Arsenal and Tottenham set to battle it out for former Chelsea defender

Arsenal and Tottenham have identified the same summer transfer target...

Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are both looking to upgrade their defences in the summer.

The Gunners want to improve the depth in their squad in defence, whilst Spurs need to significantly improve their back line.

The two north London clubs have identified the same target and are set to head-to-head in the summer.

Arsenal vs Tottenham for Guéhi

Arsenal and Tottenham are both set to make a move for Marc Guéhi, according to the Evening Standard.

The defender has had an excellent season with Palace with his form earning him a recall to the England squad in March.

Spurs have long been interested in the 22-year-old and they are looking for homegrown signings.

Their defence this season has been shocking having conceded the sixth-most goals in the league.

Meanwhile, Arsenal have really felt the blow of losing William Saliba to injury with Rob Holding having to come into the team.

The Gunners want to ensure that a lack of quality in depth doesn’t come back to bite them again.

Any deal for the England international would see Chelsea cash in with the Blues due to a big sell-on fee.

He joined Palace from Chelsea in 2021 for £18 million.

The west London club also would also be given the chance to match any offer.
