Speaking to GiveMeSport, journalist Rudy Galetti has revealed that Chelsea have joined the race for Tottenham Hotspur target Aymeric Laporte from Manchester City.

Tottenham, in the midst of a transformative summer transfer window, have been making significant moves to bolster their squad. With the acquisition of Guglielmo Vicario to succeed the legendary Hugo Lloris between the sticks and the exciting addition of James Maddison in midfield, the Lilywhites have shown their ambition

However, their attention has now shifted to fortifying their centre-back position. Spurs have initiated discussions with Wolfsburg regarding a potential deal for Micky van de Ven. Meanwhile, they continue to monitor the situation of Edmond Tapsoba from Bayer Leverkusen.

Yet, Aymeric Laporte, who has previously been linked with a move to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, remains an enticing prospect for the Lilywhites. Now, Galetti has added fuel to the fire by revealing that Chelsea have expressed interest in the Manchester City star.

The Blues, who are known for their relentless pursuit of top talent, have reportedly made inquiries about Laporte’s availability. Although no formal negotiations have taken place thus far, it seems that the Premier League giants are considering him as a potential reinforcement for the upcoming season.

Speaking about the situation, here is what Galetti had to say about Chelsea’s pursuit of Laporte

With two heavyweight London clubs vying for his services, it is clear that the battle for his signature will be fiercely contested. Tottenham will need to demonstrate their ambition and lure Laporte to come to the N17.
