Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea are keen to sign Rafael Leao.
The Portugal international is on Spurs’ radar, according to Calciomercato
However, Chelsea have also been heavily linked.
And after 90 min as covered by HITC sportthe west Londoners are considering a £104m offer for the AC Milan attacker.
But according to journalist Simon Phillips, the Stamford Bridge team could make an early attempt to sign him in January.
He told Give Me Sport: “One of them on the shortlist is obviously Rafael Leao. I think the intention was to sign him in the summer but at the moment they see an opportunity given his contract situation.”
It’s something Tottenham need to look into, especially with Chelsea considering a winter offer.
Son Heung-min has been terribly off the rails for Antonio Conte’s side this season and excellent as Harry Kane is, he needs someone to relieve him of the goalscoring burden.
The Lilywhites man won’t stop scoring for the north Londoners, but for the same reason he can’t do it all himself.
And as long as Son struggles, Conte could be tempted to add another goalscorer during the upcoming January transfer window.
