Tottenham Hotspur have included Lille star Sven Botman on their transfer agenda.
Newcastle United and AC Milan were keen on signing the defender in the winter market and their interest was already confirmed by his agent. However, neither of them was able to take the 22-year-old away from the Ligue 1 side in January.
Earlier this month, the player’s representatives met the Serie A side’s leaders and the aim was reportedly to ‘overcome’ competition from the Magpies to sign him in the summer.
TuttoMercatoWeb now claim the Dutchman is the ‘first declared goal’ of the Rossoneri. In order to secure the centre-back’s services, Milan are ‘ready to offer’ Lille a fixed fee of €20m plus €5m in potential payments as bonuses.
Apart from Stefano Pioli’s side, the north London club and Juventus are also in the picture for Botman.
Regarding Spurs, TWM claim they ‘want to give at least one centre-back of international level’ to Antonio Conte and that’s why Tottenham ‘think about’ Botman.
For now, the English capital club are only ‘thinking’ about the Dutchman. Spurs need to take concrete steps to sign Botman since Milan have made progress in their efforts to secure his services.
