According to a report in De Morgen (as translated by Sport Witness), Tottenham have called off their move for Club Brugge’s Andreas Skov Olsen.
Olsen has scored nine goals and provided six assists across all competitions for Brugge this season but most of those came during the first half of the campaign.
After the winger’s impressive start to the season, Het Nieuwsblad reported last December that Tottenham were eyeing a move for him ahead of the January window.
De Morgen have now revealed that Spurs did show interest in Olsen in January when the player was valued at €20m (£17.7m) but Brugge did not want to let him go at the time as they believed the Denmark international would develop further in the second half of the campaign.
However, that has not quite materialised, partly due to the injuries the 23-year-old suffered, and his value has now reportedly fallen to €17m (£15m).
The publication asserts Olsen’s name is ‘no longer’ on Tottenham’s wishlist and that his ‘dream transfer’ to the Lilywhites now seems to be ‘completely’ off the table.
Spurs Web Opinion
I do not think Tottenham’s interest in Olsen ever got to the stage where the club were seriously considering an offer for the winger.
He was likely one of many players that Paratici and his network of scouts had their eye on ahead of the January window.
