Aptly dubbed a midfield “monster” by one-time Denmark and Derby County midfielder Morten Bisgaard, Tottenham could nicely have a brand new Modric within the type of Hojbjerg.

This time, although, Levy should look to garner a charge bigger than £30m, having value simply half that (£15m) in the summertime of 2020.

AND in different information, Spurs missed out on Conte’s new Bastoni in “aggressive” £26m gem – simply think about him and Romero…
