Transfer News: Tottenham Hotspur offered Kristian Thorstvedt by his agent
Thorstvedt is a 22-year-old Norwegian midfielder who plies his trade in Belgium with Genk. The report describes the 6 ft 2 in player as a box-to-box midfielder who is ‘physically commanding’.
Spurs had a pretty impressive summer transfer window that saw a number of incoming and outgoings. Players like Toby Alderweireld, Erik Lamela, and Moussa Sissoko were moved on and Nuno Espirito Santo brought in five quality players.
Bryan Gil, Pierluigi Gollini, Cristian Romero, Emerson Royal and Pape Matar Sarr all joined the former Wolves boss’ project at N17 this season. But it now seems like Thorstvedt could be another name that could be added to the squad in the future.
Father-Son duo at Spurs?
Spurs’ current options in midfield include Harry Winks, Oliver Skipp, Tanguy Ndombele, Giovani Lo Celso, and Pierre Emile-Hojbjerg. Ndombele is yet to feature this season and the Lilywhites look like they can use a young midfielder for the short term and the future.
He played in 34 games in all competitions last season, scoring 9 goals and providing three assists. He has also featured in 6 games for the club during their latest campaign, of which two came in the UEFA Champions League qualifiers loss against Shakhtar Donetsk.
Kristian is the son of Erik Thorstvedt, the retired Norwegian goalkeeper who spent 8 years at Spurs between 1988 and 1996. While there is no indication of familial links playing a role in his transfer, Erik can give his son some insight about the club if a move is to materialize.
