Many Tottenham Hotspur supporters have flocked to social media in order to respond to a Twitter post from @thespursweb which shared a report claiming the club are showing an interest in Marcus Forss.
According to journalist Dean Jones (via Eurosport), chairman Daniel Levy is personally trying to make sure the Lilywhites don’t miss out on the player’s signature, with Borussia Dortmund also said to be keen on him.
Forss currently plays his football for Brentford in the Championship and in 13 appearances, most of which have come as a substitute, he has contributed five goals (as per Transfermarkt).
How have these Spurs fans reacted to the reports linking their club with Marcus Forss?
top top player, he has been continuously linked with Borussia Dortmund too, would be a great signing.

It’s clear from the above responses that most of these Spurs fans seem excited by the prospect of the Finland centre-forward potentially joining their club at some point in the future. According to Transfermarkt, the player is currently valued at £1.62m and he is renowned for his finishing ability and ability to shoot from distance (as per WhoScored).
With that in mind, perhaps the reaction to this rumour is not a surprise, and with Dortmund sniffing around, perhaps there is more than meets the eye with Forss despite his lack of starts for Brentford so far this term.
