Tottenham might be desperate to sign a left back in the upcoming transfer window but is this a position worth losing a striker and a defensive midfielder for? That’s the equation suggested by the Daily Express who claim that Spurs could be looking to swap two players on a temporary basis in order to fill one problem area.
Sevilla’s Alberto Moreno is among a number of high quality left backs being linked with moves this summer. Daley Blind, Ricardo Rodriguez and Luke Shaw are among the others but while transfer fees for the 21 year old are being quoted from £25m upwards, Tottenham could be priced out of a straight cash deal.
Earlier in the month we picked up on reports claiming that Spurs were prepared to offer £14m for Moreno plus Etienne Capoue and Roberto Soldado on loan for the season. Today, according to the Express, the stakes have increased to £16m plus Capoue and Soldado until the end of the campaign.
Liverpool are allegedly eyeing up a similar proposal but is Moreno good enough for our club to consider such a complicated and sizeable offer?
