Roberts Rates Rohit

Both Arsenal and Spurs are expected to run the rule over the classy defender when Nepal face Jordan in the World Cup 2014 qualifier next week.

Arsenal will battle north London rivals Tottenham for Nepalese teenager Rohit Chand. The 18-year-old, who plays for Indian First Division side Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) SC, is regarded as one of the hottest prospects in Asian football and is desparate to make the big time in European football.

Former Spurs skipper Graham Roberts, who is the current coach of Nepal, is in no doubt Chand is destined for the very top.

He said: "Rohit is by far the best centre-half I have ever coached. He is an extreme talent who will play at the highest level."
