Sky Sports have revealed that Bournemouth have accepted an £18.5million offer from Sheffield United for rumoured Tottenham target Aaron Ramsdale.
However, it now looks as if the Blades have won the race for the shot-stopper who left Bramall Lane to sign for the Cherries in 2017 for a deal worth £1m.
The report claims that Chris Wilder’s side had seen a £12m bid to re-sign the 22-year-old rejected by Bournemouth earlier this month before coming back with the increased offer.
While the fee has now been agreed between the two clubs, it is said that Ramsdale’s personal terms are yet to be negotiated.
It is revealed that Sheffield United switched their sights to Ramsdale as Dean Henderson is currently in negotiations with Manchester United over a new contract, following his two-year loan spell with the Blades.
It is also claimed that Henderson, who is said to be interesting Spurs (Mundo Deportivo), wants to compete with David De Gea for the number one shirt at Old Trafford.
Spurs Web Opinion
There are one of two ways we can go as far as our goalkeeper pursuit is concerned this summer. We can go for a bargain backup option to replace Michel Vorm, in which case we will probably not be looking to spend upwards of £5m. Conversely, we could go for a younger, up-and-coming goalkeeper who could initially play second fiddle to Lloris before eventually replacing him as the club’s number one long-term, a bit like how the Frenchman was brought in to faze Brad Friedel out. Looking at the names we have been linked with so far (Dean Henderson, Andre Onana, Thomas Strakosha, Mike Maignan, etc), it does sound like Mourinho might be looking to pull off the latter.
