Arsenal and Spurs are both interested in Hoffenheim midfielder Florian Grillitsch, according to Bild, via The Sun.

The 23-year-old joined from fellow Bundesliga side Werder Bremen in January 2017, and has scored once in 18 appearances so far this season.

Apparently, the north London rivals are set to battle for the Austrian’s signature. Both clubs are looking for midfield replacements, with Mousa Dembele set to leave Spurs and Aaron Ramsey out of contract with Arsenal at the end of the season.

His agent was in England this week, with Hoffenheim battling Manchester City in the Champions League, and like any agent was talking up a potential move for his player.
