The Gunners ace shot to prominence after an impressive run of form during the just-concluded season.

At the time, the teenage star embarked on an incredible goalscoring streak, finishing the campaign with 32 goals for Arsenal's youth side.

However, one of the greatest highlights of his goalscoring run was scoring an astonishing 10 goals in a single match against Liverpool.

Bayern plot move for Obi-Martin

His performances have now seemingly caught the attention of Europe's big guns, with Metro UK reporting that Bayern are keen on his services.

While Arsenal are understood to have persuaded the youngster to stay, they face difficulties making this happen, with Bayern said to have tabled an attractive offer.

However, the Bavarians will equally have to contend with competition from several clubs, who are also keen to sign the wonderkid.

Borussia Dortmund, FC Copenhagen, and Ajax are among the teams reportedly monitoring Obi-Martin's situation.

Meanwhile, Bayern have embarked on a serious squad overhaul, with the club looking to reclaim the Bundesliga title, which they lost to Bayer Leverkusen.

Football London reports that midfielder Joshua Kimmich is among a host of players the Vincent Kompany-tutored side are keen to release this summer.

Others include Matthijs De Ligt, Leon Goretzka, Kingsley Coman, Serge Gnabry, and Noussair Mazraoui.
