Spurs prepare bid for Spanish defender

According to talkSPORT Tottenham are preparing a £27million bid for Alex Grimaldo from Benfica, according to reports.

Grimaldo has been with Portuguese giants Benfica since 2016, when he left Barcelona having failed to make a senior appearance for the Camp Nou club.

He was a star for Barca’s B team, and has been one of the best performers in Portugal since his transfer to the Estadio da Luz and that  form for Benfica has earned admiration from across Europe, and Spurs have prepared an offer from the young left-back.

The article goes on to say that Tottenham have ‘reserved’ around £27m (€30m) for Grimaldo, while Borussia Dortmund, of Germany, are also said to be interested.

Tottenham have not yet submitted their offer for Grimaldo, and it appears Mauricio Pochettino is holding off from making a move until Danny Rose’s future has been decided.

Rose has been consistently linked with a move away since last year – potentially for Manchester United – and Grimaldo is considered a replacement for the 28-year-old.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Why are we supposedly bidding for full backs ( if we can believe any of this newspaper banter) when our obvious needs are midfielders and a striker/forward. Grimaldo may or may not be o.k. but Danny Rose we know and it would seem suitors for his services are thin on the ground. As per last season we are linked
    with just about every serviceable player in the French, Spanish and Italian leagues. NO PROVEN TALENT,
    more works in progress or fingers crossed resurrection jobs. Nice to see our chairmans multi million boat
    moored in the Thames. Pity he doesn’t see fit to bid for REAL talent such as Mbappe who is currently one of the standout World Cup players. We have a good team already but need one or two established names to take us to the next level . Please, no more bargain basement projects. P.S. What happened to the Barrios play??
