Spurs fans split over Tielemans update

Tottenham Hotspur have dropped their interest in AS Monaco midfielder Youri Tielemans, per Football Insider, leaving fans split over the news.

The Belgium international spent the second half of last season on loan at Leicester City, with Spurs linked with a move in the January transfer window.

The report claims that the Ligue 1 club have quoted Spurs a price of over £40m for the 22-year-old, who the Foxes would like to sign on a permanent basis.

However, the north London club are said to believe that Lyon’s Tanguy Ndombele and Real Betis’ Giovani Lo Celso are higher-quality targets this summer as they bid to make their first signing since 2018.

Indeed, The Guardian claim that Spurs are in talks with Lyon over a deal for the France international, while Lo Celso is said to be keen on working under Mauricio Pochettino in north London.

Nevertheless, fans are split over this decision, some believing that Tielemans, having proven himself in the Premier League with three goals and five assists in 13 games, would have been a shrewd addition, and others pleased that Tottenham are focusing their efforts on Lo Celso and Ndombele instead.
