Arsenal and Spurs tipped for Brazilian battle - reports

Published Add your comment

Real Madrid plan to sell Kaka - a reported target for Arsenal and Tottenham - when the transfer window opens in January, it has been claimed.

According to El Mundo Deportivo, the Brazil international is surplus to requirements at the Santiago Bernabeu and will be offloaded in the new year - should the right offer be made - as the north London duo wait in the wings.

Arsenal, it was alleged, had hoped to sign Kaka on a season-long loan, having seen Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri leave the club in quick succession.


However, Arsenal instead acquired Mikel Arteta and Yossi Benayoun to compensate of the loss of the midfield duo, while Arsene Wenger also reinforced his defence with Per Mertesacker and Andre Santos.

Tottenham, meanwhile, were linked with a deadline day swoop for Kaka, as Harry Redknapp strived to make a marquee signing before the close of the window.

It is not thought, however, that Spurs made a formal enquiry for the 29-year-old, who is also said to be a target for former employers AC Milan.

Spurs, meanwhile, endured a relatively quiet final day of the transfer window as only Scott Parker made the move White Hart Lane.
