As per transfer expert expert Fabrizio Romano, Newcastle and Wolverhampton Wanderers are among the teams monitoring the player's situation.

Romano posted on X (formerly known as Twitter): "Arsenal are still in negotiations to get new deal done for English 2005 born talent Amario Cozier-Duberry. Talks ongoing.

"Borussia Dortmund, Ajax, Anderlecht, Wolves and Newcastle are showing interest for free transfer in June — in case talks with #AFC collapse."

Cozier-Duberry has been tipped for a big future having impressed for Arsenal at youth level. He played a vital role in the club’s run to the FA Youth Cup final last season where he was compared to Buyako Saka.

“Amario is very exciting and Mikel [Arteta] likes him,” Arsenal under-18s boss Jack Wilshere told the Athletic last year. “He reminds me of Bukayo Saka, plays in the same position as him, needs to get better with his decision-making like Bukayo did, but he’s definitely exciting.

“In some moments he’s unplayable. You give him the ball and he can make things happen. You can set up a team and have a game plan, but when you’ve got individuals like that you’ve got a chance.”

Cozier-Duberry is yet to make his senior debut for Arsenal but he has regularly trained and toured with Mikel Arteta'a first-team.
