Tottenham in the battle to sign 27-year-old Rangers left-back

Spurs are reportedly interested in signing Rangers defender Borna Barisic in the summer. The 27-year-old defender has had a pretty good campaign with Steven Gerrard’s side so far, netting twice while providing 14 assists in 37 games across all tournaments so now.

Spurs boss Jose Mourinho wants a new left-back as a priority this summer, and the club are interested in signing Borna, who would cost £22m. The report also claims that Tottenham are willing to let go of Danny Rose before the expiration of his deal in 2021, while also casting doubt over Jan Vertonghen’s future.

Spurs could well need to sign a new left-back if both Rose and Vertonghen leave and Croatia international could be an excellent signing to their squad. The 27-year-old defender has done well for Rangers this season, and he could well be a regular starter for Croatia at Euro 2020.

The Scottish club may prefer to keep Borna, but if they can’t, they could make a pretty hefty profit from his sale, with 90min explaining that he cost only £2.2m back in 2018, but could now leave for as much as ten times that amount.
