Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing Spanish club midfielder Gabri Veiga this summer, but they will have to battle some of Europe’s top clubs for his signature, according to a recent report from the Daily Mail.
What’s the latest Tottenham transfer news?Tottenham are keen on bringing in a new central midfielder this summer, and they have recently set their sights on signing Nottingham Forest’s Morgan Gibbs-White, having been impressed by his performances in the Premier League this season.
Another potential option in a more advanced role is RCD Mallorca’s Kang-in Lee, with Spurs now leading the race for the 22-year-old, who could be available for less than his €30m (£26.5m) release clause in the summer.
The Lilywhites are ready to swoop for Fulham’s Joao Palhinha, with Daniel Levy lining up an offer for the Portugal international, although Chelsea and Manchester United are also gearing up to make moves.
According to a report from the Daily Mail, there will also be stiff competition for Veiga’s signature this summer, as the likes of Real Madrid, Manchester City, Liverpool and Tottenham are all battling to win the race for the midfielder.
The Celta Vigo star has a buy-out clause which is currently set at £35m, and former Brighton and Watford coach Oscar Garcia has tipped him to be a success, should he complete a move for England.
Garcia claims there are “similarities” between the 20-year-old and both Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard, while he also praises him for his “very good technique”.
