Tottenham, Arsenal eye Real Betis defender Aissa Mandi

Premier League clubs Tottenham and Arsenal are both interested in signing Real Betis defender Aissa Mandi, report El Desmarque.

The 27-year-old joined Los Verdiblancos in 2016 from Reims and has made 97 first-team appearances in the time period since, including 34 outings this season.

Mandi is primarily a right-sided central defender and has played in that position in part of a Betis three-man defence for the majority of the campaign.

The one potential stumbling block of any deal, the report concludes, is the Algerian international’s €30m release clause at Betis.
