Report: Tottenham target’s price has gone up after scoring four goals in two games

CalcioMercato have claimed that Genoa have now decided to increase their asking price for Albert Gudmundsson after the attacking midfielder’s outstanding displays for Iceland during the international break.

Gudmundsson netted a hat-trick for his country last week to help them overcome Israel in the Euro playoff semifinal and he scored another brilliant solo goal in their playoff final loss to Ukraine on Tuesday.

It has been widely reported over recent days in Italy that Tottenham are expected to be challenged by the likes of Inter Milan and Juventus for the 26-year-old’s services (FcInterNews).

Spurs will have to pay more for Albert Gudmunddson

This has now been backed up by CalcioMercato, who say that Spurs, Juve, Inter and West Ham United have all shown interest in Gudmundsson ahead of the summer.

The report claims that Genoa would have been prepared to sell the player for €25m (£21.3m) in January but had decided to increase their asking price to €30m (£25.6m) a few weeks ago.

However, it is alleged that the figure has been ‘revised upwards’ again in light of the attacking midfielder’s impressive showing for his country.

While the publication does not say exactly how much Genoa want for Gudmundsson, they make it clear that the Serie A club will not accept any deferred payments nor will they entertain any part-exchange offers.

It is perhaps a positive for Spurs and Gudmundsson’s other suitors that Iceland have failed to qualify for the Euros. Had the midfielder impressed on the big stage in Germany this summer, Genoa would have potentially added another £10m to their asking price.
