Monday saw Sky Sports come out with a rather interesting story, claiming that Tottenham were interested in FC Copenhagen’s impressive Robert Skov.
The winger has been in terrific form for the Danish club this season, scoring 22 goals in 24 league games so far, helped by a run where he bagged 11 in four on either side of their winter break.
Also assisting teammates six times, it’s no surprise the 22-year-old has attracted attention from Spurs, as well as many other Premier League clubs.
However, one thing Sky Sports never mentioned was how much the forward could end up costing an interested side, so we decided to go have a nosy to see if anyone knew.
While there’s no official stance by Copenhagen as of yet, Skov does still have three years left on his current deal, meaning they won’t need to sell at a lower price.
Back towards December when the forward was at the peak of his 11 in 4 run, Danish agent Mikkel Beckmann reckoned the Superligaen outfit could make as much as 100m Danish Kroner (or around £12m) from his sale.
He said, relayed by BT: “If several clubs start a bidding war, then it can quickly go up, and FCK know what to do for their players. If he gets international games on his CV, his market price will increase.”
The current league record for a sale stands at DKK95m, and there’s every chance a Skov sale could smash that.
For Tottenham, this could be an interesting transfer going forward, as he wouldn’t exactly be breaking their bank, which will suit Daniel Levy just fine.
Certainly one to keep an eye on, and we’ll be doing so to see if there’s any updates in Denmark in the weeks and months to come.
