Our Arsenal and Tottenham supporting punters here in the Football Transfer Tavern have been scouring the back pages looking for something to clash over during the off season and now, thanks to some Spanish reports which have reached the bar, it looks as if they’ve found something.
According to reports from Dario Gol, the north London duo have both listed Real Madrid midfielder Mateo Kovacic as a potential summer signing.
Whilst there is no huge degree of interest from the duo, they could well turn up the heat as the summer progresses and their needs change.
Our landlord reckons both sides have a lot of work to do this summer with the Gunners looking to bounce back from an embarrassing season and their Lilywhite counterparts looking to build a side capable of competing in Europe as well as at home.
The former Inter Milan midfielder played a big role for Zinedine Zidane as the Galacticos went on to win their second Champions League title in as many years, beating Juventus in the final in Cardiff earlier this month.
Arsenal and Spurs fans we want to hear from you! Would you like to see Kovacic line up in north London next season? Let us know in the comments below…
