Tottenham and Arsenal are battling for Montpellier striker Olivier Giroud.

The People says the Montpellier marksman has smashed 20 goals in 27 matches and also found the net for his country against Germany in midweek.

Gunners scouts have been monitoring him all season and, after missing out on Lukas Podolski in January, are eager to capture him this summer.

However, London rivals Tottenham hope their new status as one of England's top clubs will impress the 25-year-old and help them beat Arsenal to his prized signature.
