Tottenham Hotspur lead race for Benfica winger Zivkovic, fans react

The transfer rumour mill will be in full swing in a matter of months when clubs up and down the country will be free to buy new players.

Tottenham Hotspur may have plenty to sort out due to the ongoing uncertainty over the futures of Toby Alderweireld and Mousa Dembele.

With regards to incomings, The Independent reports that manager Mauricio Pochettino will be handed £120m to spend on new players this summer.

According to TeamTalk a report in Portuguese publication A Bola has claimed that Spurs have moved ahead of Liverpool in the race for Benfica winger Andrija Zivkovic.

The report states that the North London club are prepared to meet the £52m asking price for the 21-year-old, who was watched closely by scouts from Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester United during last weekend’s match against Porto.

This season, the attacking midfielder has started 13 league matches, as well as three in the Champions League.

Zivkovic, who can play in all positions across the midfield as well as in an advanced role on the right side of attack, has contributed with three goals and four assists in all competitions.
