Tottenham will have to make Real Betis a ‘very juicy’ offer if they are to sign striker Loren Morón this summer.
Spurs are expected to be busy in the summer transfer window, with it widely accepted that the squad needs serious investment.
They are in particular need of reinforcements up front, with the failure to find a replacement for Harry Kane having hampered them over the last few seasons.
Indeed, should Kane leave this summer, as it has been claimed he might, Tottenham’s need for a new striker will only be heightened.
One man they have been linked to is Betis striker Morón, who has 11 goals and three assists in 29 games in all competitions for the Spanish side this summer.
Reports earlier this month indicated that Tottenham had identified the 26-year-old as a possible addition although it would take a big offer to make it happen.
Estadio Deportivo back up that claim today, stating that the striker ‘has been tempted’ by Tottenham and Napoli, among others.
However, Betis are not all that keen on selling the Spaniard and would only be willing to sell if the ‘capital gain is very juicy’.
In other words, they want to make a major profit on the man they signed on a free transfer from Marbella in January 2015.
That will come as no surprise to Tottenham, who had to negotiate hard with the same side last summer over Giovani Lo Celso and know they are no pushovers in that regard.
However, that negotiation will also give Spurs confidence here. Aside from already having an established relationship with Betis because of it, they will also know that they can get a deal that suits them if they play their cards right.
That’s what happened in the deal for Lo Celso, and there’s every chance Daniel Levy will do the same if they are genuinely interested in Morón.
