Round Up: Boro Revive Move For Left Back, Leeds Set £20m Asking Price For Spurs Target And Wednesday Open Talks To Sign Midfielder

Knudsen

Middlesbrough are keen on securing the free transfer of Ipswich left-back Jonas Knudsen, according to reports in the local media.

Boro tried to sign the Danish international last summer before a move fell through, but the Teessiders are now likely to sign the 26-year-old when his contract expires at the end of next month.

Leeds have reportedly set a £20m asking price for winger Jack Clarke. Tottenham, Crystal Palace and a number of other Premier League clubs are said to be keen on recruiting the 18-year-old.

The teenager made 25 appearances in all competitions last season after making his senior debut against Brentford back in October last year and his excellent form since has put him on the radar of top sides like Tottenham.

In light of Sheffield United winning promotion to the Premier League this season the pressure is really on for their steel city rivals to follow suit and Sheffield Wednesday have responded and have opened talks with Tottenham over signing Josh Onomah on a permanent basis.

The 22-year-old spent last campaign on loan at Hillsborough and manager Steve Bruce has been impressed with the midfielder’s performances despite the player only making 15 appearances in the Championship.

Whether Spurs will be prepared to let one their youngsters move on remains to be seen especially when you consider that through the past 3 transfer windows the club has signed only one player. That player is the Brazilian ace Lucas Moura who joined Tottenham back in January of 2018 and has become a key man in Mauricio Pochettino’s squad as he proved with his match winning hat-trick against Ajax in the Champions League semifinal second leg.

From the statements made by the Spurs boss in recent times it seems unlikely he will be prepared to sit through another summer transfer window without adding some quality to his squad and some much needed depth in key positions like midfield after the departure of Moussa Dembele to Qatar in January.
