Arsenal were said to be on the verge of agreeing a £27 million deal for the 18-year-old defender only for Spurs to ruin their plans.

The Gunners defensive issues have been magnified after Laurent Koscielny refused to go on the clubs tour of the USA and is a reported target for French clubs Bordeaux, Rennes and Lyon (BBC).
