According to The Telegraph, Leeds United are demanding £30m this summer for rumoured Tottenham Hotspur target Jack Harrison.

It was The Telegraph who first reported back in April that Tottenham were eyeing a move for Harrison, who could help with the North London club’s homegrown quota. 

The report claimed that Antonio Conte wanted to convert the 25-year-old into a wing-back, and added that Leeds had turned down an approach from Spurs for the player during the January transfer window.

The former Manchester City man, who scored 10 goals in all competitions during the 2021/22 campaign, has two years left to run on his contract at Elland Road (Transfermarkt).

The Daily Mail revealed last month that Spurs were facing competition from Newcastle United for Harrison, with Eddie Howe allegedly keen on bringing the wide-man to St James’ Park.

The Telegraph have now revealed that Leeds have slapped a £30m price on Harrison’s head amidst the Magpie’s interest. However, the report adds that, as things stand, Newcastle are not willing to match Leeds’ asking price for the winger.

If Conte was indeed looking at Harrison as a potential option for the left wing-back role, Spurs would have likely ended their interest in the Leeds man after their capture of Ivan Perisic. Ryan Sessegnon proved with his performances in the final few months of the 2022/23 campaign that he can be an able deputy for the Croat.
