Report: 'Incredible' player wants to join Spurs ahead of other clubs, could arrive alongside Bissouma

Tottenham Hotspur haven’t wasted any time in the summer transfer window.

Spurs have already signed Ivan Perisic and Fraser Forster, and are reportedly closing in on Yves Bissouma.

And chances are, Tottenham will probably sign more players before the window closes.

7 Greatest Premier League Managers of All Time

Last week, there were reports claiming Spurs were on the verge of landing Djed Spence from Middlesbrough.

Although those reports proved somewhat premature, it looks as though discussions are still going well.

According to The Athletic, Tottenham remain in talks with Boro, although no agreement has been reached.

However, Spence has reportedly expressed a preference for joining Spurs ahead of other interested parties.

Apparently, the opportunity to play Champions League football under Antonio Conte is a major attraction for the right-back.

Earlier on Tuesday, The Telegraph reported that the total cost of any deal for Spence could reach £20million.

Spurs are reportedly looking to pay half of that upfront and then spread the rest of the cost out across later payments.

Tottenham seemingly closing in on “unbelievable” talent

Spence is a top talent and a player who could become a star for Tottenham if he joins.

The 21-year-old announced himself to a nationwide audience earlier this year when he helped knock Arsenal out of the FA Cup.

Ian Wright labelled his display against the Gunners “unbelievable“.

Meanwhile, Michael Bridge told Last Word on Spurs: “Spence was incredible against Arsenal in the FA Cup.

“But Spurs have been looking at Spence for a lot longer than that.”

Spence looked a cut above in the Championship last term, helping Forest return to the Premier League after 23 years.

Although Steve Cooper’s Reds are still keen on him, it looks as though Spurs are frontrunners for his signature.

If Spence joins Tottenham, can carry on his Forest form and buys into Conte’s methods, then the sky’s the limit really.
