“Following the player closely” – Fabrizio Romano confirms Tottenham’s interest in young talent who’ll be a valuable addition to Ange’s squad

By Mehdi Gokal -

Tottenham are gearing up for the summer transfer window with a focused intent on strengthening their squad, eyeing promising young talents.

Among their potential targets is Archie Gray, an emerging star from Leeds United.

According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, the 18-year-old Gray has garnered significant interest from top clubs, including Chelsea, Liverpool, and Borussia Dortmund.

However, Tottenham have been closely monitoring Gray’s situation, recognising his potential fit within their long-term plans.

Gray has demonstrated his versatility and skill by excelling in roles as both a right-back and central midfielder throughout the last season.

Under the management of Daniel Farke, Gray started in 87% of league games, making a total of 52 appearances across all competitions .

His standout contributions earned him the EFL Championship Young Player of the Season award, playing a crucial role in Leeds’s strong league finish.

Currently under contract at Elland Road until June 2028, a potential transfer would likely require a substantial fee, estimated at around £30 million.

While Chelsea and Dortmund have shown concrete interest, no formal bids have been submitted by any club, as confirmed by Romano.

Tottenham remain actively engaged in scouting Gray, though they have not yet made an official offer to Leeds.

Speaking on his YouTube channel in a quick update live show, Romano said:

“For Archie Gray, I can tell you that Chelsea have been scouting the player, for sure he is a player they appreciate but also, Borussia Dortmund is the same. Dortmund are keeping a close eye on the situation of Gray.

At the moment, no bid, just interest and we will see what clubs like Manchester United and others do in this situation because many other clubs are scouting the player.

“But at the moment the two clubs with concrete interest at Chelsea and Dortmund but for example, Tottenham have also been following the player closely, so let’s see who is going to move in terms of the bid, but still nothing official to Leeds United.”

Spurs view Gray as a valuable addition capable of providing dependable backup for Pedro Porro and adding depth to the midfield. His versatility aligns well with the tactical vision of manager Ange Postecoglou.

As the transfer window progresses, Tottenham fans will be keenly watching to see if the club can secure Gray’s signature, potentially adding another rising star to their roster and bolstering their squad for the upcoming season.
