Tottenham reportedly submit concrete offer for Keisuke Honda

Tottenham Hotspur are said to have made a bid for AC Milan's Japan international.

According to a report from Italian website Tuttomercatoweb, Tottenham Hotspur have submitted a concrete offer for AC Milan midfielder Keisuke Honda.

The 29-year-old has played 46 times for Milan since arriving in 2013, and he has scored eight goals and provided seven assists in that time.

Prior to that he impressed at Russian club CSKA Moscow, scoring 28 goals and providing 29 assists in 127 appearances and the winger is now said to be a key target for Tottenham this summer.

Reports earlier this month from TMW claimed a Spurs bid was imminent and now the same website states that Mauricio Pochettino’s side have made their move.

There is no doubt Tottenham could do with more width and goal-threat in their side and Honda would bring both to White Hart Lane.

Predominantly a right winger, Honda can also play on the opposite flank or as an attacking midfielder if required and that versatility means he could be a worthy addition to the Spurs squad, especially if players like Aaron Lennon are ultimately moved on.

Honda may also be an enticing target for Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy due to his fame in his homeland and the income from shirt sales that would undoubtedly come if the Japan international arrived in North London.

The TMW report does not say what Milan think of Tottenham’s alleged offer, only that Spurs have something on the table. But with time running out in this transfer window expect Levy to secure another deal or two while he can.
