Transfer news: Tottenham want Sherwood-recommended star, Arsenal agree deal with European side

Tottenham Hotspur, West Ham United and Arsenal feature...

Two of the key breaking transfer stories you need to know...

Spurs want Reid

West Ham face the unwelcome possibility of losing defender Winston Reid to rivals Tottenham Hotspur, report The Telegraph.

Centre-back Reid is a key player for the Hammers, but has allowed his contract to run down and is able to move in the summer on a free transfer.

The defender has previously been linked with Arsenal by The Mirror, but Tottenham's interest is credited to their former head coach.

The Telegraph write: "Former head coach Tim Sherwood first identified Reid as a target last season and Spurs have kept track of him ever since."

They also add that Reid wants a £60,000 per week contract, which is perhaps not unreasonable considering his strong position.

26-year-old Reid has played 20 Premier League games for West Ham this season, scoring once, and is a New Zealand international captain.

Arsenal Bielik development

Arsenal are close to signing Polish teenager Krystian Bielik, but a deal is not done yet report The Mail.

The 17-year-old defensive midfielder has emerged as Arsenal's first realistic target this transfer window, with the club previously locked in negotiations with Legia Warsaw.

The Mail report Arsenal have agreed a fee for Warsaw, but there is serious competition from German side Hamburg, with the paper claiming he has held talks with them.

The paper add that Bielik would go into Arsenal's first team squad, with the youngster already having broken into the Legia Warsaw side.
