Tottenham Hotspur appear to be in the process of hijacking Arsenal's proposed deal for Saint-Etienne talent William Saliba after it has been reported the 2019 Champions League finalists have trumped their north London rivals and are set to finalise their own agreement.

The claims from RMC are backed up by the highly respected David Ornstein, with the BBC journalist confirming Spurs "interest" via his twitter account.

Saint-Etienne officials are expected to discuss the deal over the weekend.

The Gunners were set to secure a 30m euro (£27m) deal for the 18-year-old that was to see him loaned back to the Ligue 1 club next season.

However, as reported by RMC Sport, Tottenham are now ahead of Arsenal in the battle to sign the France Under-20 worldwide.

Also Friday, there was a 4.9-magnitude natural disaster in Ridgecrest, CA., and a small 2.5-magnitude quake in Mexico City. Authorities have not issued any tsunami warnings or advisories, and no serious injuries or damage has been reported yet.

Arsenal had delved deep in negotiations for the €30m rated defender but Saint-Étienne were unable to accept the payment structure suggested by Arsenal. "Could well be that Spurs have now hi-jacked it at the last minute".

The news will come as a bitter blow to Gunners fans who are desperate to see their club add to their squad, with young Brazilian forward Gabriel Martinelli their only current acquisition so far this summer.

Spurs may well be preparing for life without Toby Alderweireld.

Spurs, on the other hand, have reportedly offered to pay the majority of the transfer fee upright with the option to loan the defender back for a season.
