Spurs scrapping it out with Arsenal for Leicester’s Ben Chilwell
It has been reported that Tottenham Hotspur has joined the race to sign promising defender, Ben Chilwell. The player has attracted strong interest from their North London Rivals, Arsenal who had a bid of £3 million knocked back in the summer have come back with a new offer. The left-back has been on their radar after playing against the Gunners in the FA Cup last season.
It is not the first time that the two top North London teams have competed head to head for a player, and it won`t be the last. The Gunners have the slight edge in signing the Leicester starlet, due to showing interest for a long time. Spurs though are catching their rivals up each year and can now offer young footballers the best facilities in the UK along with a manager that trusts in young English footballers.
Spurs have recently played Leicester three times in a matter of days and during this time they were able to take a closer look at Chilwell. The defender played in both FA Cup ties and had been part of the reason Leicester are sitting top of the League. Before the match, the best sports betting system had Spurs the huge favorites. They managed to be victorious in the end, but it took a replay for them to get through to the next round. The manager and scouting team were impressed with what they saw which is why they have now solid interest.
It has been a breakthrough season for the young England left back. He has managed to break into the international under 21`s team and has a slim chance of making the Euro`s men’s squad. If you use sports betting strategies, it would be worth including the player in your formula. So far the defender has played excellently and looks like he has a bright future ahead.
Leicester City is wanting to try to keep hold of their young star player. They are now attempting to extend his current contract by offering him a new and improved deal. If they can tie him down to a longer contract, they will be able to demand a higher transfer fee if they do sell. With the team sitting at the top of the Premier League, now is the best time of them being able to talk the defender into extending his time at the King Power Stadium.
It will seem strange to many that Spurs are in the market for another young left back. At present, they have both Ben Davies and Danny Rose competing for the spot. They both have represented their countries and are still young with room to improve.
Tottenham has been very successful recently in securing the best young British talent around. With the manager putting his faith in youngsters, it is helping attract young players as they feel they will get the chance to play at the highest level. Giving youth a chance is a sports betting strategy that is paying off for Spurs.
The best sports betting systems still have Arsenal the favorites to finish as the top team in North London this year. If Spurs manage to improve slightly over the second half, it is going to go down to the wire this season.
