At this point, there’s little point denying an interest from Tottenham in Albert Gudmundsson, as the Premier League are associated with the Iceland international on a near daily basis.

Gazzetta dello Sport do it once again on Wednesday, looking at Inter Milan’s desire to sign the Genoa star before quickly mentioning Spurs as the main competition.

They explain that those in charge of transfers at the San Siro have ‘informed the forward’s agent’ of their appreciation for the player, but have yet to kickstart anything with his club.

It’s pointed out ‘these are not the times’ for such moves, but they also know there is a need to move early to try and beat the competition, which is mainly coming from Tottenham.

They explain that various Premier League sides are keen, but it’s ‘above all’ Spurs that are in the mix, and all those in England have ‘notoriously greater’ spending power than Inter.

That’s why Inter will move ‘once they have won’ Serie A, with this confidence stemming from the fact they are currently sitting 14 points ahead of second placed AC Milan with eight games to go.

As for the amount needed, it’s said the Italians ‘must find the way to reach €30m’, but there is also the risk that amount could rise, especially if the player continues his great form.

For those who aren’t aware, Gudmundsson has scored 13 goals and assisted another four in 30 appearances this season, which is exactly why Tottenham are interested.
