Tottenham Hotspur are being linked with a move for West Bromwich Albion defender Jonas Olsson.
The Daily Star claims Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas has set his sights on the 21-cap Sweden international, and is considering whether to meet the £3.5million release clause in the player’s contract.
Olsson would replace Benoit Assou-Ekotto at White Hart Lane, according to the paper, with the 29-year-old Cameroonian international set to have a medical in Turkey ahead of a move to Fenerbache.
Villas-Boas is also set to welcome Danny Rose back to the club following his loan spell with Sunderland, giving the north London outfit a number of options for next season.
Olsson certainly has the versatility to fit into the Spurs side, with the former Landskrona BoIS starlet able to play either at centre back or left back.
And, the defender has admitted he’d love to play in London in the past, opening the door to a potential move away from the Baggies.
“I love the mix of football and London and the feeling when you’re down there. That’s the ambition in the future,” he said, according to the paper.
