As per Sky Sports Germany, there has been a transfer update out of Tottenham Hotspur involving right-wing-back target Djed Spence.
The Lowdown: Spence eyed by Spurs…
Over the January transfer window, reports claimed Spurs and transfer chief Fabio Paratici had their eye on the Championship sensation amid his brilliant run of form for Nottingham Forest, on loan from Middlesbrough.
ESPN even said that multiple Tottenham bids for Spence were knocked back as the Lilywhites ultimately faltered in their pursuit of homegrown defender.
Their interest, however, has continued long past the winter with Goal even reporting that Spurs are the favourites to sign him as things stand.
Sharing an update, Sky now have some news for supporters.
The Latest: Sky drop Spence to Spurs update…
According to their information, Tottenham and Man City are among seven top English sides ‘vying’ to sign Spence this summer – but they face heavy competition from abroad.
It is believed two Spanish clubs, as well as Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig also have the 21-year-old on their list.
Bayern even have talks planned with Spence’s entourage behind the scenes as the player himself ‘plans to fly’ this summer.
The Verdict: A must-win race…
Lauded as an ‘incredible’ player who ‘massively fits the bill for Conte’ by former Spurs full-back Alan Hutton, Spence’s age and sky-high potential point towards a must-win race for Tottenham.
He’s already been called a ‘massive player‘ by Sky pundit Jobi McAnuff for his contribution at Forest on loan this season and all signs arguably point towards him getting better and better.
An untouchable in Steve Cooper’s side, playing the sixth-most Championship minutes in their squad this season, Spence has also majorly impressed in that time – ranking in as Forest’s fourth-best performer in terms of average match rating (7.01, WhoScored).
At such a young age, it appears the Englishman is already showing he can perform at a consistent level in a tough league, and Spurs may well have a real gem on their hands if they can get a deal done this summer.
