Tottenham have put all of their transfer business on hold until a new manager is appointed, according to The Athletic.
The report says Spurs are on the verge of signing an ‘international’ player who has already held talks with the club.
Apparently the deal ‘suits all parties’ involved, including the club, the player and his agent, but there is something holding up the deal – Tottenham’s drawn out manager hunt.
That means we could be hearing about a managerial appointment AND a first summer signing sooner rather than later.
But who is the mystery signing mentioned by The Athletic?
We presume it’s Joachim Andersen, the defender who spent last season on loan Fulham from Lyon.
The Guardian claims Spurs are targeting centre-backs and Andersen is name-checked in the report, as is Sevilla’s Jules Kounde.
Either way, it seems official announcements are imminent.
