Spurs surrender to Liverpool in £25m transfer race for midfield goal machine

According to reports from Mirror Football, Tottenham Hotspur have dropped out of the race to sign Newcastle United midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum.

In recent weeks, a number of sources have linked Spurs with a summer swoop for the 25-year-old, who claimed eleven Premier League goals from the middle of the park last season, including The Telegraph.

But the Netherlands international now appears to be verging upon a move to Liverpool instead, with Shields Gazette claiming the £25million-rated Magpies star is set to undergo a medical on Merseyside.

And Mirror Football are now reporting that the Lilywhites have dropped out of the race to sign Wijnaldum entirely, giving Liverpool a ‘free run’ at the 30-cap international.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino is said to be a huge fan of Wijnaldum’s but deems Newcastle’s £25million valuation as far too high.

Spurs are, however, on the verge of signing winger Georges-Kevin N’Koudou after agreeing a £10.8million transfer fee with his current employers Marseille.
