Tottenham’s summer move for Harry Maguire
Spurs have been busy in recent days after appointing Postkoglu as the club’s new head coach after Celtic won the domestic treble last season.
The north Londoners are now trying to bring in a new sporting director after Fabio Paratici resigned for the 2022/23 season after his appeal against a two-and-a-half-year ban was rejected by Italy’s top sports tribunal.
Despite the search for a new sporting director, the club have already begun planning their summer recruitment and are looking to bolster their defence.
Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with several defenders, including Antonio Rudiger, Marc Guie, Robin Koch, Aymeric Laporte, Levi Colwell and Eyre Vin Ndika, but Maguire has emerged as a potential transfer target.
The paper claims Postkoglu’s side have yet to say whether they will bid for Maguire, but have expressed an interest in the player.
Tottenham are determined to keep Harry Kane this summer despite his contract expiring in 2024. Kane is currently being watched by Real Madrid and Manchester United – who are eager to sign a proven striker to complement Marcus Rashford next season.
However, according to telegraphHowever, Spurs’ interest in Maguire has nothing to do with United’s desire to sign Kane, and there is no indication of a potential swap deal between the two clubs.
Tottenham Hotspur are eighth in the Premier League table with 63 goals in 38 appearances and are out of Europe next season. It is believed the club will attempt to offload up to seven first-team players, including defenders Ben Davies, Davinson Sanchez and Eric Dier, so Spurs will need replacements.
After struggling to start a consistent game for the club last season, Maguire has dropped down the table at United. He made 31 appearances in all competitions for Erik 10 Hag’s side.
