Arsenal And Spurs Set To Battle For £5m Midfielder

Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are both set to do battle for 20 year old midfielder Ondrej Duda in the summer, according to the London Evening Standard.

His representatives have told the press that a series of giant clubs from across Europe are all chasing his signature at the end of the season.

The midfielder is currently at Legia Warsaw, and does not seem willing to leave the club until the current season has reached its conclusion, according to his agent.

Duda has previously been valued at around £5 million by The Sun, back when Everton, Newcastle and Napoli were thought to be leading the chase for his signature.

Despite the staggering interest in him from across Europe, the player is still not going to move until the end of the season.

Both Arsenal and Spurs are eyeing up midfield recruits in January.

Spurs’ situation is exacerbated by the fact they are attempting to sell Paulinho during the winter window.

Spurs Lead PL Pack Chasing £4m+ Striker – reports

Tottenham Hotspur are leading the chase for Burnley striker Danny Ings, ahead of a series of Premier League rivals for his signature, as reported by the Lancashire Telegraph.

The talented forward’s contract with the Lancashire club expires at the end of the season, and Burnley risk losing him for nothing, aside from independently decided compensation, if that comes about.

With the likes of Southampton, West Bromwich Albion, Newcastle United and European duo Wolfsburg and Ajax all chasing Ings, the likelihood of him agreeing a new deal has diminished considerably.

Spurs are hopeful that a bid for him during January will allow them to steal a march on the other sides.

The White Hart Lane club could even make a move for him prior to the game against Queens Park Rangers at home.

Burnley would likely not accept less than £4 million for Ings, but might be tempted to hold onto him, given that Premier League survival could depend on his goalscoring talents from now until the end of the season.

PL Rivals Look To Wrap Up £4m Spurs Defender Deal – reports

Swansea City are on the cusp of signing Kyle Naughton from Tottenham Hotspur for a fee of around £4 million, as reported by the Daily Mail.

While Naughton has also been targeted by Premier Division strugglers Leicester City, the windfall earned by Swansea from the imminent transfer of Wilfried Bony to Manchester City has allowed them to match Spurs’ valuation of the young right back.

Bony is set to join City for a staggering £30 million, giving Swansea money to play with in the winter window.

The arrival of DeAndre Yedlin from Seattle Sounders seems to have put an end to Naughton’s time at White Hart Lane.

Naughton has been pushed down the pecking order at north London by the signing of the rapid American, who impressed hugely at the World Cup in Brazil this summer.

The return of Kyle Walker to fitness means that Naughton is probably fourth choice, with Eric Dier also able to play on the right side of defence.
