Tottenham and Arsenal have been dealt a serious blow in their hopes to sign IFK Goteborg goalkeeper Pontus Dahlberg in the January transfer window, according to reports from Fotball Direkt.
Tottenham and Arsenal are both reportedly interested in signing Dahlberg but as a blow to the North London duo, it has now emerged that Napoli have held talks with the player’s agent earlier this month regarding a potential transfer.
It was reported earlier this month claiming that Napoli had made an official enquiry for the young goalkeeper and now the club is already having concrete talks with the player’s agent, which has led many to speculate about an imminent move for Dahlberg.
Arsenal and Tottenham have been shocked by this revelation as the North London clubs were also keenly interested in the young goalkeeper.
Nonetheless, the news does not seem to have deterred the Premier League giants and they are believed to be going to make an approach anyway for the 18-year-old in their desperate attempt to land the Dahlberg ahead of Napoli.
