Arsenal & Spurs fight for €10m summer target

Published Add your comment

Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are both tracking the progress of Udinese midfielder Emmanuel Badu with a view to a €10m summer bid, according to Italian publication Tuttosport.

Badu has been a consistent performer for Udinese this season in a deeper midfield role, with the Ghana international's displays reportedly enough to attract the attention of two leading Premier League clubs.

Udinese are prepared to discuss selling the versatile midfielder but only after next summer's World Cup, hoping that if Badu shines for Ghana at the South American showpiece his valuation will rocket.

The Serie A mainstays currently value the 23-year-old at around €10m and are willing to negotiate with either Arsenal or Spurs, who have so far kept their interest to a watching brief.

Francesco Guidolin's side have a proven track record of balancing the books by making a profit on players after a successful spell in Udine, a stance which should encourage interested parties to lodge an offer with owners the Pozzo family.

Both Arsenal and Spurs are expected to strengthen during the close season, although both North London giants are blessed with a variety of options in Badu's position.

Spurs in particular could target Badu as part of a summer reshuffle, as new manager Tim Sherwood attempts to put his own stamp on an inflated squad at White Hart Lane.
