Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly interested in going for Gent striker Gift Orban, who netted 20 goals in 22 appearances for the Belgian club last season.
Transfer Expert, Fabrizio Romano, has dropped the latest update on Nigerian striker, Gift Orban, who has been heavily linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur this summer, Soccernet.ng reports.
It was reported a few weeks ago that the Lilly Whites are looking for a replacement for Harry Kane, who has since departed London to join Bayern Munich.
Tottenham’s all-time goal scorer joined the Bundesliga champions last week for an initial £100m with just one year left on his contract.
However, Spurs are keen to replace Harry Kane with another center-forward and are interested in Gent striker Orban, who is valued at £30m by his club.
In another development a few days ago, Fabrizio Romano confirmed that Tottenham have a concrete interest in bringing the Nigerian striker to England this summer.
Tottenham haven’t made a bid yet, but talks are ongoing, and the Premier League side are expected to send their first offer to Gent this week according to Sacha Tavolieri.
The Nigeria International has scored 25 goals from 26 appearances since he joined the Jupiler Pro League side from Stabeak in January. This has seen him attract interest from several clubs, Ange Postecoglou’s side included.
Romano has dropped a new update that the London club has an interest in Orban, but no bid has been tabled yet, and the speculations will be more unraveled in the coming days.
While we’re speaking, there has been no official bid from Tottenham to Gent. So it’s an idea, it’s a possibility, it’s an option, but it’s not a concrete negotiation yet.
So let’s wait and see if Tottenham will go for him or another striker. But the expectation is that they will sign at least one player in that position, Romano told GIVEMESPORT
Orban moved to Belgium from Norwegian club Stabeak for just £3.3m six months ago, and he’s currently valued at £30m by Gent. He hasn’t represented Nigeria yet at any level.
