Tottenham lost ground in the race for Champions League qualification on Saturday, as they were held to a 0-0 draw by Brentford. 

Antonio Conte’s side were left frustrated by the Bees, and with Arsenal having beaten Manchester United in the day’s early kick off, Spurs now sit fifth.

With both sides having played 33 games and with just two points separating them, the likelihood is that the north London derby in May will go a long way towards deciding which side secures the fourth place.

Qualification for Europe’s top club competition could make or break both club’s season, and will likely be beneficial going into the summer transfer window.

Spurs are hopeful of qualification, and manager Antonio Conte is already plotting a move for a Champions League star.

According to The Express, the Italian is spearheading a move for former Arsenal winger Serge Gnabry.

The German is currently plying his trade with Bayern Munich, and the winger scored in their 3-1 victory over Borussia Dortmund on Saturday, a result that secured their tenth consecutive Bundesliga title.

Now, though, it appears that the winger is being lined up for a Premier League return, having left north London in 2016.

The German initially joined Werder Bremen, and ended up in Munich via a brief spell with Hoffenheim.

Conte is keen to bring the 26-year-old back to the capital, though, as he looks to bolster his attacking options ahead of next season.

The German’s contract is set to expire next summer, meaning Bayern could be tempted to cash in on him at the end of this season, if he decides not to extend his stay with the club.

Gnabry has been in sensational form over the last few seasons, scoring 35 Bundesliga goals over since the start of the 2019/20 campaign.

He has also won a Champions League, four Bundesliga titles, two German cups, and a FIFA Club World Cup, as well as the UEFA Super Cup.

The winger, who was part of the Arsenal squad that won the FA Cup in both 2014 and 2015, scored four goals against Spurs during Bayern’s 7-2 humiliation of the London side in the Champions League back in 2019.
