A reporter for Sky Sports has now revealed some big transfer news on Tottenham Hotspur target Andreas Christensen.
The Lowdown: In contact
Should Tottenham sign Christensen?
FC Barcelona seem to be the favourites for his signature at this moment in time, but while he has not put pen to paper on a deal with them, the Lilywhites can still count themselves in the race.
The Latest: No final decision
As per Sky Sports reporter Florian Plettenberg, there is ‘no final decision’ being made by Christensen yet about where he would like to move to, including Barca, although this is of course subject to change:
“Update Christensen: Close sources to the player say that there is still no final decision. So no final “yes” to FC Barcelona at the moment. But this can change at any time.”
The Verdict: Get it done
With Barcelona lurking, the North London club need to make sure that they get this deal done ahead of them.
Currently rated at £31.5m by Transfermarkt, to get a player of Christensen’s quality and calibre on a free is a no-brainer, and of course someone who has played in a back-three under Antonio Conte himself, he would slot straight in at Hotspur Way.
The biggest difficulty THFC may have is persuading the Denmark international to jump to Chelsea’s bitter rivals, but if they can offer a suitable financial package, they should have a chance of landing his services for next season.
