Tottenham fans are absolutely loving the latest transfer rumour, as the North Londoners have been named favourites to land Leicester’s Harry Maguire.
According to Oddschecker, Tottenham are the favourites to land one of England’s World Cup stars if he leaves Leicester this summer, with some bookmakers pricing the move as low as 2/1.
Tottenham could yet lose Toby Alderweireld this summer, so Mauricio Pochettino and Daniel Levy will absolutely have to find another top quality centre back to bring in.
Matthijs de Ligt was heavily linked with a move to North London earlier in the summer, but it seems attentions may have turned to Maguire after his incredible World Cup form.
The Leicester man is the epitome of the “good feet for a big man” cliché, completing 87 per cent of his passes at the World Cup and getting fans off their seats with his driving runs forward with the ball.
He’s also one hell of a defender, and has shown this summer he can operate comfortably in a back three, something Pochettino will certainly like.
Valued at £22.5m by Transfermarkt, the links to Maguire have certainly got fans excited, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…

He fits the Poch mould perfectly. Can’t see the Foxes letting him go though.

Now this is one of the few rumours I’d like to see come off. Impressed with his performances so far in Russia and believe he could become better still under the current Tottenham coaching staff.

Would love this – he has heart, height and gets forward. If Toby is not committed – yes, yes, yes
