Tottenham leading race to sign 23-year-old Liverpool target

By Saikat -

Tottenham are front-runners for the signature of Liverpool target Lutsharel Geertruida.

The North London club are looking at ways to further bolster their squad ahead of next season as they aim to finish inside the top four. They are interested in the services of Liverpool target Lutsharel Geertruida and according to a report from the Mirror, Tottenham are in pole position to sign him.

Geertruida has had a sensational rise at Feyenoord, he has been a part of their first team since the summer of 2018 and has been one of their most consistent players in recent years. The Dutch full-back had 14 goal contributions in his 47 outings last season.

With his contract running out in 12 months’ time, there has been a lot of talk about his future. Liverpool are one of the clubs that have been heavily linked with the 23-year-old following the appointment of Arne Slot as the new manager of the Reds.

With the former Feyenoord boss taking over at Anfield, Geertruida has been linked with a move to the Merseyside club. While Slot is a big admirer of the Dutch international who can feature as a full-back, a centre-back and even as a defensive midfielder, he is unwilling to make him his first signing at Liverpool.

Having seen Erik ten Hag get criticised for signing players from Eredivisie, Slot is reluctant and it has open the path for Spurs who are looking to bolster the right-back position with Emerson Royal’s departure highly likely.

They want to bring in a top quality player who can bolster their ranks and Geertruida will surely be a valuable addition thanks to his versatility. With just a year left on his deal, Feyenoord value the 23-year-old at £25 million which could be considered as a bargain fee by Spurs given the potential and quality of the Dutch international.
