Tottenham could be set to muscle in on Arsenal’s move for Winston Reid, according to reports.

The Gunners have been hotly-tipped to make a bid for the West Ham defender, whose contract expires in the summer, during this month’s transfer window.

As the January window rolls on, it looks increasingly unlikely Arsenal will be prepared to meet the Hammers’ valuation to seal a deal for the 26-year-old.

But their stalling over a fee could see Arsene Wenger lose out at the end of the season, when Reid will be available on a free transfer – naturally attracting wider attention.
