Tottenham are set to rival Arsenal for Eden Hazard and Jan Vertonghen, according to Metro, with the pair firmly in Harry Redknapp’s sights for a January swoop.

The Lille and Ajax stars have been on Arsene Wenger’s radar for some time now, but the Frenchman has been unwilling to fork out the £45-million-rated sum for the pair.

Tottenham, however, are reportedly more willing to agree to the sky high price than Arsenal, with Redknapp convincing the Spurs’ board that if he makes the move for the duo, they will repay the dividends as Tottenham aim to qualify for the Champions League again.

Tottenham earned over £30 million in revenue from TV rights when they played in the Champions League last season, and for the first time in many years, Spurs look set to fight Arsenal for a place in the top four.

While Arsenal are said to have cooled their interest in Vertonghen of late, Hazard is still on Wenger’s wishlist, and if both the Gunners and Tottenham want to take on the playmaker, his worth of £35 million could be on the increase come January.
