Euro Paper Talk: Arsenal, Spurs eye Roma sensation; Skriniar battle on

Oli Fisher

Spurs and Arsenal face a fight to land a £44m-rated Roma talent, while Bayern Munich are after an €80m Man Utd target, according to Wednesday’s European papers.



Tottenham and Arsenal are ready to do battle for Roma star Cengiz Under, according to reports from Italy.

Reports earlier in the year suggested that the Gunners had seen a £26m offer for Under snubbed, with the Serie A club reportedly holding out for £44m.

Arsenal’s interest was revealed by Tuttomercato, who also claimed Monaco have offered just under £31m too.

Now, according to Calcionews24, the north London rivals are ready to battle Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund for the 21-year-old.

However, the report does state that Roma are holding out for a whopping €50m if they are to part with their prized young star.
