Spurs make late move for another Belgian star

Simon Lloyd

Marouane Fellaini’s days as the Premier League’s only afro-sporting Belgian could be numbered.

Entering the final hours of the transfer window, Tottenham are reportedly looking to bring another Belgian international to White Hart Lane.

With the likes of Jan Vertonghen, Moussa Dembele and Toby Alderweireld already part of Mauricio Pochettino’s squad, Sky Sports have suggested that the club have placed a bid for Axel Witsel.

The former Benfica man is currently a Zenit St. Petersburg player, but with an €18m bid being placed, he could be swapping Russia for London in the very near future.

After the capture of Heung-Min Son last week, it seems Spurs’ spending isn’t quite done yet.
