Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly ready to rival Arsenal in the race to sign Reims defender Axel Disasi later in 2020.

Reims defender Axel Disasi has reportedly emerged as a potential transfer target for Tottenham Hotspur.

Disasi has just enjoyed the most productive year of his career, helping Reims put together the best defensive record in Ligue 1 on their way to sixth position in the table.

However, the form of the 22-year-old has inevitably led to interest from elsewhere, including from Arsenal who are now admirers of the centre-back.

According to RMC Sport, the Gunners will face competition from their North London rivals during the next window.

With Jan Vertonghen expected to depart Spurs on a free transfer, Jose Mourinho must find a replacement for the Belgium international.

Although Reims would prefer to keep Disasi, the player has just over a year remaining on his contract, leaving it likely that they will attempt to recoup a significant fee.
