Dutch journalist Marco Timmer has revealed that representatives from Tottenham Hotspur were in attendance at the Philips Stadium this week to watch PSV Eindhoven take on Benfica in the first leg of their Champions League playoff.
Reports emerged two weeks ago that Tottenham were exploring the possibility of bringing PSV’s Noni Madueke back to the club this summer.
The 19-year-old, who came through the Spurs academy, rejected the North London club’s contract offer in favour of a move to Dutch giants in 2018.
The youngster established himself as a regular in Roger Schmidt’s starting eleven last season, finishing the campaign with 9 goals and 8 assists.
Sources have indicated that the Lilywhites could face competition from Arsenal and Leicester for the forward, both of whom could offer him a route back into English football.
It looks as though Tottenham may be continuing to keep a close eye on Madueke with less than two weeks to go until the transfer window shuts.
However, it appears Spurs were not the only Premier League club who were watching PSV vs Benfica this week.
Timmer revealed that representatives from Leicester and Manchester United were also present at the Philips Stadium, along with those from French, German and Italian clubs.

It is quite puzzling to see Spurs being linked with wide players like Madueke, Kvaratskhelia and Traore in the final two weeks of the window. A centre-back, a right-back and a back-up striker are arguably bigger priorities for the club.
