Tottenham have reportedly joined several Premier League rivals, plus Real Madrid in the race to sign Rennes midfielder Edouardo Camavinga.

Despite his tender age, the 17-year-old has already shown his quality in Ligue 1 this season and is believed to have all the tools to develop into one of European football’s top midfield stars.

Indeed, Spanish outlet AS describes the player as a mix of ‘Casemiro and Kante… but with the physique of Pogba’.

And according to Football.London, that has encouraged Spurs to join the race for a player who is now valued at €50million (£43m), despite having a release clause of just £26.5m.

If he carries on at his current rate of improvement then Camavinga’s price tag is expected to skyrocket, which may price Tottenham out of a move of they do not act fast.

Spanish giants Real are believed to be at the front of the queue for the youngster, although there remains significant interest from Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal.

In fact, Gunners boss Mikel Arteta had earmarked Camavinga as a perfect midfield project, as he looks to revamp his under-performing squad this summer.

But with so many clubs interested, Rennes are sure to want a bidding war to begin to ramp up the player’s price – something that would probably only leave big-spending United and Real in the running for his signature.

Real ready to move for Harry Kane

Indeed, the England captain has previously voiced doubts over his future in North London, insisting that his ambition would not stop him moving elsewhere if he felt the circumstances were right.

Manchester United have been touted as a potential next destination, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer continuing the transformation of his team.

According to Mundo Deportivo, however, Madrid are “keeping an eye” on Kane ahead of a possible swoop when the transfer window re-opens. Read more…
