Tottenham have reportedly emerged as frontrunners to sign Arsenal target Moussa Sow.

The Senagalese striker has been in free-scoring form since signing for Lille in 2008, and has netted 29 times in 48 appearances for the French champions.

This potent form has seen Sow frequently linked with a move away from the Stade Lille-Metropole, and Spurs and Arsenal have been touted as potential destinations for the 25-year-old.

And now, according to talkSPORT, Spurs are favourites to seal a deal for Sow, but may have to part with as much as £18 million to bring him to White Hart Lane.

Harry Redknapp is said to be keen to bolster his goalscoring department with Roman Pavlyuchenko set for the exit and the long-term future of Emmanuel Adebayor as a Spurs player uncertain.

Arsenal, meanwhile, has also been linked with numerous strikers as Arsene Wenger looks to relieve the burden on Gunners captain Robin van Persie.

Along with Sow, Real Madrid hotshot Karim Benzema and German star Lukas Podolski are also reported to be on the Arsenal radar.
