‘I’d actually be down for this’: Some Spurs fans react to links with in-demand 6ft 1in sharpshooter

A number of Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to comment on the report in La Semaine claiming Jose Mourinho’s Spurs are leading the race for Metz striker Habib Diallo.

The French outlet claims that a move to England for the 25-year-old striker is “without a doubt” and Spurs are frontrunners, with Metz earmarking Ibrahima Niane as his replacement.

Last month, Diallo’s agent Thierno Seydi told Senegalese outlet APS: “Already last January, there was an offer from Tottenham.

“Now he has received an exit offer and, as soon as the European markets open, (his departure) should be settled.”

Diallo enjoyed a bright 2019-20 season for the Maroons, scoring 12 goals and claiming three assists in 26 games as they survived their first season back in Ligue 1.

The 6ft 1in forward has been linked with numerous English sides over the past year, including Leeds United, Crystal Palace, Leicester City and Chelsea, according to Le Quotidien du Foot.

The above report, published in late March, also claimed that Metz valued their striker at 20m Euros (around £18million).

Spurs are certainly in need of bolstering their attacking ranks, given the injury crisis up front which left them without a senior forward prior to the season being temporarily halted.

 

But what have Tottenham fans made of the prospect of signing Diallo? Below is some of the social media reaction to the speculation:
