Arsenal are set to battle Tottenham for Fulham’s coveted youngster Moussa Dembele, according to a report.
The striker is out of contract at the end of the month at the Championship club and has a substantial offer from the Cottagers to renew his deal.
However, EPSN now claim that Arsenal have entered the race for the 19-year-old as the Gunners look to bolster their attacking options next season.
The 19-year-old smashed in 17 goals in all competitions for Fulham this season and was on the verge of a move to Tottenham in January before the deal collapsed at the 11th hour after he had undergone a medical.
Tottenham have yet to re-establish their interest in the youngster but were expected to be hopeful of securing his signature once his Fulham contract expired.
Dembele is regarded as one of the hottest prospects in the Championship and the Belgian reportedly has the pick of at least seven clubs this summer.
Chelsea, Liverpool , Juventus, Galatasaray and Fenerbahce are all said to be weighing up a deal for Dembele, who could yet decide to remain at Fulham.
Arsenal are searching for reinforcements upfront this summer and have already made a move for Leicester City forward Jamie Vardy.
In other Tottenham transfer news, Napoli have made a move for this Spurs midfielder.
