Arsenal and Tottenham are reportedly interested in Florian Grillitsch and have already held talks over the potential transfer of the Hoffenheim star.

German publication Bild are of the opinion that Arsenal and Tottenham are showing interest in Florian Grillitsch. The Hoffenheim star has reportedly had his agent flown to London for talks as well last week, with the Premier League duo keen on bringing the Austrian international over to England.

Florian Grillitsch came over to Germany, with Werder Bremen snapping him up from St. Polten in the summer of 2013. Grillitsch went through the paces at the iconic German outfit and even managed to break into the first-team setup. But, after 54 senior appearances for the club, the midfielder joined on-the-rise Hoffenheim in 2017 on a free transfer.

The transfer has paid dividends, with Grillitsch now not only a key part of the setup at Hoffenheim and working under one of the most enterprising young coaches in the footballing world in Julian Nagelsmann. But, the midfielder is also getting a taste of Champions League football, impressing in the 2-1 win over Manchester City in the Group Stage.

While he earned plaudits for his performance against Manchester City, two of City’s domestic adversaries have taken interest in his services. Arsenal and Tottenham are scouring the prospect of bringing the 23-year-old over to England.
