Spurs ahead of Arsenal in strike star transfer tussle

Tottenham are leading Arsenal in the race for Serbian starlet Luka Jovic, according to reports from talkSPORT.

The 17-year-old has emerged as one of the most sought-after youngsters in European football, with his 10 goals in 32 outings for Red Star Belgrade having gained attention from across the continent.

Arsenal have been linked with the teenager, but talkSPORT, citing CalcioMercatoWeb, claim that local rivals Spurs are currently leading the race for him.

The Lilywhites are understood to be extremely interested in Jovic, with the club having been assessing his talents for a while.

Although the Gunners can offer the Eastern European sensation Champions League football, a greater chance of first-team action at White Hart Lane may appeal to him, with Tottenham’s striking ranks currently low in terms of numbers.

Jovic has represented Serbia’s U-19 side on seven occasions, scoring four goals in the process, and is being tipped to break into the senior side before long.
