ARSENAL and Tottenham are battling for Stevenage star Ben Wilmot.
The talented centre-back is regarded as one of the hottest prospects in the lower leagues.
Both Premier League heavyweights were vying for his signature in the summer.
However, Stevenage snubbed their advances and rejected bids worth around £1m.
According to The Sun, the arch-rivals aren’t willing to give up the chase though.
It’s suggested they’ll both try their luck again during the next transfer window.
Wilmot, 18, has made just 13 appearances for the League Two side.
Arsenal have previous experience snapping up defenders from lower down the pyramid.
They secured Rob Holding’s signature from Bolton – but he now looks set to be sold sooner rather than later.
The Gunners reportedly rebuffed a £4m approach from Burnley during the January transfer window.
