Tottenham ‘ready to make a loud statement’ with a move for €40m-rated forward

By Saikat -

Tottenham Hotspur continues to be linked with a move for the Icelandic attacker Albert Gudmundsson.

According to a report from the Italian publication TuttoMercatoWeb, Tottenham remain keen on signing the 26-year-old attacker at the end of the season and Genoa have set an asking price of €40 million.

The report further states that Tottenham are ‘ready to make a loud statement’ by signing the player in the summer. It is no secret that they need a reliable finisher in their ranks and Icelandic international could prove to be the ideal acquisition.

He has 15 goals in all competitions this season and he could fill the void left by Harry Kane when he left the club at the start of the season. Tottenham have missed a clinical presence upfront this season and it remains to be seen whether they can get a deal for Gudmundsson across the line.

He has already proven himself in the Italian league and the striker could be tempted to move to the Premier League now. If Tottenham secure Champions League qualification, they will be an attractive destination for most players. It will be interesting to see how the situation develops in the coming weeks.

Tottenham can certainly afford the €40 million asking price and it could prove to be a reasonable investment if the player manages to adapt to English football quickly.

Clubs like Inter Milan and Juventus are keen on the striker as well, but they might struggle to compete with the North London club financially. It will be interesting to see where the 26-year-old attacker ends up eventually.

The report claims that Tottenham could take advantage of the financial situation of the two Italian clubs and get the deal done.
