Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly interested in singing Polish wonderkid, Michał Karbownik, who has made quite an impression in his debut season back in his home country, according to a report in The Mirror (26/04, p68).

Karbownik, who can play as a left-back or right-back, has six assists in just 19 league appearances since breaking into Legia Warsaw’s team this season (transfermarkt).

The Poland U19 international has reportedly been watched extensively by scouts from Tottenham for over a year and the North London club are said to have established a strong relationship with Legia during that time.

It is revealed that the Lilywhites are now plotting a move for the 19-year-old, who will reportedly cost around £10 million.

With Danny Rose (Northern Echo) and Kyle Walker-Peters (Sky Sports) both rumoured to be leaving at the end of the season, Karbownik’s ability to cover both full-back positions could make him a valuable asset for Tottenham.

The report reveals that Spurs face competition from Dinamo Moscow, AC Milan, and Real Betis for the teenager’s signature.

Spurs Web Opinion

I expect a lot of young talents to be sold this summer as many smaller clubs around Europe will be forced to raise money in order to deal with the financial impact of the coronavirus. If we approach this transfer window in the right way, there are potentially some great deals to be had.
