London rivals are set to go head-to-head for Newcastle United defender Fabian Schar as Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur weigh up potential moves for the Switzerland international
The 27-year-old enjoys a stellar season with the Magpies despite the fact Rafa Benitez’s side failed to impress for the majority of the campaign.
The former Deportivo La Coruna man has booked 18 Premier League appearances so far having also notched three goals in the process.
Schar’s form has alerted both Arsenal and Tottenham who are desperate to strengthen their rearguards ahead of the next season, according to Metro.
Unai Emery is well aware of the fact the Gunners need a reliable centre-back to partner Laurent Koscielny, as both Sokratis and Rob Holding have struggled for consistency this term.
Meanwhile, the Spurs have already started looking for a suitable replacement for the Belgian defender Toby Alderweireld, who could leave the club at the end of the season.
