Tottenham and Arsenal in tussle over Brazilian

Bernard There is nothing we love more that a bit of good rivalry here in the Football Transfer Tavern, and it seems that Metro are about to provide it by claiming that both Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are keen on Bernard.

The Shakhtar Donetsk player has been linked with a move to Arsenal for some time now and, after a less than stellar World Cup, we are slightly surprised to see that not only is Arsene Wenger still keen on the creative player, but that Tottenham Hotspur have also joined the hunt for his signature.

As one of our punters notes, quite how well Bernard would acclimatise to the physical nature of life in the Premier League remains to be seen and we certainly think there would be a couple of teething issues – with Spurs certainly having had enough of players taking their time to bed in at the club!

Bernard would initially be available on loan, but why bother bringing in a loan player to let him take a season to bed in only for him to leave?

Spurs fans: Would you even bother wasting your time fighting Arsenal for Bernard or are efforts better spent elsewhere? Let us know your thoughts below.
