Tottenham have launched a sensational €30m bid in an attempt to hijack a deal from Arsenal for St Etienne defender William Saliba.
Spurs’ North London rivals have been front-runners to sign the Frenchman all transfer window, but Tottenham have emerged as favourites and have met the demands of the Ligue 1 side, according to @GFFN.
Mauricio Pochettino is not openly in the market for a new centre-back, but Toby Alderweireld – who has a £25m release clause, if signed before 25 July – has been linked with a move to Serie A side Roma and reports have been circulating that Frank Baldini has arrived in London to try and get a deal over the line for the 30-year-old.
If that deal was to happen, then Spurs would have just three senior centre-backs at their disposal – with one of them being the inexperienced Juan Foyth – so bringing the teenage sensational to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium would be make perfect sense for the Argetine, not to mention getting one over there fierce rivals.
