Spurs ready to pay £20m for Arsenal-linked ace

Tottenham are willing to pay £20m for the signature of Monaco’s highly-rated midfield anchor-man Geoffrey Kondogbia this summer, according to reports from Sport.

The 22-year-old France international enjoyed a fantastic season in the red and white shirt at the Stade Louis II, and his performances have alerted a host of top level clubs.

Arsenal are believed to be among the chasing pack, with reports having suggested that Arsene Wenger has already spoken to Kondogbia about a move, but now it’s claimed that Spurs are in the running.

Sport allege that the North London side are willing to offer around £20m for the midfielder, with manager Mauricio Pochettino a big fan of the powerful ex-Sevilla man.

Their interest, however, may not be enough, with Barcelona also keen.

The Catalans are currently European champions and possess a star-studded squad with the likes of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar present, while Xavi’s exit has opened up a midfield slot, which may make the La LIga giants an even more appealing option.
