'We're massive', 'looks like R9': Some Spurs fans erupt after seeing 26-goal striker in Tottenham shirt

Spurs is currently a hotbed of transfer speculation thanks to the efforts of Fabio Paratici.

Tottenham are looking to rebuild in wake of a poor 2020-21 campaign and Paratici is certainly doing his bit.

The Italian has extensive knowledge of Serie A and two Atalanta players are apparently closing in on Spurs.

Goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini is all-but set for Tottenham, according to reports.

And defender Cristian Romero is apparently in talks with Spurs over a switch to N17.

On Friday, teammate Luis Muriel raised a fair few eyebrows when he was pictured in a Tottenham shirt on a five-a-side pitch.

A come-get-me plea to Paratici, a tribute to his teammates who are reportedly joining Spurs, or just gassing fans up?

Either way, Tottenham fans loved seeing Muriel sporting their team’s top in his spare time.

Here’s what they said on Twitter:

Obviously Tottenham could do with bolstering their ranks up front, whether Harry Kane leaves or not.

And Muriel isn’t a bad shout, considering he grabbed 22 Serie A goals last season and 26 in all competitions.

Plus, he has been compared to Brazilian legend Ronaldo, one of the greatest centre-forwards of all time.
