Arsenal and United battling it out over Tevez?

Media reports claim that Arsenal have emerged as the only serious bidder for the signature of Carlos Tevez. The Gunners are also reportedly in the hunt to capture Barcelona's Samuel Eto'o, a move which seems destined to almost certain failure.

With Arsenal having sold Henry to Barca, the Gooners will be hoping that Wenger comes up with a big name signing and Tevez comes into that category. The fee could prove to be a stumbling block for Manchester United. From the Gunners perspective, with Wenger's ability to balance the books a fee of £20m for Tevez which is being bandied around today would be within the Arsenal manager's scope.

As things stand Wenger has acquired Lukasz Fabianski for just £2m, he sold Henry for £16.1m and Jeremie Aliadiere to Middlesbrough, £2m, as ever, it seems the Frenchman is on target to once again be prudent in the transfer market even allowing for the possible capture of Tevez if indeed that move comes off.

Personally, I'm not 100% convinced that Wenger is indeed looking to sign the Argentine, he might go for Huntelaar instead.
