Tottenham have competition for Albert Gudmundsson

The report says that amidst the growing interest in the versatile forward, Genoa are willing to let him leave and would listen to proposals of around €30m (£25.8m).

It is revealed that Spurs have the ‘inside track’ on Gudmundsson’s situation due to their excellent relationship with Genoa.
