Arsenal joined by transfer rivals Spurs for Ajax star Donny van de Beek as Poch steps up Sessegnon pursuit


ARSENAL and Spurs are in a transfer battle for Ajax player Donny van de Beek.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino is also in pursuit of Fulham star Ryan Sessegnon.

Spurs are aiming to secure new players after not buying any since Lucas Moura early last season

The Gunners are looking to snap up the Dutch midfielder from their rival Spurs to strengthen their squad according to The Times.

Arsenal failed to qualify for the Champions League next season after their humiliating defeat to Chelsea last night.

Tottenham though are preparing to face Liverpool in the Champions League final which may snatch van de Beek away from The Reds.

The 22-year-old was rumoured to be heading to Spurs for £45million.

Pochettino also has his eye on English player Sessegnon, 19, who has been linked with Spurs for years.

If The Yids manage to sign a new player this will be the first new blood in the squad since their signing of Lucas Moura in January 2018.


Van de Beek has scored 20 goals for Ajax in 94 appearances.

The ace has also played for The Netherlands where he is yet to score.

Ever since Spurs knocked Ajax out of the Champions League transfer rumours about the Dutch player had been circling.
