Arsenal and Tottenham are among the clubs battling to sign Roma striker Bojan Krkic, according to talkSPORT.

The Spanish striker came through the youth ranks at Barcelona and was expected to go on to become a first team regular at the Nou Camp after making his debut in 2007. Despite going on to make 104 appearances and scoring 24 goals for the Catalans, things didn’t work out for him at Barca and he was sold to Roma last summer.

However, Krkic has endured a difficult first season in Serie A, scoring just 7 goals in 33 games, and he has been linked with another move this summer.

talkSPORT claim north London rivals Arsenal and Tottenham are interested in signing the 21-year-old, but could face competition from AC Milan, Valencia and Atletico Madrid.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is still keeping an eye out for another striker following the departure of Robin van Perise, despite bringing in Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud this summer.

Spurs coach Andre Villas-Boas is also on the look-out for striking reinforcements as he only has two recognized senior strikers, namely Jermaine Defoe and Emmanuel Adebayor, on the books at White Hart Lane.

    ARSENAL
    No doubt that a catalan barcelona based players always find theirselvs very mutch settled at highbury or the emirates. Bojan is a striker who poses the qualities of henry where tottenham made a mistake by sacking harry and i’ll bet that their glory days are over. And also Podolski is not a complete striker or is not someone with great positioning, he’s a kind of winger who has good finishing and can launch missiles directed goalwards. In a word striking is his choice. On the other hand giroud is more like an aerial player. And there is no one else. So bojan must be bought to arsenal

    yeah then he can leave Gonnas for a Manchester club when he’s made a name for himself.

    looks like i forgot something
    If he comes to arsenal and signs a four year deal and year by year gets on the path of becoming a legend, In the third year of his contract at the age of 24 with only a year left on that FC BARCELONA will do something like they did with fabregas and we will lose him.
    It all looks scripted doesn’t it?

    Yeah buh bojan could help arsenal win cups and that’s the problem we’re not winning cups. That’s why most our best players left arsenal however if we start winning cups who is going to want to leave, more players are going to want to join
