Spurs target Joshua King hoping for Manchester United transfer

Speaking to Norwegian outlet TV2 (h/t Express), Bournemouth striker Joshua King, who has been linked with Tottenham Hotspur, has issued a ‘come-and-get-me’ plea to rivals Manchester United.

The 28-year-old Bournemouth star came through the youth ranks at United, but failed to break into the first-team. After spending time at Blackburn Rovers, he joined the Cherries in 2015 and has excelled with the south coast club.

However, following Bournemouth’s relegation, a number of star players have been linked with exits. Nathan Ake and Aaron Ramsdale have already left the club, while King, Callum Wilson and David Brooks are also reported to be headed for the exit doors. (h/t Express)

The 28-year-old King has emerged as a transfer target for Tottenham. However, it seems like the Norwegian international harbours hopes of returning to former club Manchester United. (h/t Express)

Back in January, King was heavily linked with a move back to his boyhood club Manchester United. However, a deal failed to materialize with the Red Devils instead opting to sign Odion Ighalo on loan instead. But, King has now claimed that he hopes United reignite their interest in him. (h/t Express)

“I will not lie, because I really wanted to go there in January, but what happened, happened. What if United are still interested? That would be amazing. I was at United for five years and I learned a lot there.”

The 28-year-old further went on to elaborate on how he dreamt about playing in the Champions League and insisted that he will wait and see what the future holds. (h/t Express)

“I know why things happened. We’ll just have to wait and see. There is a lot that is open.”

Given the lack of cover for Harry Kane at Tottenham, a new striker is a must for us this summer. King may not have had the best of the seasons last time out. But his experience in the Premier League and versatility would have made him a handy signing for us.

However, it seems like he has his heart set on a move to our rivals United, although it remains to be seen if they do rekindle their interest in him.
