‘I’ll tell you a price’: Club CEO confirms how much Spurs need to pay for 12-goal star

By Saikat -

Tottenham Hotspur are keen on signing the Genoa attacker Albert Gudmundsson at the end of the season.

The 26-year-old Icelandic international has been in fine form for the Italian club this season, scoring 12 goals in all competitions. His performances have attracted the attention of the north London outfit and they are looking to make a move for him in the summer.

According to comments from the club’s CEO, Genoa will not sanction his departure for cheap and they will demand a fee of around €40 million. It will be interesting to see if Tottenham are prepared to pay the asking price for the 26-year-old attacker.

Genoa CEO Andres Blazquez said via FC Inter News: “I’ll tell you a price so you understand that we don’t want to sell: €40m”.

It is no secret that Tottenham need a quality forward and Gudmundsson could lead the line for them next season. His arrival will allow Son Heung-min to operate in his natural role as the left-sided attacker. It would also add more depth to the squad.

Tottenham are likely to be in the Champions League next season and they will have to deal with fixture congestion. They need more options at their disposal so that they can rotate their players and keep them fresh. Signing a quality goalscorer should be one of their priorities in the summer.

The North London outfit have an exciting project and a quality manager. They could compete for major trophies in the coming seasons and the Icelandic international will certainly want to be a part of their project.

It remains to be seen whether Tottenham and follow up on their interest with an official proposal in the summer. The reported €40 million asking price could prove to be a reasonable investment if the attacker manages to adapt to English football quickly and hit the ground running.
