Tottenham Hotspur have been silent in the transfer market so far; except for rumours linking players away from the club.
The mood now in the club is to step up the efforts to sign players. Polish media outlet Sport claims that Spurs are ready to make a lucrative offer for AS Monaco defender Kamil Glik in an attempt to bring him to the Premier League.
Glik is currently at the training camp in Vienna with Monaco. He had been a revelation last season helping his side become Ligue1 Champions and reach the semi-finals of Champions League.
Monaco’s success had a negative ripple effect this season as most of the players are being coveted by top European clubs – and Glik is no exception. The 29-year-old Poland international joined Monaco last summer and his current contract runs until 2020.
The French Champions view him as a vital first team player and are ready to offer fresh terms on the current contract. Spurs are eager to trump that and offer significantly more for the defender.
Mauricio Pochettino is a huge fan of Glik and has been chasing him since his playing days at Torino. The defender snubbed his interest and chose to join Monaco last year. Pochettino could once again be in for a disappointment as it is understood that Glik is not keen to a move to White Hart Lane. One of the reasons must be the depth at Tottenham in the central defence.
Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld have established themselves as the main central pairing for Tottenham. Though Glik will provide competition for places, he may not be the automatic first choice, like he is with Monaco.
His current club too would be reluctant to lose him. Monaco are already under pressure to keep many of their stars with the likes of Thomas Lemar, Tiemoue Bakayoko, Benjamin Mendy and Kylian Mbappe all being chased by big clubs.
Not all these players would move away from the Principality. With Glik not too keen on a move, Tottenham may find it difficult to sign their target.
