Tottenham Hotspur has entered the race to sign talented striker Nicolas Jackson
Tottenham Hotspur has entered the race to sign talented striker Nicolas Jackson to thwart the plans of new Chelsea head coach Mauricio Pochettino. As reported by The Sun, Tottenham is considering making a late move for the Villarreal player, who has also piqued Pochettino’s interest in his new team.
According to the British tabloid, the 21-year-old striker has a £34m release clause in his contract with Villarreal, and Pochettino is pushing for Chelsea to pay that amount for his transfer.
The Guardian recently reported that Jackson has already agreed personal terms with Chelsea, indicating that his move to the London club could be very close to completion. However, The Sun assures that Tottenham is evaluating the possibility of making an offer for the young striker to avoid his arrival at Chelsea in this summer transfer window.
The Senegalese forward had an outstanding performance last season, scoring 13 goals and providing five assists in 38 games played in all competitions. His goalscoring ability and age make him a coveted target for several high-level clubs.
Tottenham are looking to strengthen their attack and consider Nicolas Jackson an attractive option. The London club is willing to compete with Chelsea for his transfer and could present an offer close to the release clause stipulated in his contract.
The battle for Jackson’s transfer promises to be intense, as both Chelsea and Tottenham are determined to secure the services of the young striker. It will be necessary to stay updated on the movements in the transfer market to see where Nicolás Jackson will end up playing next season.
