Liverpool fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are feeling outraged given the latest claims emerging from Metro today which claim Tottenham are set to swoop for long-term Reds target Tom Ince.
The young forward has been on the radar of Brendan Rodgers for some time now and a failed January bid has not deterred the manager who is considering another bid in the summer. Now the Metro think that Andre Villas-Boas is set to join the race for the winger in order to provide cover for the injury prone Aaron Lennon.
Lennon has been a pivotal part of the Spurs side this season but is injured just that little bit too much and now AVB wants a back up. Add to this the fact that Lennon has been linked with a move to Inter Milan and AVB is taking no chances.
Given the fact that Paul Ince claimed that his son and player is worth at least £25 million – deluded parent syndrome as one of our punters quipped – this means that Blackpool will be looking for a bidding war in the summer and will only encourage the interest from the North London side in order to ramp the price up.
Are Spurs really in the race to land Ince this summer? Rate this rumour below.
