​Arsenal are maintaining tabs on the future of Toby Alderweireld with the Belgian’s future uncertain due to a release clause in the Tottenham star’s contract.

Unai Emery is eager to bolster his defence in the summer time following seeing his side fail to retain a clean sheet on the road in the Premier League this season.

As a outcome, ​The Sun claims the Gunners’ focus has turned towards an audacious swoop for Alderweireld, who could be offered for a reduce cost deal of £25m, due to a clause in the 30-year-old’s contract extension.

No official approaches have been produced as of yet but terms of his release clause can be met anytime up until two weeks just before the transfer deadline. As ​Arsenal draw up a list of targets for the summer time, the Belgian’s name has been talked about – in spite of the club supposedly obtaining just £40m to invest if they do not obtain ​Champions League football.

​Spurs’ bitter rivals are not the only club interested in the centre half, with ​Manchester United and Manchester City both linked to the former Atletico Madrid star.

With interested parties circling, Spurs’ could appear to agree fresh terms with Alderweireld, in hopes of wiping out the clause that provides their European rivals a opportunity of signing the player.

It would be a surprise move on Arsenal’s component to attempt and sway the defender to the other side of north London, with the transfer obtaining an air of Sol Campbell about it, who infamously produced the move across the capital in 2001.

At present, each rivals are vying for a major 4 spot in the ​Premier League, with Spurs at present in third following their win more than Huddersfield, although the Gunners will appear to climb back into the Champions League spots with victory more than Watford on Monday.
