Arsenal could beat Tottenham Hotspur to the signing of Josko Gvardiol

It looks like Tottenham Hotspur could miss out on Josko Gvardiol as city rivals Arsenal may beat us to the signing of the 20-year-old, according to The Boot Room (h/t Mirror).

The Croatian has amassed interest from various clubs around Europe after impressing at RB Leipzig in his debut season. Gvardiol is just another name in a long list that the North London rivals have been linked with.

Since Spurs have put their foot off the gas for the time being in the pursuit of the 20-year-old, Arsenal are ready to swoop in for the talented youngster. Should it come to pass, we might come to regret the decision in the future.

After impressing with Dinamo Zagreb in Croatia’s first tier, Leipzig went ahead and brought Gvardiol to the Bundesliga. He quickly established himself as a key member of the German club, featuring in 46 games for the Red Bulls.

The 20-year-old’s performances have merited the interest big European teams have been showing in him. At such a young age, the Croatian has also become a key member for Zlatko Dalic on the national side.

Fans who’ve seen him play regularly will know Gvardiol is good with the ball at his feet, composed in possession and versatile. The Croatian has a massive ceiling and has the ability to make a name for himself in world football.

Tottenham have a good set of centre-backs currently in the squad. Cristian Romero looks to be an astute signing. Looking at the Argentinian’s performances last season, he seemed worth every penny we paid.

Eric Dier was the figurehead in defence for us the previous season. The England international was the vocal organiser at the back. Ben Davies and Davinson Sanchez were the other players Conte relied on.

What Gvardiol offers is quality and longevity in a vital position. If Spurs were to reignite their interest once again, fans wouldn’t mind having the 20-year-old potentially being the next leader in our backline.
