Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are on a transfer collision course over young Aston Villa star Andreas Weimann.
A report in the Daily Star claims both Arsene Wenger and Andre Villas-Boas have been impressed with the Austrian, despite Villa struggling in the Premier League, and are keeping tabs on his progress.
The 21-year-old scored against Arsenal last Saturday in a performance that showed much promise, though the Gunners ran out 2-1 winners in the end.
The north London rivals are set to meet on Sunday in a match that will likely go some way to deciding the make up of the Premier League top four this season.
Villas-Boas’ side currently lead the Emirates Stadium outfit by four points and a win will be a huge boost to their Champions League qualification hopes.
Arsenal will have to deal with in-form Gareth Bale if they have any hope of finishing above their local rivals again this season, as he has scored the majority of Spurs’ goals this season.
Both Arsenal and Tottenham have been accused of lacking depth in the attacking department and Weimann could bring an abundance of energy and positional versatility to either squad.
The report suggests they could clash again in the summer, as Weimann will be available at a knock down price due to the fact he is moving into the final year of his contract.
Weimann has scored ten goals this season and is improving rapidly, though Villa may be forced to sell if they end up being relegated.
