According to Gazzetta dello Sport, LOSC Lille glovesman Mike Maignan can be signed for under €20 million (£17 million) amid interest from Tottenham.
Earlier this week, L’Equipe revealed that Spurs are keen on the 25-year-old shot-stopper as they eye a successor to Hugo Lloris.
Now, when revealing that AC Milan are also keen, Gazzetta dello Sport claim that Maignan can be signed for under £17 million.
Given the fact he’s just 25, and is also a France international, that would represent something of a bargain for Tottenham.
Maignan is a fantastic goalkeeper, and his statistics in Ligue 1 this season are nothing short of incredible.
Furthermore, it would also represent a bargain given what the French side quoted Chelsea for Maignan’s services back in August.
Before the Blues signed Edouard Mendy, Sky Sports claimed that they wanted the Cayenne-born keeper.
However, at that time, LOSC Lille were asking for £27 million.
Perhaps the financial impacts of COVID-19 have forced them to lower their asking price – however, the exact reason is unknown.
What is for certain is that Tottenham would be getting a bargain if they signed Maignan for £17 million or under.
At 25 years of age, he could realistically be their No.1 for a decade.
