Tottenham Hotspur and Aston Villa are already battling each other over Leeds United midfielder Kalvin Phillips, according to The Mirror, and a report in The Daily Mail today has claimed that the two clubs are interested in signing Martin Dubravka from Newcastle United as well.

It has been reported by The Daily Mail that Tottenham, Villa, Manchester United, AS Monaco and FC Porto all want to secure the services of the 30-year-old Slovakia international goalkeeper.

 

The 30-year-old is reported to be unsettled at the Magpies following the departure of Rafael Benitez from St. James’ Park this summer.

The report has also claimed that Dubravka would prefer to stay in the Premier League.

Interesting duel

It is quite interesting that Villa and Tottenham are reportedly looking at same players.

While Tottenham regularly finish in the top four of the Premier League and reached the final of the Champions League last season, Villa have only just got promoted from the Championship.

The Villans’ reported interest in Phillips and Dubravka and them battling Tottenham for the duo underlines their ambition.
