Tottenham Hotspur is among a list of clubs interested in signing RB Leipzig central defender Josko Gvardiol, according to reports in Germany. The Croatian 20-year-old has emerged as one of Europe’s hottest defensive talents after excelling with his eye-catching displays in the Bundesliga and World Cup. He made 65 appearances for Leipzig since joining from Dinamo Zagreb and was a key cog in Croatia’s third-place finish in Qatar.
Spurs have been strongly linked with a move to west London but a move now seems unlikely after Todd Boehly secured Benoit Badiashile from AS Monaco for £ 33.6 million. Gvardiol’s contract at the Red Bull Arena expires in 2027 meaning any potential suitor will be forced to cough up close to the £ 115 million valuation of CIES Football Observatory.
