Football: Rivals vie for Roque.

Byline: By STEVE STAMMERS

ARSENAL and Manchester United are set to go head-to-head in the battle to sign Roque Santa Cruz.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is fearful of losing Emmanuel Adebayor, with AC Milan believing they will capture the Togo forward this summer.

Wenger has ordered his scouting staff to present a list of potential replacements and Santa Cruz is at the top of their list. But any hope of a simple deal to recruit Blackburn's Paraguay striker faces a threat from Old Trafford.

Despite winning a Premier League-Champions League double, United boss Sir Alex Ferguson wants a powerful striker - and Santa Cruz would carry a more reasonable fee than Spurs' pounds 30m-rated Dimitar Berbatov.
