Bailly wanted by north London duo

North London rivals Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur could reportedly go head-to-head to pursue the services of Eric Bailly from Manchester United this winter.

The Ivory Coast international has experienced another difficult Premier League campaign with just three starts and he is currently behind the likes of Victor Lindelof, Chris Smalling and Phil Jones in the central-defensive pecking order.

Owing to this, he is understood to be unsettled by the situation and according to The Record, both Arsenal and Spurs could offer a Premier League lifeline at the turn of the year.

Still, United remain reluctant to part ways with the central defender while the potential sale to a direct Premier League rival remains another concern for them ahead of the winter transfer window.

Aside from Bailly, Marcos Rojo and Phil Jones have been regularly tipped to make way from Old Trafford with the latter also being a probable target for Arsenal and Spurs.
