Tottenham Hotspur have been a shadow of the side they were last season.

The north Londoners have gone from the Champions League final to being seven points adrift of the top five and out of all cup competitions.

They could do with a lift this summer and one emerging transfer report is sure to have fans excited.

According to Italian journalist Alessandro Jacobone, Spurs are one of several top-flight teams chasing RB Salzburg midfielder Dominik Szoboszlai ahead of next season.

Would you like to see Dominik Szoboszlai at Spurs?

Absolutely!

Absolutely!

No thanks!

No thanks!

Some of the other names in the mix include arch-rivals Arsenal, PSG, Atletico Madrid, AC Milan and Wolves.

La Repubblica, via Calciomercato, claim that the 19-year-old has a release clause of just €24m (£22m) which can be paid over three years, meaning Daniel Levy only has to cough up around £7m per season.

It’s something that the Spurs chairman should ultimately consider, even if his manager Jose Mourinho is awash with options in the central midfield role.

Szoboszlai’s national team boss, Marco Rossi, has tipped the teenager for big, big things. He said:

“He has the stigma of the champion, that’s for sure. First of all, he has a great personality despite his very young age. Then he has an excellent technique and a great game vision to which he combines remarkable physical means. Despite being 1.85m tall he is equipped with a very good speed. He is a complete player. I believe that in a couple of years, especially if his professional career is well thought out, he can become one of the best midfielders in Europe.”

The Salzburg sensation has provided seven goals and six assists from 30 appearances in all competitions, via FBref, meaning he averages 0.62 goal contributions per game from midfield.

'When he scored the goal the game finished for him. After that I needed 11 players for my defensive organisation and I had just 10.'

It’ll be interesting to see how this one develops, particularly given the emerging situation surrounding the future of Tanguy Ndombele, but at just three £7m instalments, this deal could surely be low-risk with the potential of high-reward.

  • Yeah, yeah, yeah, How many times are we linked to top young players and end up with a much cheaper player that’s nowhere near as good. The two Fernandez’ come to mind, how long were we linked to the Fernandez that went to Utd only to buy another that’s not as good. Typical Levy. Tight ARSE.

  • Yes, it would be great if we bought a young quality player. But, our recent purchases these past few years have
    been poor. The majority are no longer with us. We have also spent a fortune on Ndombele so let’s start by asking questions about our Scouts, managers and medical team if they agree the guy is fit for the Premier League.
    Levy doesn’t want to spend a penny for the Stadium has cost far more than estimated.
    Maybe, our best hope is new owner with more money and ambition.

  • Right the good old “he’s available, lets buy him” attitude. Never mind whether the player actually fills a gap in our squad. We need a proper centre forward to back up Kane. We need a left sided central defender. We don’t need any more midfield players. It just proves what I’ve always said, for many on this site its just about spending money. Whether you actually improve the squad or not doesn’t really matter. Why not just burn the cash ? be a lot quicker.
