Arsenal and Tottenham chasing Fulham striker Berbatov
According to reports, North London rivals Arsenal and Tottenham are both lining up bids for Fulham striker Dimitar Berbatov, who wants to leave Craven Cottage, writes ESPN.
The Bulgarian’s agent has revealed that the player is seeking a move away from Fulham, and Cottagers manager Rene Meulensteen has revealed that he would not stand in Berbatov’s way.
He said: "I will never stand in the way of people's ambitions. He is an immense player that I think any manager would want in his team - especially me. He is an immense player, that's for sure. Any manager in the world would like to have him in their team.’
Berbatov began his Premier League career at Tottenham, spending two years at White Hart Lane between 2006 and 2008, before he moved to Manchester United, where he was part of two title winning sides. After falling out of favour, he left for Fulham in the summer of 2012.
Tottenham are reportedly keen on resigning the player - the Metro reports that the deal could be done for a fee of £3m, but Arsenal are also in the running, as their manager Arsene Wenger looks to increase his attacking options.
