Arsenal and Tottenham are going head-to-head for Chelsea contract rebel Willian.
The Telegraph says the Premier League rivals are facing a scenario where they will only sign players on free transfers, loans or in swap deals.
Both clubs are planning for a summer without spending any money as the financial impact of the coronavirus suspension begins to bite.
The north London rivals face the prospect of raising money by selling off star assets like Harry Kane or Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Willian’s Stamford Bridge future has been the subject of intense speculation, with his current deal set to run out at the end of June.
But with the Premier League likely to restart next month, a short-term deal is set to be agreed between both parties so Willian can play the rest of the season, which is likely to stretch into July and August.
