Tottenham To Beat Everton To £13.5million Signing Of Danish Midfield Ace

Published

on

It is being reported in the German media that Tottenham Hotspur are chasing Werder Bremen’s Danish midfielder Thomas Delaney. With the player earlier reported to be a target for Everton, it looks like the Lilywhites are all set to snatch another player from under the noses of a Premier League rival.

Delaney is one of the in-form midfielders in the continent, with sparkling performances both for the club and the country. During the international break, he scored 4 goals in 2 games, including a hat-trick against Albania.

The youngster followed it up with a man-of-the-match performance against Hertha Berlin during the weekend. That increased the rumours in the transfer mill as Weser Kurier picked up reports stating that Tottenham are interested in the £13.5million-rated Delaney.

The 26-year-old is a late bloomer and appears to be improving with every game at the club and national level. The player was picked up by Bremen from FC Copenhagen last January and is enjoying a sustained goal scoring patch of his career.

No wonder then that Spurs are ready to discount their usual transfer rules to go for Delaney. Chairman Daniel Levy generally goes for a youngster in the early 20s but the 26-year-old could be a rare exception.

Working under Mauricio Pochettino and along with national teammate, Christian Eriksen is a huge incentive for Delaney, although he won’t be a natural starter at the White Hart Lane.

There are three deep-lying midfielders at Pochettino’s disposal already, with Victor Wanyama, Eric Dier, and Moussa Dembele available as options. So Delaney will not be a guaranteed starter.

What sets Delaney apart is his long-range shooting and his ability to time his late runs into the box, thus offering something different for the manager.

This would be a huge blow for Everton as the Toffees scouted him during his time at Copenhagen but did not follow through on their initial interest. Bremen stole the march by signing him and loaning him back to the Danish club.

The Toffees could now face another disappointment as Tottenham look to sign Thomas Delaney.
