Tottenham handed blow in their pursuit of 16-G/A Premier League star

By Saikat -

Tottenham Hotspur are keen on signing Morgan Gibbs-White.

According to Football Insider, the 24-year-old Premier League midfielder is on their transfer wishlist for this summer, but they have now been handed a major blow.

Nottingham Forest are unwilling to sell the player this summer and it will be interesting to see if Tottenham decide to move on to other targets. They need to add more creativity and goals to the midfield and the 24-year-old would have been a quality acquisition.

Gibbs-White had an impressive campaign last year scoring six goals and picking up 10 assists. He could have been the ideal alternative to James Maddison. His arrival would have allowed Tottenham to rotate the England international more often and they would have had more options to work with. Furthermore, the Nottingham Forest star is versatile enough to operate in wide areas as well. He has the physicality, technical ability and flair to operate in multiple roles.

Tottenham will need to add more attacking quality to the side if they want to win trophies next season and it remains to be seen who they end up with. Gibbs-White has a long-term contract with Nottingham Forest and they are under no pressure to sanction his departure. Even if they sell him, they are likely to demand a substantial amount of money. The Premier league side paid £42.5 million to sign the player in 2022, and they will look to make a substantial profit on him.

Tottenham need to strengthen the multiple areas of their squad and they cannot afford to overspend on the midfielder. It would be ideal for them to move on to other targets who are attainable for a more reasonable price.
