Report: Spurs are in a three-horse race for 26-year-old centre-back this summer

The Sun have revealed that Tottenham Hotspur might have to see off competition from both Liverpool and AC Milan to land Fulham centre-back Tosin Adarabioyo this summer.

The rumours linking Adarabioyo with a move to Spurs are not new but they show no signs of dissipating ahead of the summer transfer window, with the centre-back’s current deal at Craven Cottage running out in June.

Last week, Football.London’s Alasdair Gold named the Englishman as one of the names on Tottenham’s wishlist ahead of the summer.

Spurs in a three-way battle for Adarabioyo

The Sun now say that Fulham have not given up hope of tying down Adarabioyo to a new deal and have even offered him a ‘lucrative new deal’.

However, they now face serious competition from some of Europe’s best clubs for the defender, with Spurs named as one of three clubs keen on the player.

Liverpool are also said to be eyeing a move for Adarabioyo as there is thought to be uncertainty about the futures of both Virgil van Dijk and Joel Matip.

Finally, it is alleged that AC Milan have identified the Fulham centre-back as one of their top targets to replace Simon Kjaer, who is expected to leave San Siro this summer.

Spurs Web Opinion

I would be quite shocked if Adarabioyo agrees to join Spurs as he will know that he is not likely to be a regular starter at N17. The centre-back is going to have a lot of clubs to choose from as a free agent this summer and he will want to go somewhere he is guaranteed to play.
