Tottenham and Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are confrontational towards each other at the best of times but reports stating that Mauricio Pochettino’s side are leading their North London rivals in the chase for a teenage prodigy have sent things into overdrive.
The punters have been alerted to a claim from TalkSport that states 17-year-old Serbian star Luka Jovic is being chased by both Premier League giants but identify that CalcioMercato have declared Tottenham are currently leading the chase.
With 10 goals in 32 appearances for Red Star Belgrade, the youngster is quickly becoming one of the most sought after young players in European football.
Reports indicate that Jovic prefers a move to White Hart Lane due to Pochettino’s willingness to blood youngsters into the first-team, which has led to Spurs fans at the bar mocking their North London counterparts.
Arsenal fans will be quick to point out they have a wealth of young talent at the club but they’ve secretly admitted to us that they’re a bit gutted by this news, as Jovic’s numbers seriously impress them.
Tottenham and Arsenal fans, which of your clubs is best suited to you footballers? Keep it clean but let us know in the comments below- we reckon it’s a tough one!
