Spurs in hunt for midfield ace says agent

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino praised his players and revealed his pride in them following the 2-0 defeat to Liverpool.

Tottenham are showing an interest in Mainz midfielder Jean-Philippe Gbamin, who looks to be in hot demand this summer.


Gbamin has caught the eye with some impressive performances in the Bundesliga, and the fact that he can operate as a defensive midfielder or a centre-half, makes him an attractive proposition for interested parties.

The player’s agent seems to be touting his client around and says a number of Premier League clubs, including Spurs, are showing an interest in doing a deal.

Gbamin is being valued at 60million euros and it remains to be seen whether anyone would be willing to go that high for a player who is still relatively unproven.

‘I had meetings with Liverpool, Tottenham, Arsenal, Everton and many other clubs,’ his agent has been quoted as saying.

He is in the shortlist.

‘However, not a top candidate, because its excat position is unclear.

In my opinion he is a player worth 60million euros.

‘ Spurs are in the hunt for new midfielders and it would appear that Gbamin is a player of interest.
