“Spurs love him” – Alasdair Gold makes exciting Tottenham transfer update regarding 23-year-old

By Mehdi Gokal -

Tottenham may seek to bolster their defence in the current transfer window.

Among the potential targets, Spurs are considering a summer move for Crystal Palace centre-back Marc Guehi.

Alasdair Gold of Football.London has pointed out that while Tottenham has a strong interest in Guehi, acquiring him might be difficult.

The England international has garnered attention from several top clubs, which has increased his potential transfer fee.

Guehi’s contract with Crystal Palace extends until June 2026, and the club is hesitant to part ways with him.

His impressive performances for both Palace and the England national team have made him a highly sought-after player.

During the ongoing Euros, the 23-year-old has been a crucial component of Gareth Southgate’s team, starting in both of England’s games so far.

Despite suffering a knee injury that sidelined him for nearly three months last season, Guehi returned to make 25 Premier League appearances, starting 23 of those matches, and even captaining Palace on several occasions.

Gold emphasised that Guehi’s high valuation and the competition from other top clubs complicate any potential deal.

Moreover, Spurs are not prioritising a high-cost centre-back this summer unless a significant player departure occurs, which currently seems unlikely.

While answering questions on Football.London, Gold responded:

“Spurs love him but he’ll be big money this summer, chased by every top club going and Tottenham aren’t really prioritising a centre-back as an immediate big money signing this summer unless someone major left, which is not expected at this point.

“Also, I’d be stunned if Palace let him go on top of Olise and Eze with their release clauses.”

As Guehi remains focused on the Euro 2024 campaign in Germany, he has delayed making any decisions about his club’s future.

The Lilywhites continue to assess their defensive options, with the English centre-half being considered as a valuable addition to their squad.
