Emirates Stadium and White Hart Lane boss’s both want sharp shooter.
North London rivals Arsenal and Tottenham are going head-to-head in the race to sign Lille hotshot Moussa Sow.
According to reports in France, the near neighbours have both made contact about a possible January move for the free-scoring striker.
But the Ligue 1 champions are desperate not to lose the 25-year-old, who hit 25 goals in 36 appearances last term, and will demand around £20m for his signature.
Both Arsenal and Tottenham could do with the addition of extra fire-power and it now appears that Arsene Wenger and Harry Redknapp have taken a shine to the same striker. 25 year old Lille striker Moussa Sow has made it clear that he is ready to leave the Ligue 1 side he helped guide to a domestic crown last term and a list of prospective suitors are beating a path to the door of the French born Senegalese international.
Sow has netted six goals this term and finished as the top scorer in Ligue 1 last season with 25 and the powerful forward may well be a good fit for the physical demands of the Premier League and the former Rennes man has long been linked with a move to the red half of North London.
Arsenal have been over-reliant on Robin Van Persie for goals this season and back up options Gervinho, Marouane Chamakh and Park Chu-Young have failed to make an impact so a move for Sow could be a wise one.
Similarly Harry Redknapp could do with alternatives up front. Last term the Tottenham man had a quartet of international striking options at his disposal but Robbie Keane and Peter Crouch were offloaded and Roman Pavlyuchenko looks likely to also be sold.
Jermain Defoe’s form has been patchy and this has led to a great deal of the goal-scoring load rests with on loan Man City man Emmanuel Adebayor, a player who’s wage demands may actually fail to be a long term option for the White Hart Lane side.
