Tottenham fans urge Levy to splash out on Euro wonderkid after stunning display

By Harvey Byrne

Tottenham fans have called on Daniel Levy to splash out on Monaco wonderkid Kylian Mbappe after he impressed against Manchester City on Tuesday evening.

The 18-year-old striker is considered one of Europe’s hottest prospects after a highly impressive breakout year which has seen him return 12 goals and eight assists in 25 appearances.

Spurs are believed to be one of the clubs interested in him and the Mirror reported earlier in the month that they had joined fierce rivals Arsenal in the race for his signature.

Now, his midweek performance against City has done him no harm at all as he stunned the Premier League side with a goal just before half time in a match which saw him play 80 minutes.

Monaco ended up losing the game 5-3 against Pep Guardiola’s team, but it was the performance of Mbappe which caught the attention of Spurs fans on social media.

A number of supporters have asked for Levy to spend what is required in order to sign Mbappe, while some specifically said to smash the current £30million transfer record and spend £50million for the Frenchman.

Here are a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Tottenham splashed out £67million last summer on four players in Victor Wanyama, Vincent Janssen, Georges-Kevin N’Koudou and Moussa Sissoko.

Mbappe would certainly fit in with the club’s philosophy of signing young emerging talents, but Spurs aren’t known for their big spending and could be trumped by a rival club in the summer.

In other Tottenham transfer news, Spurs are closing in on this £16million transfer after a player triggered a reported clause on Sunday.
