Manchester United and Tottenham look set to battle for Torino captain Kamil Glik this summer, according to Italian media outlet Tuttosport.

The 27-year-old centre-back is a powerful defender and is very strong in the air. Louis Van Gaal and Mauricio Pochettino will both likely be in the market for a new defender this summer and the Premier League rivals look set to battle for the signature of Glik.

He has been with Torino for four years and has captained the side for the past two seasons. Torino are desperate to keep the Polish international, who signed a new three-year contract last May, but interest from Spurs and United could prove too much of a lure for the player.

Glik, who scored against England in a World Cup qualifier in October 2012, is valued at £7 million by transfermarkt.co.uk and would be a interesting acquisition if either club opts to make the move.

He has scored an impressive seven goals in 29 Serie A appearances this season and is a real threat from set-pieces.

The Torino fans have a strong connection with Glik and would not want to see their leader depart but their loss could be Spurs or United’s gain in the coming months.

Would Kamil Glik be a good signing for Tottenham or Manchester United? Do they need another centre-back?
