Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are both interested in signing Monaco full-back Djibril Sidibe in the summer, according to reports in France.

L’Equipe – as quoted by Sky Sports – are reporting that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is interested in signing the right-back who was ever-present in Monaco’s run to the Champions League semi-final.

Tottenham have also been linked with a move to sign Monaco’s exciting defender Sidibe after the 24-year-old helped the Ligue 1 side reach the Champions League semi-finals.

Spurs could sell Kyle Walker in the summer which would open up a spot at right-back after the England international reportedly fell out with manager Mauricio Pochettino during the 2016-17 campaign.

Sidibe has scored two goals and has made five assists in 29 appearances in Ligue 1 this term to help Monaco win the French top-flight crown ahead of cash-rich Paris Saint-Germain.
