Tottenham fans love Levy’s tactic in Saliba chase

Tottenham Hotspur fans have been left in hysterics over chairman Daniel Levy’s offer for Saint-Etienne defender William Saliba.

RMC Sport claim that Spurs made an offer worth €30m (£26.9m) up front, without bonuses, for the teenager.

Arsenal had tabled an offer that reached £26.9m with bonuses but have now been forced to match Spurs’ bid as they look to acquire the defender.

Reports have suggested the Gunners had agreed to loan the teen back to the French club for the 2019/20 season, however.

Saliba enjoyed his breakthrough at the Ligue 1 club last season, making a total of 19 senior appearances at the age of 18.

And Spurs fans believe this is a win-win situation; some, of course, want to sign an exciting young defender, while others are laughing at the prospect of Arsenal spending over half of their reported budget on a player who is, at this stage, merely a prospect.

Indeed, many have taken to Twitter to laud the strategy being employed by Levy.

Take a look at the best of the reaction below!
