Tottenham open talks with RB Leipzig over Josko Gvardiol transfer with Man Utd and Chelsea also keen | The Sun

TOTTENHAM have opened talks to sign RB Leipzig defender Josko Gvardiol, according to reports.

The 20-year-old enjoyed a good debut season with the German club following his £17million transfer from Dinamo Zagreb last summer.

According to Nabil Djellit, his strong season has caught the attention of Tottenham, who have opened talks over a potential transfer.

The club are desperate to sign a new centre-back, having been linked with Inter Milan duo Alessandro Bastoni and Milan Skriniar.

Gvardiol's qualities and experience are likely to be a nice fit for the Spurs squad dynamic after a season playing in a back three for Leipzig.

The Croatian ranked in the top five in the Bundesliga for interceptions and ranked highly in blocks and tackles made.
