Tottenham Hotspur are said by the Guardian to be interested in Ragnar Sigurdsson, after being impressed by his performances for Iceland at Euro 2016.

Spurs have had scouts at the international tournament, and Sigurdsson has been one of the players to catch their eye.

Sigurdsson currently plays for FC Krasnodar in Russia, but his performances at Euro 2016 suggest he could be capable of playing at a higher level.

The centre-back has been one of the stars in Iceland’s team, and he has helped his nation qualify for the quarter-finals of the competition.

Sigurdsson scored Iceland’s first goal against England, and he also made a wonderful challenge late on to deny Jamie Vardy an opportunity.

Tottenham have been impressed by the defender’s combative streak, and could look to submit an offer to Krasnodar in the near future.

If Sigurdsson did join Tottenham, he would likely arrive as fourth choice at the White Hart Lane club.

Tottenham already have Jan Vertonghen, Toby Alderweireld and Kevin Wimmer to pick from at centre-back, meaning Sigurdsson would face strong competition if he was to move to the North London club.
