Tottenham interested in signing Man United defender who has fall short at the club

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino is interested in signing Eric Bailly from Manchester United to the north London club when the transfer window reopen in January, as claimed by Daily Star.

Tottenham will have to go head to head with North London rivals Arsenal who are believed to be interested in signing the outcast Man Utd defender.

Bailly could be on his way out of Old Trafford in January and look for more playing time elsewhere after appearing to have been frozen out by United boss Jose Mourinho.

So far in the season the Ivory Coast defender has started just five games under Mourinho and would likely get more playing time at either London club.

Tottenham Hotspur currently have only Juan Foyth as a back up centre-back, and also they are without Jan Vertonghen who has been out for a while.

The defender (Bailly) was removed before the break in the 3-2 victory over Newcastle, a match in which midfielder Paul Pogba completed the 90 minutes at centre back.

But if any move for him is going happen, United will probably want to recover most of their £30m which they splash on the two seasons ago. But be that as it may, Spurs will continue to be monitoring his situation at Old Trafford.

Why Arsenal FC want Eric Bailly

Arsenal FC have maintained their success stand so far in the EPL this season after suffering two defeats at the start of the season.

The Gunners could, however, be headed for some challenges in their coming matches.

This is because the Unai Emery led squad will be without two of their key defenders for some time next year.

The players involved are Rob Holding, who is out for the season with a knee injury and Shkodran Mustafi is battling with a hamstring problem which the Gunners are assessing.

This latest development is a big blow on the team as they hope to at least finish in the top four on the EPL table so as to qualify for the next Uefa Champions League.

Arsenal are now linked with moves to sign Man Utd defender and Ivory Coast international, Eric Bailey.

The report hinted that Arsenal can make a move for him the January transfer window.

However, they will face stiff competition from Tottenham Hotspur, who are equally interested in Eric Bailey.

Man Utd have disclosed the interest to sell the Ivorian defender and they have placed his transfer fee at the sum of £30 million.

This is according to the report from popular media portal ESPN.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has had a long-running feud with Pogba dating back to last season.

Pogba, 25, joined the Red Devils from Juventus in a then world record fee of £89m in 2016.

The 2018 World Cup winner had earlier left Old Trafford for Italy on a free transfer four years earlier though the Old Lady paid a sizeable compensation fee for him since he is a graduate of the Manchester United Academy.
