While reports in the press over recent days seem to indicate that Tottenham are prioritising the central midfield area this summer (The Telegraph), Spurs have also been linked with several attacking talents including FC Nordsjaelland winger Andreas Skov Olsen.

The 19-year-old shot to the limelight last season scoring 26 goals in 44 games for Danish side Nordsjaelland.

The Sun reported last month that Tottenham were leading the race for the teenager, who has been dubbed the ‘next Eriksen’ in his home country.

The Dane only has twelve months to run on his contract at Nordsjaelland who face the predicament of selling him for around £15million this summer or risk him walking away for free at the end of next season (Daily Mirror).

However, Carsten Jensen, Director of Football at the club has poured cold water on Tottenham’s hopes of landing the youngster by suggesting that 20 different clubs have made approaches for Olsen’s signature.

Speaking to TV3 Sport on Friday Jensen said, “Right now, 20 clubs have approached us seriously.”

While it looked like Spurs could secure Olsen on a bargain, it looks like the asking price will likely increase on the back of so much interest in the player. However, it is also possible that Nordsjaelland are merely trying to increase his value by making exaggerated claims.
