It promises to be a big summer for Tottenham Hotspur in this year’s transfer market as they look to improve on a successful season that saw them reach the final of the Champions League. Today’s Spurs transfer roundup includes a huge boost in regards to Christian Eriksen, as well as interest in players from the Eredivisie and Serie A.
Twist in Eriksen saga
According to Marca, Real Madrid are no longer interested in midfielder Christian Eriksen. After signing Eden Hazard and Luka Jovic, manager Zinedine Zidane has instead decided to go all out for Manchester United’s Paul Pogba, with him unwilling to consider any alternatives such as the Danish international.
Lozano on the radar
Tottenham have entered the race to sign PSV’s Hirving Lozano, RAI journalist Ciro Venerato has told CalcioNapoli24. Napoli have reportedly already made a bid for the Mexican, but now Spurs have shown interest in the player because Real Madrid have set their sights on Heung-Min Son. Lozano starred at the 2018 World Cup and bagged 17 Eredivisie goals for PSV last season.
Strakosha catches Spurs’ attention
According to Gazzetto Dello Sport, Spurs have their eyes on Lazio goalkeeper Thomas Strakosha. The Albanian goalkeeper has been with the Serie A side since 2012 and is the club’s number one. A €25m (£22.27m) bid should be enough to turn Lazio’s heads according to the Italian publication. One can only assume he’s being targeted as a potential replacement for Hugo Lloris, who has struggled for form over the last twelve months.
