Three reasons Southampton should hijack Tottenham and Chelsea’s bid to sign Arp

According to reports in the Daily Mail, Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea are among the top European clubs considering making a move for Hamburg starlet Jann-Fiete Arp, who has been described as ‘the German Harry Kane’ by football.london.

The 17-year-old striker has made his first-team breakthrough for the Bundesliga outfit this term following some impressive form for the U19 side and the Germany U17s, and he has already made a huge impression.

The Daily Mail says that while Chelsea have scouted the young centre-forward, Spurs have also been keeping a keen eye on his progress and the German club may well be concerned about losing him with his current contract due to run out in 2019.

Meanwhile, Southampton have made a disappointing start to the Premier League campaign and having scored just nine goals in 11 top flight games, manager Mauricio Pellegrino is likely to look to strengthen his attack in the January transfer window and it could be a smart decision to target the teenager.
