Manchester United defender Eric Bailly is wanted by both Arsenal and Tottenham for a January transfer.

Arsenal too are also keen on Bailly and now the pair are set to go head-to-head when the transfer window reopens.

Bailly cost United £30million when he joined from Villarreal in 2016, and they almost certainly won't ask for any less from their Premier League rivals.
