the first-team at the Lamex.
