Sky Sports journalist Lyall Thomas, has been speaking on the Last Word On Spurs’ YouTube channel to discuss all things transfer-related.
With just a matter of days remaining, the football journalist provided an insight into a player in which Tottenham Hotspur have shown some interest in.
Who would you rather see Spurs sign?
However, Thomas revealed the north London side are also showing interest in the winger, who has been nicknamed as the ‘Georgian Messi’.
Discussing the possibility of Spurs making a late move for the Rubin Kazan forward, Thomas had the following to say on the matter.
“I know they’re also interested in Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, who plays for Rubin Kazan in Russia. Georgian player, 20-year-old.
“I think it’s interest at the moment. I mean, the last update I had with it was a few days ago, which is that it was still in its early stages.
“The expectation is that Adama Traore is the one they want at the moment. Things can change very quickly at this point in time. So, you know, let’s see over the next few days, but only interest at the moment, I think, in terms of Kvaratskhelia.”
TIF Thoughts on Khvicha Kvaratskhelia to Spurs…
Despite this, we struggle to see Spurs making a real effort to sign him this summer given they have already acquired young winger Bryan Gil.
Gil has similarities to Kvaratskhelia in the sense of them both playing in the same position, so we find it difficult to see Spurs limiting Gil’s opportunities by bringing in a similar style of player.
However, we are interested to see how far Spurs are willing to go in their reported attempts to sign Adama Traore this summer, with Spanish reports suggesting a fee of €46m (£39m) has been agreed.
