Fabrizio Romano Says Tottenham Want to Sign Unique Forward after Gray


Tottenham Hotspur have emerged as one of several clubs interested in signing highly-rated Rennes youngster Desire Doue, according to Italian transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.

The 18-year-old Doue is considered one of the hottest prospects in Europe, having attracted attention from a number of clubs since his breakthrough in France. Reports suggest Rennes could demand a hefty £35 million to part ways with the winger this summer.

Despite recently securing the arrival of Archie Gray from Leeds United in a £40 million deal that included Joe Rodon moving in the opposite direction, Tottenham appear keen on adding Doue to their ranks alongside the English prodigy. Romano claims Tottenham have already made contact with Doue’s representatives.

Speaking on his show on Playback on Tuesday, Romano revealed that Tottenham are not finished in the transfer market despite signing Gray. “It’s true that Tottenham have a genuine interest in this boy,” Romano said. “This is not something new. The interest is there and he is one of the players appreciated by the Tottenham board.”

“Doue is one of the best talents in his position, and he is on the list of several clubs and the list of Tottenham,” Romano continued. “First of all, Tottenham have signed Archie Gray and that is a wonderful signing for Tottenham. But it’s also true that Desire Doue is another player they are considering. Internally, they already expressed their interest to the agents of the player, so Doue is one to watch for Tottenham – but not only for Tottenham, as several clubs are following this boy.”Fabrizio Romano Says Tottenham Want to Sign Unique Forward after Gray
