Arsenal preparing to hijack Tottenham Hotspur’s move for Victor Nelsson

According to the Sun, Arsenal are set to deliver a blow to Tottenham’s transfer plans as they prepare to swoop in for Victor Nelsson, the Danish defender from Galatasaray who was believed to be Ange Postecoglou’s first target since taking charge of the North London club.

Postecoglou, the former Celtic head coach, recently assumed the managerial reins at Tottenham Hotspur in the wake of a lacklustre season that saw the Lilywhites finish a disappointing eighth in the Premier League standings.

Consequently, they missed out on the opportunity to compete in European competitions next season. To exacerbate matters, the future of Tottenham’s star striker Harry Kane is far from certain.

Given the circumstances, Postecoglou faces an immense challenge to rejuvenate Tottenham and restore them to their former glories. In light of this, he had reportedly identified Victor Nelsson as a key addition to the squad.

The 24-year-old Danish centre-back has showcased his talent during his two-year stint at Galatasaray, making 80 appearances for the Turkish giants since his move from Copenhagen. Nelsson’s influence played an integral role in Galatasaray securing their first league title in four years last month.

Tottenham’s need for central defenders has become more pressing as Davinson Sanchez appears destined to depart the club. Nelsson, with a release clause of £21.5 million, emerged as an attractive prospect due to his affordability.

However, recent developments suggest that Arsenal are poised to disrupt Tottenham’s plans. Mikel Arteta’s side is actively seeking to bolster their squad, targeting a range of players including Nelsson.

As the two North London rivals vie for Nelsson’s signature, the stage is set for a fierce battle between the clubs off the field, mirroring the intensity witnessed on matchdays. Tottenham, under their new manager, will need to act swiftly and decisively to fend off Arsenal’s advances if they are to secure the services of the highly-rated Danish defender.
