Middlesbrough are looking for £15 million plus add-ons for Djed Spence this summer, but Spurs are not currently meeting that price, according to The Sun journalist Tom Barclay. 

It has been claimed that both clubs remain way apart in their respective valuations of the 21-year-old, who enjoyed a successful spell on loan at Nottingham Forest last season. 

Boro are looking to achieve a fee in the region of £15 million plus add-ons for the wing-back, while Spurs looking to pay much lower than that figure. 

The news comes after Spurs chairman Daniel Levy took over talks with the Championship side to allow managing director Fabio Paratici to pursue other moves (Sky Sports). 

England U21 international Spence impressed with Forest last term and held a key role in their promotion to the Premier League via the play-offs. 

Tottenham’s interest comes alongside that of Premier League sides Newcastle and Brentford while Borussia Dortmund and Roma have been named as suitors across Europe (Football.London).

On the face of it, it looks like a relatively straightforward deal to complete but it seems like it could take a little while longer given this update. 

Middlesbrough have set their asking price and Spurs, like any club, are attempting to see if there is room to manoeuvre at all. 

If Boro are set in that then Spurs will have to cough up that figure – or they could abandon the move altogether if they do not feel it is right for them.
