Euro Paper Talk: Tottenham to pounce for Real Madrid right-back

Date published: Thursday 26th August 2021 12:30 - Rob McCarthy

Tottenham are plotting to swoop for a Real Madrid right-back before Tuesday’s transfer deadline, while an exciting Manchester United attacker could be set for a return to Serie A, all in Thursday’s Euro papers.

SPURS TO SWOOP FOR REAL STAR

Tottenham are reportedly ready to pounce for Real Madrid right-back Alvaro Odriozola, who has yet to give the green light to a proposed move to Fiorentina.

Real are open to allowing the 25-year-old to leave on loan, but the player has yet to make a definitive decision on his future.

Fiorentina have been chasing a new full-back after Pol Lirola moved on loan to Marseille. However, they also have a plan B in place in the shape of Lille right-back Zeki Celik – if Odriozola decides against the move.

Both Sky Sport Italia and Diario AS believe that Odriozola will head to Florence, but Tuttomercatoweb and FirenzeViola claim that Spurs have rejoined the race for the former Bayern Munich loanee.

The north London side were interested in Odriozola during Jose Mourinho’s time at the club. They are currently hoping to offload Serge Aurier before Tuesday’s transfer deadline to make room for a new addition.

If Aurier does move on that leaves Japhet Tanganga and Matt Doherty as right-back options for Nuno Espirito Santo. The former has started the opening two Premier League games with differing results. Tanganga excelled against Manchester City but struggled against the pace and power of Spurs target Adama Traore in the win at Wolves.

Odriozola is not the only right-back on Tottenham’s radar, however, with a move for Bologna’s Takehiro Tomiyasu back on the cards.
