Arsenal ready to scupper Spurs attempts to land £17m formidable defender

While few transfer stories can ever hope to live up to that of Sol Campbell’s switch between Arsenal and Tottenham (other than the rather bizarre Dele Alli-Gunners switch that recently emerged), the notion of a player coming between the two is a controversial prospect. 

Clearly, the flames of the North London derby need fanning, though the proverbial silly season we have embarked upon in these summer months does its best to stoke the fires.

So, reports from Kick Off claiming Arsene Wenger and his charges are preparing to move in on a reported Tottenham target have sent the punters in the Transfer Tavern into raucous debate.

They claim that the Le Prof is weighing up a move for Germany defender Jonas Hector this summer, who has also been linked with a £17m move to Liverpool

The 26-year old left-back has emerged as one of the few formidable options in that berth available on the market this summer, making him a hot property.

With doubts over the long-term future of Kieran Gibbs, the Gunners could be in need of both cover and competition for Nacho Monreal in that position.

Currently plying his trade with FC Köln, the German international could be one of the names to look out for over the coming months.

Should Arsenal really be focusing on a defender?
