Tottenham battling with Liverpool for Ligue 1 star
By Bruce Grove -

Lille’s Sven Botman has emerged as a transfer target for Tottenham, but they face competition from Liverpool for his signature.

The Dutchman has been one of the key players at the French side who has helped them to compete for the Ligue 1 title this season.

They are currently top of the standings with 58 points and he has played 25 of their 26 games in the competition so far.

His fine performances have been attracting the attention of top European teams and France Football says Spurs want him.

The Lilywhites were keen to land a top defender in the summer transfer window before they got Joe Rodon from Swansea City.

The Welshman and the other options at the club have lacked the consistency that Jose Mourinho is looking for and this could force them to acquire another defender.

Spurs will, however, have to see off competition from Liverpool and Inter Milan for his signature.

The Reds have been decimated by injuries this season and they wanted to sign him in the last transfer window.

They, however, ended up with Ben Davies and Ozan Kabak as cover for the likes of Joe Gomez and Virgil van Dijk.

If either side is serious about landing him, he would cost £40m, even though he only joined them in the summer from Ajax for £7.8m.

THFC do not battle with Liverpool for a players signature. If players get a sniff of getting the chance to ply their trade for the Bin Dippers they automatically fly into John Lennon airport at the rush.

Know nothing about him. What I do know is that we need to get the centre back sorted. Punts, second best options, two for ones and multipacks and hopeful options to buy, loans and swapsies ain’t gonna cut it.
