Report: Tottenham ready to meet £40m asking price, previously trained with Spurs

Tottenham are expected to be busy this summer in order to challenge for the Premier League title next season.

Website Calcio Insider have claimed Tottenham Hotspur are set to meet Borussia Dortmund’s asking price for exciting attacking talent Christian Pulisic this summer.

The 19-year-old is believed to be interesting a number of Premier League sides ahead of the summer transfer window, but it is believed that Spurs are in pole position to land the USA international as they are ready to meet his price tag.

The Daily Mirror claims that asking price is around the £40million mark for Pulisic, who at 19 has shone for Dortmund throughout the 2017-18 campaign.

Despite his tender age, Pulisic has been involved in 12 goals during his 42 league and cup appearances this season and has already clocked up 97 senior appearances for the Bundesliga side. Scoring five, he also set up seven strikes.

Spurs could be in the market for another attacking option despite luring Lucas Moura to north London in January. Moussa Sissoko has been below par, while Georges N’Koudou and Josh Onomah remain out on loan.

Pulisic admitted to magazine FourFourTwo back in 2017 that he actually trained with Spurs before completing a move to Dortmund in 2015 as well as Southampton. But for Spurs to have him back, Daniel Levy must pay through the nose.

The attacker has three years left on his contract but his burgeoning reputation and overflowing potential could convince Spurs to land one of the most exciting youngsters on the planet.
