Tottenham target the 24-year-old Celtic midfielder as they seek to boost squad this summer


Tottenham are monitoring Celtic midfielder Ismaila Soro, informs the Daily Mail.

The 22-year-old was a £2.7million signing from Israeli side Bnei Yehuda in January last year but barely figured under former manager Neil Lennon.

That hasn’t dissuaded Tottenham though who recognise the Ivory Coast-born Soro as a holding player of talent who could bolster their squad.

He has gone on to make 20 appearances this season but there would still be obstacles around him earning a work permit should he move south with an appeal necessary if talks progress.

Tottenham are assessing a number of targets but will be working under a restricted budget.

They are also keen on Fulham centre back Joachim Andersen with Davinson Sanchez likely to leave.

According to Danish publication BT Sports’ football podcast – Transfer Window – United, Chelsea and Tottenham are in the hunt for the centre-back, who joined Fulham on a season-long loan at the start of the campaign from Lyon.

The podcast also reports that the 24-year-old’s representatives are set to meet with Tottenham next week regarding a potential transfer in the summer after Sportsmail previously revealed Spurs were weighing up a move for him.
