Transfer News: Tottenham Hotspur one of three mega clubs interested in signing Rennes ace Lovro Majer

HommeduMatch, Tottenham Hotspur are eager on signing Rennes star Lovro Majer.

The attacking midfielder joined the French club from Dinamo Zagreb earlier this summer. However, it has not taken him a lot of time to adjust to the new league and country. The playmaker has already contributed to three goals in eight appearances across all competitions this season.

This has seen his stock rise considerably and brought him to the attention of some of Europe’s top teams. Tottenham appears the most interested club in securing his services. While a move in January is unlikely, a summer switch is on the cards.

Several clubs are ready to splash the cash for his signature. Manchester United and Bayern Munich are also interested in landing the player as they look to add to their star-studded squads.

A new dawn?

The positive vibes have returned to North London following the appointment of Antonio Conte. His arrival has boosted the possibility of us finishing in the top 4 this season, a prospect that looked meek under Nuno Espirito Santo.

Man United are our direct rivals in the top 4 race and losing out on Majer to them is something we must avoid at all costs. With Dele Alli’s form has fallen off a cliff, it is imperative that Spurs bring in another player who can function as an attacking midfielder.

Majer has the potential to become a leading player in the years to come. Whether that evolution will happen at Tottenham remains to be seen.

Gareth Bale and Carlos Vinicius left after their respective loan moves this summer, while Dele Alli and Tangy Ndombele look off the paces this season.

Thus, the Croatian international could bring a creative influx to the side and give Conte more options. The Italian could be looking to launch a trophy challenge next season and squad depth will play a major role in us doing so.
