The North London derby needs very stoking, though the proverbial silly season will stoke it none the less.
With both sides, for the first time in a while, gearing up for a Champions League campaign, both the Emirates Stadium and White Hart Lane have been mooted as potential landing spot for a number of illustrious stars from around the footballing world this summer.
Now, the player’s wife Nera, has confirmed to Italian outlet Corriere della Sera (via CalcioMercato) that both clubs ARE interested in the 23-year old in a bid to cure their striking conundrums.
“There are many offers, but I do not negotiate with other clubs. I only talk about Mauro’s contract, that’s my role, not doing negotiations. Atletico Madrid, Tottenham and Arsenal have made contact. Napoli and AS Roma are also interested now,” she revealed.
Though the former Sampdoria man saw his progress stall last term, he remains one of the hottest prospects on the continent and notched an impressive 16 goals for the Nerazzurri last term.
