Tottenham plan to hijack deal from under fierce rivals' noses

William Saliba is being chased by both north London clubs William Saliba is being chased by both north London clubs

William Saliba is subject to a late offer from Tottenham Hotspur as the club attempts to outbid their arch nemesis Arsenal for securing the services of the Saint Etienne defender.

Arsenal's correspondent for Goal, Charles Watts, added: "Reports from France that Spurs have come in and bid beyond what Saint-Etienne wanted for Saliba".

Zaniolo is clearly a talented individual, he had a great season for Roma which culminated in a call up to the Italian national team.

He claims that Spurs have offered €30m, plus bonuses, which is more than what Arsenal had already agreed with Saint Etienne.

EU Commission candidate von der Leyen grilled by legislators
MEPs will vote on Ms von der Leyen's presidency bid at the European Parliament in Strasbourg next week. Brexit is scheduled for 31 October, the day before the new European commission takes office.

No fee has been mentioned but he will not come cheap and that again may well hinder Arsenal but even so, the fact that it is being reported that we are in the running is a positive sign. Arsenal, however, are still confident that the player will keep his word and join the club.

The Europa League finalists were close to agreeing on a deal for the 18-year-old that would have seen him stay at his current club on loan for one more season, before arriving at the Emirates Stadium in 2020.

Arsenal had delved deep in negotiations for the €30m rated defender but Saint-Étienne were unable to accept the payment structure suggested by Arsenal.

Emery's limited transfer budget has made it hard for the Spaniard to land his top targets, with Celtic demanding £25m for left-back Kieran Tierney while a £40m bid for Crystal Palace's Wilfried Zaha was given short shrift as the Eagles demand £80m.
