Tottenham are interested in signing Hoffenheim star Nadiem Amiri but could face competition from Arsenal, according to reports in Germany.

The 22-year-old attacking midfielder has scored eight goals provided 11 assists in 93 Bundesliga appearances for Hoffenheim, a large number of games for a player so young.

His current contract expires in the summer of 2020, and German outlet Sport Bild claims Amiri could be on the move next summer.

It is believed Spurs and Arsenal are both keen to bring him to north London by triggering his release clause, which is apparently valued at £15.1 million.

Amiri, who has represented Germany at Under-21 level on 17 occasions, can play in a number of midfield roles, something that is bound to appeal to Mauricio Pochettino.

The Tottenham manager likes versatile players and could do with another central attacking midfielder to provide competition for the likes of Harry Winks and Christian Eriksen.

His low price is likely to tempt Spurs if they are genuinely interested.

Amiri’s future location may depend on whether the Londoners are playing in the Champions League next season.
