Spurs have been linked with a move for the Iceland defender Ragnar Sigurdsson.

The Krasnodar centre-back has been in impressive form during Euro 2016 and scored in Iceland’s shock victory over England this week. His performances have reportedly attracted the interest of several Premier League clubs, including Leicester and Liverpool.

On the face of it Sigurdsson seems like an unlikely target. At 30-years old he’s far older than any recent signing by the club and with Paul Mitchell now in charge of recruitment, you’d think the days of buying a player off the back of a few decent games in a summer tournament were gone.

That said, the rumoured fee of £4.1m is hardly excessive and Tottenham could well be in the market for a central defender this summer. The squad lacks cover for right-sided centre-back Toby Alderweireld, with Cameron Carter-Vickers still very young and Eric Dier now established as a midfielder.

Do you expect Spurs to but a central defender before the start of the season and if so, would Sigurdsson be a decent purchase?
