Spurs in for Dutch wonderkid

Tottenham Hotspur are looking to sign 16-year-old Dutch wonderkid, Lamare Bogarde, this summer, according to Football Insider.

Despite the well-documented impact that COVID-19 has had on the club’s recruitment team, and the ongoing uncertainty surrounding the Premier League, Spurs are thought to be keen to secure the starlet’s transfer from Feyenoord.

Bogarde, a Dutch youth international, usually plays at centre-back, but is equally comfortable at pushing into defensive midfield.

Borussia Dortmund, Schalke, Juventus and AC Milan are just some of the clubs that are also thought to be tracking him.

Spurs fans will hope that Lamare finds more success in the Premier League than his uncle, Winston, whose four year stint at Chelsea became infamous after making only nine league appearances.

Despite the club’s attempts to sell him, and demoting him to the reserve and youth teams, Winston Bogarde refused to move due to other clubs being unable to match his £40,000 a week salary. He said: “This world is about money, so when you are offered those millions you take them. Few people will ever earn so many. I am one of the few fortunates who do. I may be one of the worst buys in the history of the Premiership but I don’t care.”
