Arsenal and Tottenham in pursuit of Roma defender Manolas

North London rivals Arsenal and Tottenham are both said to be interested in AS Roma defender Kostas Manolas.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, the Gunners and Spurs are set to battle it out for the 24-year-old centre-back.

The Greece international moved to the Stadio Olimpico last summer in a €15million move from Olympiakos and impressed in his debut season in Serie A, making 40 starts in all competitions.

Roma, though, are desperate to keep hold of their highly-rated defender and it may take a significant bid from either clubs to tempt the Serie A outfit into selling the player.
