Arsenal and Spurs are the leading Premier League clubs chasing the signature of German international Serdar Tasci.

The Stuttgart defender has been solid for the Bundesliga outfit since graduating from their youth setup, and Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is a known admirer after recent comments from the player's agent.

“The situation is that Serdar (Tasci) is aware of the interest from the Premier League, and he is eager to play in England at some point," Uli Ferber told

"Serdar respects both clubs [Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur] as two of the biggest clubs in the Premier League."

23-year-old Tasci rose to prominence in Die Roten's title winning Bundesliga campaign back in 2006-07, and went on to prove himself on the Champions League stage.

The centre back earned international recognition for his fine form in 2008, making his debut against Belgium in 2008. Tasci has 12 caps to his name thus far, but is yet to feature in the World Cup despite being part of Germany's 23-man squad in South Africa.

Serie 'A' giants Juventus are also thought to be interested, but north London rivals Spurs and the Gunners must be classed as favourites after these agent quotes.

Wenger also appears to have the edge over Redknapp, with Ferber hinting that his client has admiration for the work of the Frenchman.

"Also he is a fan of Arsene Wenger, the work he has done, and has great respect for him,” Ferber concluded.
