Tottenham are eyeing Andreas Skov Olsen and are scouting the Club Brugge winger in action for Denmark at the World Cup in Qatar, writes the HITC.
Spurs will be looking at a host of players over in Qatar in the hope of luring players to the Premier League in 2023.
Fabio Paratici is charged with the task of finding new talent and another winger is surely on his radar.
Lucas Moura’s time at Tottenham looks to be coming to an end and it has been fairly clear that Antonio Conte doesn’t quite trust Bryan Gil for a big role.
The latest name in the mix for Tottenham is Club Brugge winger Andreas Skov Olsen.
Het Nieuwsblad in Belgium report that Tottenham are interested in Skov Olsen and are watching him at the World Cup.
It’s stated that Tottenham’s interest in Skov Olsen is ‘already concrete’ and the winger is aware of Spurs scouting him in Qatar.
Tottenham haven’t yet made an offer to Club Brugge but if he impresses Paratici, a bid may well be on the horizon.
Skov Olsen, 22, started against Tunisia on Tuesday afternoon but couldn’t prevent a 0-0 draw for Denmark.
The Danes were beaten 2-1 by France on Saturday evening and Skov Olsen not only didn’t start, but he didn’t even make it off the bench.
That’s far from ideal for Tottenham and their plans to scout the winger in action, but his club form has been strong.
Six goals and three assist in 15 league games for Club Brugge is a decent record and Paratici may be aware of him after spending two-and-a-half years at Bologna in Italy.
A relatively tall, Scandinavian winger who predominantly plays on the right flank and loves to cut in on his left side… does that sound familiar to anyone?
Tottenham need to find some cover and competition for Dejan Kulusevski and may see Skov Olsen as being cut from a similar cloth.
That comparison is certainly interesting and Tottenham will hope to see Skov Olsen in World Cup action again ahead of the January window.
