Tottenham overtake Arsenal in race to sign superstar

Tottenham have overtaken their local rivals Arsenal in the race to sign Paris Saint-Germain forward Ezequiel Lavezzi.

Arsenal had been viewed as the only credible interested party in the Premier League for the Argentine International, not any more.

The fact that Tottenham can match Arsenal financially, are probably Champions League bound and have an Argentinian manager are some of the reasons that the North London outfit are now seen as strong contenders to sign the forward.

If Tottenham do beat Arsenal to the signing of Lavezzi it would be a body blow for the Gunners, the last thing they want is for the title rivals to strengthen at their expense. © 2017 Frontier Theme
