Report: Tottenham in battle for £60million-rated Leicester defender Harry Maguire

Tottenham are reportedly one of four teams that are interested in signing Leicester City defender Harry Maguire.

According to the Sun, the 26-year-old could play his final game for the Foxes at the weekend on the last game of the Premier League season.

It is understood that Spurs, Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United will then battle it out for the England international in the summer.

The report details that the centre-back is valued at £60million and it will be a British record for a defender if he does exit the King Power Stadium.

Maguire, who earns £90,000-a-week (Spotrac), has earned a reputation as one of the best players outside of the top six clubs in England.

TBR’s View:

Maguire has all the tools to play for a top club, but whether Spurs are going to break their own transfer record to get him remains to be seen.

He is a ball-playing centre-back that is a great passer and has confidence in coming out of defender in possession.

The towering ace is also a serious threat from set-pieces and is rarely beaten in aerial duels.

With Spurs reaching the Champions League final this season, will their finally be a shift in their transfer spending to compete for the most expensive players?
