North London rivals Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur will reportedly battle it out for the signing of Manchester City youngster Jadon Sancho.

The England Under-17s international has been left out of the Citizens’ squad for their pre-season tour of the United States, despite being tipped to play a part in the club’s summer programme.

Sancho was first linked with a switch to Arsenal earlier this year and, according to The Sun, they are now ready to pounce with an offer for the teen.

It is claimed that Tottenham have also shown an interest, however, having closely monitored the former Watford starlet in recent months.

Sancho turned down a number of Premier League clubs to make the switch to Man City in 2015, but he is said to be keen on a return back south.
