Arsenal are reportedly keeping tabs on Tottenham target Leandro Damiao in their pursuit of summer reinforcements.
According to The Mirror, the north London rivals are both in the running to sign the Internacional striker, who scored 22 times in just 24 appearances for the Brazilian club last season.
Spurs had initially been installed as the frontrunners to capture the 21-year-old after talkSPORT reported the White Hart Lane club had commenced talks with Internacional concerning the acquisition of Damiao.
Harry Redknapp had been on a scouting trip to watch Damiao at close quarters as the youngster made his Brazil debut at the Emirates Stadium - the home of Arsenal - against Scotland in March.
The Spurs boss was said to have been suitably impressed by what he saw and has since sanctioned a move for Damiao, who has been rated at around €15 million.
However, it would now seem that Spurs will have to fend off interest from Arsenal for the Samba starlet, as they too look to add another goalscorer to their ranks during the transfer window.
Arsenal are already making progress in their quest to bring in more potent attacking options, with Lille forward Gervinho and Shakhtar Donetsk playmaker Willian on the radar of the Gunners.
The former is already thought to have opened talks with Arsenal regarding a move, after Lille revealed they had received an offer from the Gunners for the Ivory Coast international.
