Tottenham Hotspur ‘likely’ to make January bid for Denmark’s Andreas Skov Olsen after World Cup mission

Tottenham Hotspur are ‘likely’ to make a bid for Denmark and Club Brugge winger Andreas Skov Olsen in the January transfer window, as per Het Nieuwsblad (h/t Evening Standard).

The Lilywhites apparently sent scouts to follow the 22-year-old at the 2022 FIFA World Cup. Denmark did not qualify from the group stages after a disappointing showing, but Skov Olsen was lively whenever he was on the pitch.

His strengths lie in his crossing and passing skills from out wide and he could be the creative outlet that manager Antonio Conte needs in his team. There is no reason why he can’t be moulded into a right-wing-back in the 3-4-2-1 formation that Conte likes.

Or, he can simply be added competition down the right-hand side for Dejan Kulusevski and even Richarlison. Despite the hype surrounding him ever since the 2020 UEFA Euros, Skov Olsen joined Club Brugge in January 2022.

What should Spurs do?

He still has three and a half years left on his contract with the Belgian outfit (Transfermarkt). Having played 25 senior games for the Danes already, it is clear that he is highly rated at the club and the international level.

Skov Olsen will also have a familiar face in Tottenham’s dressing room in the form of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg. The two played at the 2022 FIFA World Cup together, where the Brugge wideman started two group-stage games.

Hopefully, the former Bayern Munich and Southampton midfielder put in a few good words about us in Skov Olsen’s ears during their time in Qatar. Spurs have apparently held an interest in him since 2019.

If we really admire him for such a long time, there is no point in waiting any longer. Luckily, he didn’t set the world alight at the FIFA World Cup and his valuation and hype may not have increased a lot due to that.
