Tottenham leading the chase for 16-goal attacker this summer

By Saikat -

Tottenham are in pole position to sign Genoa ace Albert Gudmundsson.

Ange Postecoglou wants to reinforce his attack ahead of next season. After guiding Tottenham to a fifth-placed finish in his first season in charge, the Australian manager wants to add more firepower to his attack and according to Corriere dello Sport via SportWitness, Spurs are front-runners in the pursuit of Albert Gudmundsson despite the player’s desire to stay in Italy.

The Genoa forward wants to continue in Serie A and there is serious interest in his services from Inter Milan. But, the Italian outfit haven’t been able to strike a deal for his services yet. The €35 million asking price is a major obstacle for Inter who will have to sanction a few departures before making a move for Gudmundsson.

While he waits for the Italian giants, the 27-year-old forward is aware of Tottenham’s interest in his services. The North London club want a proven goal scorer who can lead their line and they feel the Genoa striker could be a great fit for their club. He was involved in 37 matches last season and ended up contributing towards 21 goals (16 goals, 5 assists).

He prefers playing as a second striker but is capable enough to feature anywhere in attack which could give Postecoglou multiple tactical options.

Gudmundsson will soon have to start listening to offers from other clubs. While there is interest from other Italian outfits as well, Spurs are believed to be leading the chase and they do have the financial strength to meet Genoa’s demands.
