Tottenham has threatened to sabotage Arsenal’s January transfer window attempt to get Mikel Arteta for £43 million.

The rivals from North London, Tottenham and Arsenal, are expected to square off in the January transfer window as they compete for Santiago Gimenez’s signing.

With 13 goals for his team, including a hat-trick against Ajax, the Feyenoord striker is tied for first place in the Eredivise goalscoring standings this season.

He did, however, make his Champions League debut on Wednesday in a 3-1 victory over Lazio, scoring a brace to guarantee Feyenoord’s victory in Group E.

Additionally, Mikel Arteta is reportedly considering a January move for Giminez because of his performance.

It’s no secret that Arsenal needs a new No. 9, with Brentford striker Ivan Toney—who is currently serving a ban for breaking betting regulations—strongly being linked to a January transfer to the Emirates.

Though Giminez is a lot more affordable option, the Bees are rumored to be seeking £80 million for their prized possession.

Feyenoord could ask for between €45 million and €50 million for the Mexico international, which would be half of what they would have to pay to get Toney, according to the Italian publication TV Play.

The story also mentions Giminez’s “great interest” in Tottenham, who may try to sabotage Arsenal’s pursuit of the forward.

Ange Postecoglou, who signed Brennan Johnson from Nottingham Forest for an alleged £47.5 million, is still searching for a premier center-forward after selling Harry Kane to Bayern Munich during the summer.

Richarlison, though, has only scored one goal in the Premier League so far this year.

According to the publication, both London clubs are paying close attention to Giménez and are prepared to comply with the requirements made by the Rotterdam club.
