Report: Tottenham have just made contact over signing player from Chelsea in the last few days

Tottenham have reportedly made contact in the last few days over signing Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen.

Calciomercato.it claimed earlier this week on Wednesday that Spurs made contact with the player’s agent within the last few hours.

It is understood that London rivals Spurs, along with German giants Bayern Munich, have both initiated discussions with the 25-year-old’s representatives.

The report adds there is still an attempt for the Denmark international to extend his contract at Stamford Bridge, which is currently due to expire at the end of the season. However, Chelsea will lose the talented centre-back unless he signs a new deal.

Fabrizio Romano recently reported the Blues are refusing to increase their current offer that’s on the table to Christensen.

The Spurs links to Christensen make sense given their manager previously worked alongside him.

Italian boss Antonio Conte coached the ball-playing centre-half for a year at Chelsea, giving him 40 appearances across all competitions during just one season together.

Chelsea exit will really sting

Christensen’s exit will be a painful one in the summer, especially if he ends up joining a Premier League and London rival on a free transfer.

Blues supporters should be praying that a solution can be reached between all parties for him to stay.

He’s such a reliable defender at the back for the Blues, and slots it superbly well into Thomas Tuchel’s side.

There is no doubt he’d improve the Spurs defence tenfold because his game has come on leaps and bounds in the last year.

With his prime years still ahead, Chelsea could end up making a huge mistake.
