Tottenham could end their transfer drought by signing a prolific Danish winger this summer, while Manchester City are at the front of the queue to sign a upcoming Brazilian star, according to Tuesday’s European papers.
TOTTENHAM PLANNING SWOOP FOR COPENHAGEN STAR
Tottenham are reported to be at the front of the queue to sign in-form FC Copenhagen winger Robert Skov, according to the Danish media.
The 22-year-old has caught the eye of a number of Premier League suitors this season, scoring 24 times in 38 appearances for Copenhagen this season.
According to Ekstra Bladet, as per Sky Sports, Skov has been watched by Watford, Wolves and West Ham this season. But it is Tottenham who are at the front of the queue to sign the player and are said to be ready to make a firm offer for the €20m-rated star.
The former Denmark Under-21 international has a contract with Copenhagen until the summer of 2022 and is able to play on either wing, and can also operate in a more central position if required.
Tottenham have gone two transfer windows without signing a new player but could look to end their drought with the capture of Skov this summer.
