‘the interest is there’: Fabrizio Romano confirms Tottenham are keen on £45m-rated ace

By Saikat -

Tottenham are interested in acquiring the services of Aston Villa attacking midfielder Jacob Ramsey.

The North London club are looking to reinforce their attack as they prepare to take the next step under Ange Postecoglou after securing Europa League football last time out. Spurs look to add another homegrown player to the mix. They have been linked with Aston Villa’s Jacob Ramsey and Fabrizio Romano has confirmed their interest in the Villa academy graduate.

The transfer expert said via GIVEMESPORT: “What I heard is that this was a story from probably end of May, beginning of June, when they started a conversation. But it was just a conversation, not a formal bid from Tottenham to sign Ramsey.

“So the interest is there, but that’s it, at the moment. I think Aston Villa will do their best to keep the player at the club, they already sold Douglas Luiz, so it’s not going to be an easy one for Tottenham.”

Ramsey has had an impressive rise at Aston Villa, he has gone from strength to strength with every passing season. While things didn’t go according to plan for him in the 2023/24 season as he struggled with injury and could only feature in 21 matches, Tottenham are still looking to prise him away from Aston Villa.

The North London club want to add more quality to the attacking third and they feel the versatile 23-year-old could be a great addition to their ranks. Their interest in Ramsey is reportedly driven by their recruitment director Johan Lange who has seen him up close during his time at Aston Villa.

While they have been interested in the English midfielder for some time now, Spurs are yet to present a formal bid for the £45 million rated star. Unai Emery’s team have already sanctioned the departure of Douglas Luiz in this window following which their finances are now in check.

As a result, they are unlikely to let Ramsey leave the club given his importance to their team. Emery is focused on signing players who can help strengthen his squad as they prepare for their debut campaign in the Champions League.
