Exclusive: Tyrese Campbell in Tottenham transfer triangle after £10m earlier bid from rivals
Stoke City striker Tyrese Campbell could be involved in a Tottenham transfer triangle if they submit a bid for Josh King, Football Insider has learned.
The Bournemouth forward’s future is up in the air after he came close to joining Man United in January and his club are assessing replacements.
A recruitment source has told Football Insider that Eddie Howe’s side are weighing up another move for Campbell after a £10million for him earlier this year that was knocked back by Stoke.
Sky Sports revealed last week that King is wanted by four of the top six clubs in the Premier League this summer.
That quartet is believed to include Tottenham, who are keen for a proven alternative to talismanic goal machine Harry Kane.
King, 28, has one year left on his Bournemouth contract and is likely to leave this summer.
