Tottenham have reportedly expressed their interest in signing Aston Villa midfielder Jacob Ramsey.
Tottenham experienced a relatively successful window, securing the early signings of Timo Werner and Radu Dragusin, and they continue to stay active in these closing days.
According to David Ornstein of the Athletic, Spurs have shown interest in signing Aston Villa midfielder Jacob Ramsey.
It is claimed that Spurs have ‘made their admiration for Ramsey clear’. However, they face competition from other clubs like Bayern Munich and Newcastle, with the latter being regarded as the most interested party.
While Spurs have expressed admiration for Ramsey, the report indicates that Villa would prefer to keep the young midfielder, who has become a key player for them.
Aston Villa manager Unai Emery views Ramsey as an important asset to the team and aims to retain his services amid significant interest.
Villa manager Unai Emery is also keen on retaining the services of the club’s academy player amid huge interest, recognising him as an “important” asset to the team.
Despite the desire to keep Ramsey, the report suggests that offers exceeding £50 million would be considered.
Spurs have been after Chelsea’s Conor Gallagher, but a move this month looks extremely unlikely. However, a summer move is still a possibility given Chelsea’s willingness to sell him. He only has 18 months left in his current contract and the club has shown no intent of handing him an extension.
It remains uncertain whether Tottenham will formalise their interest in Jacob Ramsey with a concrete offer in the final days of the winter transfer market or opt to reassess their options in the summer.
