Fabrizio Romano now says CL club have made an 'official bid' for £52m Arsenal and Tottenham target

Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur will both be hoping to cement their current positions in the Premier League during the upcoming transfer window.

With the World Cup giving clubs a month to concentrate on matters off the field, potential transfer targets are being closely monitored.

An update from reputable journalist Fabrizio Romano may have delivered some bad news to the north London clubs.

Arsenal and Spurs have both been concentrating on signing some of the world’s finest young talent.

Antonio Conte meanwhile raided Serie A to sign Destiny Udogie, and signed Djed Spence from Middlesbrough.

However, they’ve both been closely watching one of the most exciting wonderkids in the world.

Brazilian teenager Endrick has been subject to interest from both Arsenal and Tottenham already.

The Gunners have been scouting him for nearly a year, while Brazilian journalist Jorge Nicola believes Tottenham want to sign him.

Romano now believes that PSG have made an official bid to sign Endrick.

PSG make bid to sign Endrick

Speaking on his YouTube channel, Romano gave an update on the 16-year-old striker: “I’ve spoken about Endrick multiple times because he’s one of the best talents in the world.

“This boy has something special, he’s a striker, he’s scoring goals, he has some leadership, and so Endrick will be a top player in the future.

“This is why the best clubs in Europe are fighting to sign him.

“There are three club as front runners [to sign Endrick], Real Madrid, Chelsea and PSG.

“Finally, there is the first official proposal for Endrick. The only club to make an official bid is Paris Saint-Germain.

“It’s still not agreed with the player, it’s absolutely open.

“Palmeiras want a €60m [£52m] package because the release clause is €60m, but in this case keep an eye on the package including bonuses and add-ons.”

Despite Arsenal and Spurs not being named by Romano, they’ll definitely be keeping a close eye on the young Brazilian’s future.

PSG making a bid for Endrick doesn’t necessarily spell the end of the north London clubs hopes of signing him.

They both have Brazilian contingents that could help persuade the teenager to head to north London instead.

The £52m price tag may not be enough to dissuade Mikel Arteta or Conte to ask the club to try and make the move happen.
