Napoli 'join Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur in Benjamin Pavard hunt'

Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur face competition from Napoli to sign Stuttgart defender Benjamin Pavard this summer, according to a report.

Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly facing competition from Napoli in the race to sign Stuttgart defender Benjamin Pavard in this summer's transfer window.

Pavard, 22, has impressed for France at the 2018 World Cup, and scored a wonder goal in his country's 4-3 win over Argentina in the last-16 stage of the competition.

Earlier this week, Stuttgart sporting director Michael Reschke insisted that the German club would fight to keep hold of Pavard this summer amid reported interest from the Premier League.

According to Corriere dello Sport, Napoli have now joined Arsenal and Tottenham in the hunt for the full-back, with the Italian giants preparing a move ahead of the 2018-19 campaign.

Pavard, who joined Stuttgart from Lille in 2016, has a contract with his Bundesliga club until the end of the 2020-21 season.
