Arsenal move ahead of Tottenham in race to sign championship ace

Wolves are willing to sell Helder Costa, and Arsenal are leading the race to sign him.

According to coach Paul Lambert, Wolves would not stand in the way of Helder Costa if the right offer is made. The Portuguese star has been a shining light in the resurgent Wolves side, contributing six goals and five assists since joining initially on loan this season. His impressive performance saw his loan deal made permanent in January.

The 23 year old is tipped for greatness and is unlikely to stay at Wolves beyond this season, with his manager admitting that the player has his price and they would be powerless to stop him from moving if a big money offer is made.

The winger signed permanently for £13 million and is likely to be sold for a sum upwards of £20 million.

London rivals, Arsenal and Tottenham along with other top Premier League and European sides have been linked with a move for the player. However, Arsenal have been tipped as his likely destination, with the Gunners leading the race for his signature. © 2017 Frontier Theme
