A transfer story concerning Tottenham Hotspur has reached us in the Football Transfer Tavern, courtesy of sources at talkSPORT
It has emerged the North London club are set for a battle with the likes of AC Milan, Juventus and Paris Saint Germain to clinch the signing of Sochaux defender Sebastien Corchia.
Corchia has been earning rave reviews for his performances in France, and Spurs have had their eye on him for some time. Although now it appears they are not the only ones, and even German giants Bayern Munich have expressed an interest in the 22-year-old.
Andre Villas-Boas is already thinking ahead to next season after an impressive debut campaign at White Hart Lane. Sunday’s victory over Arsenal in the Premier League means his side are red hot favourites to finish above their North London rivals for the first time since 1996, whilst in doing so securing Champions League football.
AVB is therefore planning to build a squad capable of challenging Europe’s elite next season, and see’s Corchia as a defender who can help him do just that.
A deal will not be straightforward however, with reports in France claiming there is set to be a bidding war for Corchia’s signature during the summer as Milan, Juventus and PSG have also entered the race for his signature.
Sochaux will be looking for at least £8 million for their star defender, meaning Tottenham will have to move fast if they are to bring the talented full back to White Hart Lane next season.
Will we see Corchia in the Lilywhite shirt of Spurs next season? Rate this rumour below.
