Report: Arsenal and Manchester United both enter race for Spurs-linked defender

Tosin Adarabioyo has long been linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur, but the Fulham centre-half is now being eyed by Premier League rivals Arsenal and Manchester United too.

Tottenham may have the likes of Cristian Romero, Micky van de Ven, and Radu Dragusin at their disposal now, but it seems they still want to sign another central defender in the summer.

While Romero and van de Ven are the first-choice pairing, and Dragusin offers adequate cover, Ange Postecoglou is keen to ensure he is never short of options in this critical position.

A name that has been on Tottenham’s radar for quite some time is that of Tosin Adarabioyo. The Fulham man is out of contract in the summer, but has recently been offered a new long-term deal by the club with a pay rise attached (Fabrizio Romano).

It was recently claimed that Liverpool had joined Spurs in the race for the defender (Football Insider).

Who will Tosin Adarabioyo sign for?

Now, it seems more Premier League clubs are interested in snapping up Adarabioyo on a free transfer, as Arsenal and Manchester United have entered the fray.

That is according to sources at HITC, who claim five English clubs are monitoring the 26-year-old, with Manchester United and Arsenal now “keeping tabs” on him ahead of this summer.

It is thought Adarabioyo will “utilise his impending free agency” and select his next destination at the end of the season for a free transfer.

Apparently, with ongoing Profit and Sustainability issues throughout the Premier League, the idea of signing Adarabioyo for nothing is very “appealing” to a number of clubs.

The report adds that AC Milan, Juventus, Lyon and Marseille are also admirers.

Spurs Web Opinion

There are lots of centre-backs we are interested in, but Adarabioyo is one I can really see us gunning for. Similarly with Lloyd Kelly at Bournemouth, I think we could and probably should be looking at a cheaper option for this fourth centre-back.
