According to reports in Poland, rumoured Spurs target Michal Karbownik is available for sale this summer with Southampton said to have joined Spurs and Celtic in adding the player to their radar.

The Legia Warsaw youngster has been impressive since bursting on to the scene this season, managing seven assists in 28 league appearances during the campaign (transfermarkt.com).

Although the 19-year-old has predominantly been employed as a full-back, he has been tipped to evolve into a midfielder in the future.

Tottenham have reportedly sent scouts to Poland on multiple occasions to watch the teenager in action (The Mirror – 26/04/2020, p68).

The rumours looked like they would be put to rest when Karbownik put pen to paper on a new four-year deal with Legia at the end of May.

However, Polish outlet Sportowe Fakty now claim that Legia may intend to cash in on the defender this summer despite the fact he has signed a new deal.

It is suggested that Karbownik could be available for £9million when the transfer window opens.

Spurs Web Opinion

It is hard to tell if our interest in Karbownik was genuine or if it was drummed up by his agent to get him good terms on his new deal. Now that he has signed a contract with Legia Warsaw, one would imagine that there would be a release clause if not at least a verbal agreement with the club that he could leave if a sizeable offer came along.
