Arsenal could wreck Tottenham transfer plans following Conte scouting mission

Arsenal could wreck Tottenham transfer plans following Conte scouting mission

Arsenal is considering a move for Club Brugge forward Ferran Jutgla, who Tottenham is said to have kept an eye on during a failed scouting mission earlier this season.

So far this season, he has six goals and three assists in ten appearances.

Despite the fact that Mikel Arteta already has Gabriel Jesus and Eddie Nketiah as striker options, the Spaniard appears eager to add to his forward ranks.

Since arriving at the Emirates Stadium, Jesus has been a revelation, scoring five goals in eight appearances and widely regarded as one of the summer’s best signings.

Given Arsenal’s recent form, the north London club can compete in all competitions this season, and Arteta will be hoping that this trend continues in the coming seasons. 

According to Media Foot, the Gunners are set to compete with Atletico Madrid for Jutgla’s signature.

The 23-year-old only arrived in Brugge this summer, signing for £4.5 million from Barca Atletic, but his impressive start to life in the Belgian Pro League will undoubtedly increase his value.

Tottenham have also been linked with Jutgla this season, with O Jogo reporting that scouts were present to watch the Spaniard perform against FC Porto.

Those in attendance, however, did not come to the Estadio Do Dragao to watch the striker; instead, they came to watch Porto stars.

Those players, however, fell short in a 4-0 loss to Brugge, with Jutgla scoring from the penalty spot and assisting another in the emphatic Champions League victory.

Atletico Madrid are also thought to be keeping an eye on the former Barcelona star’s progress, though that may change if they can sign Antoine Griezmann.
