Arsenal and Tottenham are apparently bidding for the same £21.5 million defender.

Victor Nelsson is expected to depart Galatasaray this summer, with Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur both interested in signing him in the coming weeks.

Spurs and Arsenal have both been fairly busy in this window thus far. Guglielmo Vicario, James Maddison, and Manor Solomon have joined Ange Postecoglou‘s side, while Mikel Arteta‘s first three signings in this window are likely to be Kai Havertz, Jurrien Timber, and Declan Rice – though the latter two have yet to be revealed.

According to Fanatik, Arsenal and Tottenham are both interested in the same player – Nelsson.

For the first time since 2016, Arsenal finished above Tottenham in the Premier League last season.

The Gunners were great and almost won the Premier League title, whilst Spurs had a disastrous season and ended ninth, dropping out of all European tournaments.

Arsenal are anticipated to fight for the championship again, but Spurs are entering a new phase in which the emphasis will be on rebuilding the team and returning to the top four.

Tottenham‘s objective is to bolster their defense, and Victor Nelsson has been prominently connected – now, the report adds Arsenal to the mix.

According to reports, the two North London teams are dead set on signing Nelsson, who had a strong season for Galatasaray last season. He assisted them in winning the Turkish league title.

He is likely to leave this summer, and according to the source, he will be sold if his release clause of £21.5 million is met.

Mikel Arteta doesn’t need another central defender if Arsenal can complete the deal for Jurrien Timber, which appears to be the case.

Gabriel Magalhaes and William Saliba will start virtually every game, with reserves Jakub Kiwior and Timber. Ben White and Takehiro Tomiyasu are other options, and youthful Reuell Walters has been performing at the junior level and may be brought up as an emergency alternative if needed.

Tottenham, on the other hand, is desperate for fresh defenders. They really need to replace Eric Dier and Ben Davies at the back, and Nelsson is a viable option.

It would be intriguing to watch whether Tottenham makes a move for Galatasaray’s star player in the coming days.
