But the January transfer window presents a unique opportunity for Arsenal to bring in the ideal midfielder to help them further up the pitch.
It’s been rare for players to feature for both Tottenham and Arsenal throughout the years due to the rivalry between the north London clubs.
However, former Spurs star Christian Eriksen is reportedly being made available by Inter Milan just 12 months after he left Tottenham.
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy was desperate to keep the Denmark international, who excelled in his seven years at the club.
Eriksen pushed to join Inter Milan though, however the move hasn’t worked out as he planned.
