Striker’s asking price ‘scaring Spurs a little’ as Levy currently in talks for Tottenham signing

Despite the confidence that conversations are underway between Tottenham and KAA Gent for the transfer of Gift Orban, not everyone believes it will be an easy process.

Spurs are said to be targeting the Nigerian striker to help replace the gap left by Harry Kane’s transfer to Bayern Munich, and a report in Belgium stated that the deal was being negotiated.

That means Daniel Levy will be in talks with his Belgian counterparts to try and get the best deal possible for Tottenham, as RTBF suggest he isn’t overly happy with their requests at this moment in time.

That’s because the outlet, looking at how Gent could lose both Orban and their other star, Hugo Cuypers, in the same transfer window, believe the Jupiler Pro League’s demands are putting off Spurs.


They explain that Gent wanting ‘more than €30m’ for their player, which they are entirely entitled to do considering his goalscoring record, hasn’t gone down well in London.

In fact, that figure ‘scares Spurs a little for now’, Tottenham aren’t willing to simply splurge on the 21-year-old with their Kane money.

They’ll want to ensure he comes at a price they are happy with, which clearly isn’t €30m+, regardless of the fact he has scored 25 goals in 26 appearances since arriving from Stabæk last January.

Crystal Palace are among the clubs who have been linked with Tottenham Hotspur defender Eric Dier.

According to 90min, Crystal Palace are interested in signing Eric Dier from London and Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur in the summer transfer window.

The report has claimed Palace are “admirers” of Dier, who can operate as a defender or as a defensive midfielder.

Scottish Premiership champions Celtic, AS Monaco, Al Nassr, Sporting Lisbon and Benfica are also interested in the England international.

The report has claimed that Tottenham are willing to sell Dier, who was left out of new head coach Ange Postecoglou’s matchday squad for the opening Premier League game of the season against Brentford this past weekend.

Tottenham Hotspur defender Eric Dier would be a good signing for Crystal Palace

In our opinion, Tottenham Hotspur defender Eric Dier would be a good signing for Crystal Palace in the summer transfer window.

Dier has been playing in the Premier League since 2014 and has been a success in the division.

The 29-year-old is at the top of his game at the moment and would be able to make an immediate impact at Palace.

Dier’s ability to play in defence or in midfield would be an asset for Palace, who will be looking to end up in the top half of the Premier League table this season.

However, Palace could struggle to tempt the £85,000-a-week (Spotrac) player into a move to Selhurst Park.

While Palace are a big and established club in the Premier League, they are unlikely to challenge for any major trophies or even for the top six anytime soon.

Dier has made 270 appearances in the Premier League so far in his career.

The defender has scored 12 goals, given nine assists, and kept 86 clean sheets in those games.
