Tottenham are eyeing Morten Hjulmand who is a die-hard Arsenal fan

Tottenham Hotspur are chasing Sporting Lisbon’s Morten Hjulmand who has an Arsenal tattoo, according to UK media outlet Mirror. The 24-year-old is a key player for the Portuguese outfits and has barely missed a game for them.

However, the Danish international is a hardcore Arsenal fan and has the club’s crest tattooed on his left arm. Ange Postecoglou’s hunt for a midfielder continues and should he land Hjulmand, it’d be an awkward dealing for both parties.

The Denmark player grew up idolising Gunners legend Patrick Viera. The star credits his father for the Arsenal fandom. However, these factors seem not to bother the Tottenham gaffer. The Mirror also reported that Spurs sent their scouts to watch him in action last week.

The Lilywhites have been after Scandinavian talents lately. They secured Lucas Bergvall’s signature who is from Sweden. The team is also reported to be eyeing Viktor Djukanovic who plays in Sweden.

Belonging to both parts of London

The North London rivalry is one of the most celebrated rivalries in football. Arsenal and Tottenham have been fighting it out for glory and respect for decades, producing some of the finest games in the history of the competition.

While we have learned about potential Tottenham target Morten Hjulmand’s Arsenal tattoo, let us delve into some players who have had Arsenal and Tottenham links. The list cannot begin with anyone but Harry Kane!

Yes, arguably the biggest player in Tottenham Hotspur’s history is someone who has donned an Arsenal kit first. Harry Kane was released by the Gunners at the age of 12, citing he was ‘too chubby’. The club surely must be regretting their decision to let go of him.

William Gallas is another player who switched sides. He shifted to Spurs from Arsenal after playing four seasons with the Reds and Whites. Emmanuel Adebayor did the same in 2011. Then there is club legend Sol Campbell who moved the other way after spending nine seasons at Spurs.
