According to a report in El Desmarque, Tottenham Hotspur and Wolverhampton Wanderers have both made contact with Copenhagen over a potential deal for their young forward Robert Skov.
The versatile 23-year-old who can play wide as well centrally, scored 32 goals in all competitions across 2018/19, becoming the first player since the 1990s to find the net so many times in the Danish top flight in a single campaign.
Sky Sports reported back in March that Skov was interesting Tottenham and Wolves, along with West Ham and Watford. However, reports now indicate that it has become a two-horse race between Tottenham and Wolves.
Radio Vigo reports that Copenhagen want £10.7 million for their prized asset, making him a relative bargain in the current market.
Some Spurs fans were not too enthusiastic about the link with several people suggesting that Levy was simply looking for another bargain.
However, others said that they would be happy with Skov as long as the club also signs more experienced players.

Im all for Skov – but needs to be complemented by big name players.
He’s a good prospect.

Spurs Web Opinion
While Skov’s talent is clearly evident based on his performances last season, he is still unproven at the very top. However, the asking price is quite low and if Pochettino believes he can develop the 23-year-old into a top player, then the club should back him.
