Report explains why Spurs are ‘in the front row’ to sign 26-year-old attacker

Calciomercato report that Tottenham Hotspur have now moved to the front of the queue to sign Albert Gudmundsson because the North London club would not have issues meeting Genoa’s asking price for the attacking midfielder.

Tottenham secured Radu Dragusin from Genoa during the previous transfer window and it has since been widely reported that the Lilywhites are considering raiding the Stadio Luigi Ferraris for another one of their stars in Gudmundsson (Gazzetta dello Sport).

The 26-year-old, who can operate in a number of attacking positions, including as a number ten or in the wide areas, has been one of the Serie A side’s standout performers this season, with 12 goals to his name so far.

Tottenham have an advantage in Gudmundsson race

CalcioMercato now point out that Gudmundsson is attracting interest from Italy and abroad, with Tottenham said to be ‘in the front row’ to sign him.

Inter Milan and Juventus are also named as sides who are keen on securing the Iceland international but it is suggested that those two clubs might not be able to pay the €30m (£25.7m) fee demanded by Genoa.

However, the publication suggests that Tottenham might not find it difficult to meet the aforementioned price, thus giving them an advantage over the two Italian sides.

Spurs Web Opinion

With Lo Celso likely to depart Tottenham in the summer, Gudmundsson would fit the bill as a backup for James Maddison, given his experience, tactical profile and the fact that he is available for a relatively modest fee.
