Spurs rival Arsenal for Sess

Published Add your comment

Tottenham are planning a summer transfer battle with north London rivals Arsenal as both clubs plan to sign highly-rated Sunderland forward Stephane Sessegnon, reports The Sun.

The 27-year-old Benin international has been in impressive form for the Black Cats this season, and was recently praised by Martin O'Neill as the leading light at the Stadium of Light since his arrival on Wearside back in December.

The attacking midfielder has often operated as an emergency striker for Sunderland this season, and has chipped in with seven goals in all competitions.

After arriving in a £6million deal from Paris Saint-Germain last January, Arsenal or Spurs will need to stump up a significantly higher figure in order to convince Sunderland to sell.

Arsene Wenger is a known admirer of Sessegnon, and is looking to bring him to the Emirates Stadium in a bid to strengthen his attacking options this summer.

Meanwhile, Harry Redknapp is also seeking attacking reinforcements at White Hart Lane, and will rival Arsenal for the player's signature.

After yesterday's 5-2 derby defeat, Tottenham will be hoping to get one over their local rivals when the transfer window reopens in June, and a bid in the region of £10million could be enough to do so.
