Udinese have turned down an £8million bid for Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal transfer target Matej Vydra.
According to the Express, the Italian club confirmed had received the offer from an English club but would not name which club it was.
Arsenal and Spurs have both been credited with an interest in the young Czech Republic striker, but it appears as though they will need to pay close to £10million if they want to land him.
Vydra was on loan at Championship side Watford last season and was one of the player’s of the year, scoring 22 league goals as the Hornets got to the playoff final.
The 21-year-old suffered injury heartache in that game and was forced to watch from the bench in the second half as Crystal Palace ran out 1-0 winners to secure Premier League promotion.
While it is unknown whether the unsatisfactory bid came out of either Emirates Stadium or White Hart Lane, both Arsene Wenger and Andre Villas-Boas are reportedly looking to add attacking talent to their squads this summer.
There were not only Premier League teams interested in Vydra, as the report claims two offers from the Bundesliga were also rejected.
