Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to give their reaction to speculation linking the club with a move for Celta de Vigo midfielder Pape Cheikh Diop.

According to The Daily Mail, Premier League outfit Tottenham are interested in signing Diop from Spanish club Celta in the summer transfer window.

It has been reported that Spurs have made a bid of £10 million for the 20-year-old midfielder, although the same publication claimed on Friday that the youngster has a release clause in his contract close to £25 million.

Diop made five starts and 11 substitute appearances in La Liga for Celta during the 2016-17 campaign, scoring one goal in the process, according to WhoScored.

The youngster is a very talented and hugely promising midfielder, and Diop would be a good signing for Tottenham in the long run.

Although some fans are pleased with Spurs’ (reported) interest in the former Spain Under-19 international, there are others who have raised concern as to why the North London outfit are signing young players from other clubs instead of giving chances to those already at the academy.
