Arsenal, Tottenham face Napoli competition for Benjamin Pavard

Arsenal and Tottenham are facing competition for VfB Stuttgart defender Benjamin Pavard.

The 22-year-old has played at right-back for France at this summer's World Cup and scored a stunning goal in the win over Argentina on Saturday.

The two north London clubs have been keeping tabs on the defender with the view to a potential switch.

But Corriere dello Sport reports there is fresh interest in Pavard from Napoli, who are now considering making a move.

Stuttgart are insisting it will take more than €50m to sell the French youngster this summer.
