Luc Castaignos' agent has revealed that Inter Milan are set to beat Arsenal and Manchester United in the battle for the Dutch starlet.
The 18-year-old striker has been tracked by a host of Europe's top clubs after emerging on the scene at Feyenoord.
And the player's representative, Arie Treffers, acknowledges both Arsenal and United are on keen on him, but it is now expected that he will sign for Inter next month.
"At the moment Inter Milan is beating the competition of Arsenal and Manchester United for him," he told calciomercatoweb.
"I heard from Marco Branca (Inter's sporting director) who told me that there might be news in the first week of January and I think at that time he will formalise a proposal to Feyenoord.
"The player should be purchased immediately by Inter, but will stay in the Netherlands until June, when he will wear the Nerazzurri shirt.
"Things have been postponed because of the Club World Cup and then the story regarding Benitez, but we have very good sensations.
"I believe Luc can be the right man for the attack of the future.
"He is 18 years-old, but already thinks like a 23 year-old man, in my opinion has a stronger mentality than (Mario) Balotelli and training alongside great champions like (Diego) Milito and (Samuel) Eto'o will be good for him."
