According to La Razon, Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing Real Betis striker Loren Moron during this summer’s transfer window.
A recent report in AS claimed that there is Premier League interest in the Spaniard, who could be available for around €40m (£36.4m) ahead of the 2020/21 campaign.
And Spurs have been mentioned as possible suitors.
Moron was actually linked with Barcelona as an emergency signing following Ousmane Dembele’s injury, but the Spanish champions instead completed a move for Martin Braithwaite.
As expected, a number of Spurs fans have been on social media responding to the latest claim, and not too many are enthused by the idea of Moron arriving.
No chance. Way better options out there for that price

Not all of the Tottenham fans feel the same way, though, with two individuals suggesting that the striker would be a good signing.
Indeed, one claimed that Moron would be “decent” back-up to Harry Kane, while the other said that the pair could play alongside each other in attack.
decent potential backup to harry

they could also play alongside each other we don’t need to be so tactically rigid
