Report: Tottenham and AC Milan are battling it out to sign centre-back

 

Calculus of mass.It has been suggested that AC Milan is doing everything in their power to defeat Tottenham Hotspur for Lloyd Kelly, the center back for Bournemouth.

The rumors that Kelly would sign with the Spurs have gotten stronger lately. A few weeks ago, GiveMeSport reported that the North London team had conducted “detailed checks” on the Cherries star before January.

The 25-year-old was also mentioned by 90 minutes last week as one of the central defenders Tottenham is most interested in signing before January.

But Kelly has also surfaced as a target for Milan and Juventus, according to Fabricio Romano, who made the revelation a few days ago. The Serie A teams see the Englishman as a “interesting” option because his contract expires in the summer of 2020.

AC Milan are pushing to sign Lloyd Kelly

Calculus of mass.It has now given an update on Milan’s efforts to sign Kelly, stating that Geoffrey Moncada, the technical director, has traveled to England to observe the center-back in action this year.

The Rossoneri are rumored to not anticipate an easy transaction because Bournemouth does not want to lose the defender in the middle of the campaign.

The report also states that Juventus and Liverpool are reportedly interested in Kelly, and that Spurs, who have “not let go of Kelly” despite their failure to sign him in the summer, will compete with Milan.

According to the article, Stefano Pioli’s team is “strongly pressing” for the Bournemouth star’s services because they are unwilling to give up on him.

It seems that Bournemouth is okay with losing Kelly on a free agent and holding onto him until the following summer. That makes sense, considering the Cherries’ top priority would be to maintain their Premier League standing.

Chris Sutton makes claim that Spurs fans will love and Chelsea fans will hate

Chris Sutton feels that even though Chelsea won easily that evening, Tottenham Hotspur deserves much more credit for coming out on top in the London Derby.

Spurs, who had a perfect home record and were undefeated in the Premier League, were heavy favorites going into the match.

The first half saw a glaring difference between the two teams, but Cristian Romero’s ill-advised tackle inside the box that resulted in his dismissal changed the course of the match.

15 minutes into the second half, Destiny Udogie received his second yellow card, which made things worse for Spurs and reduced them to nine men. However, Ange Postecoglou’s team came back with some very impressive play.

Do Spurs deserve more credit than Chelsea?

Instead of abandoning the game and putting all nine men in the back, the home team persisted in playing with a high defensive line, created opportunities, and perhaps even looked more dangerous than Chelsea.

Nicolas Jackson took advantage of Tottenham’s pressure to score three goals in the last minutes to hand the Lilywhites a crushing defeat. However, Sutton thinks the Postecoglou team learned more from the game than their opponents.

The players’ mindset has been shaped by Ange, as evidenced by the incredible bravery we displayed with just nine men.

Whatever position we finish this season in, one thing is for sure: after the grind of Conte and Mourinho, Spurs fans wanted something fun and exciting.
