According to Italian publication CalcioMercato (h/t Evening Standard), Spurs are interested in a move for Atalanta midfielder Ruslan Malinovskyi this transfer window. The approximate value of the deal could be as high as £17 million.
It is likely that the Ukrainian will leave Atalanta. His wife, Ruksana, shared on social media the reason why the creative midfielder may leave the club this summer..
“Naturally, it’s very sad for us, but this is life in football. He has to think about his future as a professional football player. We are happy here. We were not ready to have to change our lives. The transfer window is coming to an end and now we are forced to seek other options. Seek… because there is a serious reason. You have to read between the lines.”
Thus, the Ukrainian midfielder is preparing for the move to another club, and the price of £17 million does not scare away Tottenham and other Premier League clubs .
