Speaking in a football.london Q&A, reliable journalist Alasdair Gold has made a teasing Tottenham transfer claim involving both Marcel Sabitzer and more recent target Joachim Andersen.
The Lowdown: Sabitzer and Andersen on the radar
Sabitzer has been on Tottenham’s radar for quite some time, with interest in the Austrian star first appearing as far back as last November. Indeed, Sport Bild (via Sport Witness) went as far as to say that Tottenham want to sign the midfielder ‘above everyone’.
Gold then lifted the lid on Spurs’ relatively new interest in Lyon defender Andersen, saying in late March that he is on the list of targets as the Lilywhites hunt for a ‘leader’ at the back (football.london).
The Latest: Gold makes teasing transfer claim
Speaking in a Q&A, the Spurs reporter has provided his latest information on chairman Daniel Levy’s interest in both Andersen and Sabitzer, making a rather teasing claim.
Indeed, despite Tottenham needing to operate with a sell-to-buy policy this summer due to the impact of the global pandemic, Gold stated that the club will try to compete for both of the players’ signatures.
“I do believe they will try to compete for both players’ signatures this summer,” he explained to football.london.
“Although of course, the new manager may come in and not want them which could change plans rather rapidly. They’re certainly players the club have watched for a number of seasons.”
The Verdict: Promising update…
There is one thing which has been made evident by Tottenham’s 2020/21 campaign – a major rebuild of the playing squad is needed.
Spurs’ defence and lack of creativity are often pointed out as big issues which need to be addressed. Therefore, Gold’s claim that Spurs will try to compete for both Sabitzer and Andersen comes as an enticing one.
The Danish defender could be especially welcome, with Tottenham arguably needing a stable presence at centre-back above all else having conceded 41 league goals this season – the same as 17th-placed Brighton.
