Some Tottenham fans react to Sven Botman report
Some Tottenham Hotsput fans were reacting after a report emerged over Lille ace Sven Botman.
What’s the story?
According to Sky Sports, Spurs are not convinced the Dutchman is at ‘their level’ after only playing one season of top-flight football. Nevertheless, Lille would accept a fee similar to the one Arsenal paid for Gabriel – £27m.
The ‘amazing‘ defender moved to Lille during last summer’s transfer window for €9m (£7.7m) as a replacement for the Brazilian. And his debut season proved to be special, as the French side beat Paris Saint Germain to the Ligue 1 title.
He made 37 appearances in the league, the most he has ever had in a top division. Prior to his arrival at Les Douges, Botman had only appeared 26 times in the Eredivisie.
If not Botman, Tottenham need a backup
If not Botman, Tottenham need a backup target as their deal for Romero seemingly halts.
The Argentine looks to be Spurs’ number one centre-back target. However, the latest news is far from encouraging.
According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Atalanta want a guaranteed £47m for the 23-year-old.
It means that, if a move is unlikely, the club will need a back-up and whether that is Botman or someone else, it’s crucial.
With the departure of Toby Alderweireld confirmed, Spurs can ill-afford to go into the new season without a new central defender.
