Leicester

Spurs and Liverpool head to head in battle to land classy 13 goal playmaker

Josip Ilicic

With the proverbial silly season just around the corner, the Transfer Tavern is full of debate amongst our locals as they wax poetic over potential new arrivals at their respective clubs. 

Every so often, the locals are in harmony as they quiz each other about certain players and the like, though the mood can quickly sour when the notion of a player getting between two clubs become apparent.

Well, that’s exactly what happened today when reports from Tuttosport claimed both Spurs and Liverpool will battle Leicester City in the race to land Fiorentina playmaker Josip Ilic.

The Slovenian midfielder will reportedly be made available by La Viola this summer as they aim to raise funds for their own spending spree over the next few months.

The 28-year old moved to Tuscany from Palermo three years ago and has since further established himself as one of the most creative midfielders plying his trade in Serie A.

He notched an impressive 13 goals and recorded a further 6 assists last term, attracting the watchful eyes of Premier League suitors it seems.

Who will finish higher next season, Liverpool or Spurs?
