It was reported at the weekend that Spurs were closing in on the signing of Davinson Sanchez from Ajax.
Now though, it looks as though bitter rivals Arsenal are looking to hijack the move and sign the Colombian.
According to Football London, the Gunners are interested in bringing him in to bolster there defence.
Laurent Koscielny is undoubtedly Arsenal’s best defender, but Achilles issues could force him to sit out some games this season and Wenger could see Sanchez as his long term successor.
Barcelona, Real Madrid and Chelsea are all also thought to be monotoring the situation.
One thing that could give Arsenal the edge is their relationship with Ajax Director of Football and former Gunners star Marc Overmars.
Overmars was actually linked with a move to the Emirates this summer if they decided to hire a sporting director.
Arsenal have made two signings this summer in Sead Kolasinac and Alexandre Lacazette but look set to strengthen further with a central midfielder and attacking midfielder looking like the priorities.
