As Dean Jones reports, difficult negotiations have led to a major disagreement between Tottenham and Middlesbrough. Spurs gave Middlesbrough an ultimatum over the transfer of right-back Djed Spence.
Antonio Conte’s team has been interested in the young defender since January, and still the clubs cannot reach an agreement on a fee for the player.
According to Sky Sports, there have been two rounds of negotiations, the London club values the player at 10 million pounds, in turn Middlesbrough at 15 million pounds.
Recent reports hint that Tottenham could leave the negotiations table if they do not come to an agreement. The patience of the London club is running out, and the difficult talks are at an impasse.
The only obstacle is the amount of the transfer. Chris Wilder’s team knows Spence wants out, and the fee paid for the player will cover them for the entire transfer window. Tottenham hopes to complete their fourth summer signing, specifically the young right guard and strengthen the defensive line.
