Tottenham Hotspur, and by extension sporting director Fabio Paratici, are ‘at the window’ to sign Real Madrid forward Marco Asensio, according to reports.
The Lowdown: Spurs eyeing more moves?
Spurs manager Antonio Conte could yet see even more signings at the Premier League club after a flurry of transfer activity over the summer so far.
Ivan Perisic, Fraser Forster, Yves Bissouma, Richarlison, Clement Lenglet (loan) and Djed Spence have all linked up with the Italian at Hotspur Way, but the Lilywhites apparently remain in the market for a creator.
The Latest: Asensio targeted…
According to reports from Italy, it now appears that the north Londoners are eyeing a move for Asensio amid Real Madrid’s desperation to offload the 26-year-old.
Indeed, according to Calciomercato Web, Spurs and Paratici are ‘at the window’ to sign the Spaniard as they enter contention for his signature alongside Chelsea and AC Milan.
It is also believed that the Galacticos could offer a discount on his mooted €40m (£34m) asking price.
The Verdict: Advance?
Despite things going quiet since then, Asensio could still offer Spurs some real quality, with pundit Kevin Campbell explaining that the Spaniard has been an ‘excellent’ squad player for Los Blancos.
Who should Tottenham sign after Spence?
As we’ve seen with both Dejan Kulusevski and Rodrigo Bentancur from Juventus, the £138,000-per-week attacker could be transformed under Conte at Tottenham, but it remains to be seen whether the north London club will push their reported interest further.
