Most recently, Spurs have been linked to a plethora of attacking targets who could reinforce Jose Mourinho’s options going forward, with the likes of Christian Eriksen (Fabrizio Romano), Marcel Sabitzer (Bild) and Danny Ings (Eurosport) being mentioned in the past month as possible signings, either in January or next window.
Spurs admire Edouard
Now, as per the Daily Star, a new name could be attracting the attention of Spurs – with Hoops striker Edouard apparently being admired by Mourinho and chairman Daniel Levy at Tottenham.
The report mentions that either Spurs or arch-rivals Arsenal, could swoop for Edouard in the summer but neither side will contemplate making a move for him in January.
Edouard apparently commands a transfer fee of around £35 million, but the Star also say that he ‘fancies‘ a move to London and is ‘eager‘ to join a top-six side – coming as English capital rivals West Ham are set to push for the forward.
Spurs could consider a move during the next transfer window, and it’s safe to stay that Edouard would add real strength in depth to Mourinho’s attacking options.
Transfer Tavern take
The Athletic journalist Kieran Devlin, detailing the 23-year-old’s meteoric rise in a piece last January, revealed his nickname ‘Magic Odsonne’ – and it’s clear to see he’s gone on to back that up judging by his numbers.
Whether or not Levy does follow up on his admiration, however, and attempts to bring Edouard to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium remains to be seen – but it could be possible in the summer, especially if Carlos Vinicius is sent back to Benfica.
