Tottenham Hotspur now also want to sign Leicester City midfielder Youri Tielemans while they weigh a move for Christian Eriksen as fresh transfer news emerges.
The Lowdown: Lilywhites enter Eriksen chase…
Links to their former superstar playmaker have been prevalent in the last few weeks as Tottenham reportedly eye a move to re-sign Eriksen on a free summer deal.
Journalist Gary Jacob, making a Tuesday night claim, says Spurs are weighing a move for Eriksen but, as per his information, he isn’t the only midfielder on their radar.
The Latest: Paratici eyes Tielemans move…
Writing for The Times, he claims that Spurs want to sign Leicester’s star midfielder as they keep tabs on his situation.
He comes as a fellow target alongside Eriksen, with Tielemans about to enter the last year of his contract at the King Power Stadium, potentially putting Paratici and co in a strong position to move.
The Verdict: Good candidate…
While Eriksen on a free could come as the more romantic move, certainly amid supporters at least, you cannot rule out Tielemans as a good candidate to strengthen Antonio Conte’s midfield options.
The 24-year-old, who wants to play in the Champions League as Spurs compete for a place there next season, has been lavished as ‘one of Europe’s top midfielders‘ by Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers this season.
Amid this £25m drop in price, it’s little wonder Spurs are now eyeing a move.
