Although Arsenal fans were able to celebrate St. Totteringham’s day nice and early this year, with our north London rivals never even looking like they would give us a run for our money in the second half of last season, the spuds did come out on top in the head to head battle.
After beating them in both Premier League games and on the way to lifting the FA cup the previous season, it was disappointing to be held to a draw at home and lose away this time. We could be set for even more pain at the the hands of Tottenham as well, this time in the transfer market.
The Daily Mail is reporting that the two north London clubs could be set for a transfer tussle over the excellent defensive midfielder Geoffrey Kondogbia. The Gunners and AC Milan were believed to be the two clubs most likely to sign the talented young Frenchman, valued at around £25 million, but maybe because neither has done so yet, the Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino has apparently told his transfer team to make a move.
I personally think that Kondogbia is a fantastic player who will only get better with age but I also think that Wenger could get him ahead of our local rivals if he wanted to. The question is, does he want him and is he worth the money that Monaco want?
