A number of Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to give their thoughts on the report claiming Spurs are eyeing Real Madrid right-back Alvaro Odriozola.
The 25-year-old came through the ranks at Real Sociedad before joining Los Blancos in 2018 for a reported 30m Euro (around £27m) initial fee.
The Spain international has struggled for game time at the Bernabeu, with just 28 competitive appearances in all competitions, while this season, he has made just one appearance.
He spent the second half of the 2019-20 season on loan at Bayern Munich, turning out five times as the German giants won the Bundesliga, DFB-Pokal and Champions League treble.
In addition, Odriozola’s parent club won La Liga and the Supercopa de Espana, so the player finished the season with five trophies.
According to Semferr Sport, Real boss Zinedine Zidane is eager to move Odriozola on as soon as possible, while the player himself is also said to be keen on trying his luck elsewhere this year.
However, Jose Mourinho’s Spurs aren’t the only ones who are apparently eyeing the player – Borussia Dortmund, Paris Saint-Germain and AC Milan have also been linked with his services.
Odriozola may not be in Zidane’s plans at the Bernabeu and has been unlucky in terms of game time over the past 18 months, but he’s a high-calibre player who can offer a lot to a team.
Indeed, neither Matt Doherty nor Serge Aurier have exactly done enough to cement the right-back spot in the Spurs XI so there could potentially be some scope to strengthen that side in future.
But what have Spurs fans made of the speculation? Here is some of the reaction on social media:
This is real spurs we are coming for the UCL next season
