According to The Sun, Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal are among the clubs interested in signing Harry Maguire from Leicester City in the summer transfer window.

Manchester United are also reported to be interested in securing the services of the 26-year-old central defender, and so are Chelsea, if they can get their transfer ban suspended by the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

According to the British tabloid, Leicester will demand as much as £60m as transfer fee for the England international.

 

Leaving Leicester City?

Maguire is a very good and accomplished central defender, and the England international will be a smart signing for Arsenal, Tottenham or United in the summer transfer window.

The former Sheffield United and Hull City centre-back is at a very good age to make the step up, although £60m does sound too much for him.

Mauricio Pochettino future

Meanwhile, Mauricio Pochettino has suggested that he could leave Tottenham Hotspur at the end of the season.

Pochettino has guided Tottenham to the Champions League final this season, and the North London outfit are also pretty much guaranteed to finish in the top four of the Premier League.

Pochettino told The Guardian: “I am open to everything. What I am not open to is starting a new chapter with no plan, with no clear idea, with not being transparent and being able to tell our fans what is our objective, to stop talking about perception, talk about reality – because if not, it is going to be difficult.”
