Arsenal and Tottenham do battle for right-backs in the summer

North-London rivals Arsenal and Tottenham went head to head for a pair of right-backs in the summer, with both sides needing to strengthen that position as a matter of urgency.

And, surprisingly, it was the heavily-linked Tottenham target Takehiro Tomiyasu who ended up at Arsenal come the end of the window, while Spurs opted for the more high-profile signing of Emerson Royal from Barcelona.

And, judging by social media during the first leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final between Tottenham and Chelsea, the rivals came to a rare agreement on who got the better end of the deal.

While this could prove to be a different story by the end of the season, nonetheless both sides feel as though they need further reinforcement in that position, and could again rival each other in the summer window.

Tariq Lamptey heading to north London?

The player thought to be in demand on both sides of north London? Brighton defender Tariq Lamptey.

The former Chelsea academy graduate has impressed since leaving Stamford Bridge and making the move to Sussex, where he has excelled during limited gametime.

Beset by injuries last campaign, he has returned to fitness and form since, and provides plenty of raw pace and skill to Brighton’s attacks.

And now, as per the Sun, Spurs and Arsenal are set to go head to head for his signature this summer, with a 50 million pound price point being mooted.

Would Lamptey improve both sides, or is it a case of a player that has already outgrown the north London sides, and needs an even bigger challenge?
