Tottenham are set to wait until the final few days of the transfer window to make a move for Manchester United forward Anthony Martial, according to the London Evening Standard.
Spurs have reportedly held an interest in Martial throughout the summer. The Frenchman, who is said to be eager on an exit from Old Trafford, has also been linked with Chelsea, Bayern Munich and Juventus.
Earlier this week, reports suggested Tottenham have no plans to make a move for Martial. However, the Standard now claims that Spurs are still keen, although they are willing to wait until other clubs have conducted their business before pushing for a deal.
That’s nothing new. Tottenham fans are used to chairman Daniel Levy leaving things until the last minute when it comes to transfers.
United are said to be interested in Toby Alderweireld, and Spurs are likely to be hoping Jose Mourinho is willing to offload Martial in exchange for the Belgian.
Whether than is indeed the case remains to be seen. It’s safe to say the final two weeks of the transfer window will be dramatic from a Tottenham perspective.
