Tottenham’s pulling power may not be enough to lure in a top defensive target.
According to reports, Tottenham’s pursuit of Fulham defender Tosin Adarabioyo is a losing endeavor. AS Monaco is also interested in the imposing center-back, and Spurs chairman Daniel Levy was unable to turn away during a recent round of transfer negotiations.
In the last days of the summer window, Adarabioyo is one of the few deals still accessible. The 25-year-old has one year left on his deal with Craven Cottage, and he has no plans to extend it.
Therefore, Fulham is under pressure to make a profit on the former Manchester City academy product in order to reduce the likelihood that they would lose him for nothing after a year. Spurs and Monaco have traditionally been Adarabioyo’s top two suitors.
