’50 Mil??? Ur Joking’ ‘If That’s His Price Spurs Can Have Him’ Fans Want Arsenal To Call Off Pursuit For Defender

Arsenal and Tottenham are both interested in signing Brighton right-back Tariq Lamptey, according to reports in the English media.

The former Chelsea player has been a long-term target for the Gunners, but Spurs have also entered the race for the defender’s signature recently.

Lamptey’s asking price is, though, reportedly £50m and a lot of fans on Twitter believe Arsenal should allow their North London rivals to sign the fullback if he costs that much:


While signing a more attack-minded right-back will be on the club’s agenda, the form of Takehiro Tomiyasu means bringing in competition for the Japanese international is not urgent.

If Lamptey’s price tag is £50m then it kind of makes the decision for the Gunners. The 21-year-old is clearly a very talented young player, who would add quality to Mikel Arteta’s squad, but his valuation is way too high, considering his lack of experience and past injury record.
