Arsenal and Tottenham are battling for signature of England international

Arsenal came close to returning to the Champions League at the end of the just-concluded season before missing out on it.

The Gunners made progress with a fifth-place finish considering that they ended the previous campaign without European football.

Mikel Arteta’s men will now target doing much better in 2022/2023 and it starts from bolstering their squad in this transfer window.

Many players are on their radar now, and HITC says one of them is James Ward-Prowse.

The England international plays for Southampton, where he has become a dead-ball specialist and he is one of the players that has kept them in the Premier League.

The report adds that Tottenham also has an interest in him, which means both north London sides will go head to head for his signature.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Ward-Prowse is one of the best dead-ball specialists in Europe, and Arsenal has not had one player with such ability in a long-time.

If he is doing so well at a Southampton side that isn’t competing close to the top of the Premier League table, he will probably do much better at the Emirates.

However, he will not come cheap, and The Saints will look for the most money they can get now that another club wants him as well.

  1. But a reality check should easily show anyone who has anormal or above IQ, THAT THIS IS JUSY ANOTHR FALSE RUMOUR.
    It is widely acepted that we are aftrer Jesus and Teiemans as prime targets. PLUS another top special striker,also a DM , cover at full back and guess what, Old Stan might be made of money but he hopes to keep a great deal of it and not give it all to good ol’ MA to buy just about every daft rumour floating around this far too gullible site.

    That is WHY I am a realist !

    Judging from the posts above this one, I AM THE ONLY REALIST ON THIS THREAD , SO FAR. Sigh!

  2. Likely another Summer of quantity over quality, and there’s no pressure really for top 4. Expectations successfully lowered for too many, top 6 is looking like our new top 4.

    Roll out the “young squad” and “process” propaganda, hopefully enough fans have forgotten about the former top 4 standard and expectation.

    Target players who are happy with high wages, don’t aim too high regarding top players whose ambitions include CL football.

  3. A fine player, JWP but if S’ton hoodwinked us to paying over the top for average players in the past, this lad will be priced out of our reach. Declan Rice & JWP are so under rated, hope they make it to a big club and show their potential. We are so obsessed with continental mediocre players that we fail to recognise local talent. Pep tutored Foden, Mikel tutored Saka & ESR. These lads are lucky because they play for great clubs with great managers. Pity the lesser known players playing for lesser clubs/managers
