Report: Spurs need to pay nearly £40m if they want to sign 20-goal winger

According to a report in CalcioMercato (as relayed by Sport.fr), Leeds have put a huge price tag on Tottenham target Crysencio Summerville as interest in the winger continues to mount ahead of the summer.

Summerville has been one of the best players across the Championship this season, with the skilful winger scoring 20 times and providing 10 assists across all competitions (Transfermarkt).

It was first reported by HITC around a month ago that Tottenham and several other Premier League clubs were eyeing a move for the Dutchman. The report also named the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, and West Ham United as admirers of the pacy 22-year-old.

Italian clubs enter the race for Summerville

CalcioMercato have now said that Summerville’s performances have not gone unnoticed in Italy, with a few Serie A sides now entering the picture.

Juventus and Napoli are thought to be among those, with both clubs thought to have now explored a potential summer deal for the Leeds star.

The report also names Spurs and Newcastle as clubs keen on the attacker, adding that Daniel Farke’s men have put a price tag of €45m (£38.7m) on the player’s head.

Spurs Web Opinion

It is ridiculous to expect any club to pay £40m for a player based on his exploits in the Championship. Leeds’ asking price is bound to drop if they fail to secure promotion to the Premier League.
