Arsenal & Tottenham defender target open to summer transfer

Published 2 Comments

Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool target Nicolas N'Koulou has fuelled speculation he is set for a summer transfer, after revealing that he will be forced to leave Marseille if the club receive a good offer, reports Sky Sports.

The 23-year-old defender has been a revelation for Les Phoceens this season, after he arrived at the Stade Velodrome from AS Monaco in June 2011, helping them to second place in the Ligue 1 table, seven points behind leaders Paris Saint-Germain.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has been credited with an interest in the Cameroon international, and is ready to lure him to the Emirates Stadium when the transfer window reopens in July.

However, Arsenal will face stiff competition for N'Koulou's signature, with north London rivals Tottenham also monitoring the African full-back's situation in France.

Andre Villas-Boas is keen to strengthen his defensive options at White Hart Lane, and has identified the Marseille star as a player that will improve his Spurs squad.

Meanwhile, Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers completes the trio of Premier League coaches believed to be jostling to secure N'Koulou's services, with additional interest coming from a host of other European clubs.

"The club and me are together on my future," N'Koulou reflected when speaking to Sky Sports. "If they receive an offer they can't refuse, then we will have to part company.

"Marseille is a great club and I love playing for them. They are part of my life."
