Arsenal and Tottenham eyeing £50M Everton defender Michael Keane

Arsenal and Tottenham are eyeing Everton defender Michael Keane.

The Mirror says Tottenham are weighing up a £50million summer move for Everton and England defender Keane.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is in the market for a young centre-back this summer and has identified Keane as his first-choice target.

Scouts from Tottenham were at Everton's 2-0 win at West Ham on Saturday to watch Keane, while north London rivals Arsenal are also understood to have had representatives there looking at the ball-playing centre-back.

Although Everton would be reluctant to lose Keane, it is understood a bid in the region of £50m - double what the Toffees paid for him - could see Tottenham land the cultured defender.
