Cape Town - Arsenal are interested in signing the next English defending sensation but it would cost the club £10 million to do so.
The Mirror report that Arsene Wenger has extensively scouted Ipswich youngster Tyrone Mings and is interested in signing the young left back.
Mings signed from non-league club, Chippenham, two years ago and has enjoyed a meteoric rise in the game.
Reports suggest that English Premiership club Crystal Palace failed with a £3 million bid in the summer transfer window.
Ipswich are looking to make an enormous profit on the talented young English defender after valuing Mings at £10 million despite arriving at the club for just £10 000.
Experienced Ipswich manager Mick McCarthy believes his young star is on the verge of senior honours for England even though he has yet to feature at Under-21 level.
