“If true, this would be massive” – Some Spurs fans react to transfer gossip


Some Tottenham Hotspur fans have been taking to social media to share their reaction to a potential January transfer rumour.

According to Il Mattino, as cited on Sport Witness, Tottenham Hotspur and North London rivals Arsenal have both made an enquiry over Napoli’s Dries Mertens.

The 32-year-old is out of contract at the Serie A side at the end of the season and is also attracting interest from fellow Italian outfits, Inter Milan and Juventus.

Tottenham are desperate for options in the final third of the pitch having lost Vincent Janssen and Fernando Llorente as back-up striking options in the summer for Harry Kane with Mertens also having the ability to also play wide.

Mertens joined Napoli ahead of the 2013-14 season and has become an influential player at the club having recently overtaken the legendary Diego Maradona as the second-highest scorer of all time at the club (90min).

Here’s how some Spurs fans reacted to the rumour.
