Tottenham Hotspur are allegedly interested in securing a deal for RB Leipzig attacker Emil Forsberg during the summer transfer window.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho is reportedly an admirer of RB Leipzig forward Emil Forsberg.

While Spurs pushed through two major additions during the January window, the North Londoners are expected to be active in the market later in 2020.

A move for Forsberg could be in the offing, with the Sweden international's agent suggesting that Mourinho is a big fan of the playmaker.

Speaking to Expressen, Hasan Cetinkaya said: "It's nothing that surprises me at all. Mourinho is a great legend who has worked with Victor Lindelof as well.

"Together with Victor, Forsberg is the biggest star in the national team and has caused total chaos in Leipzig. I'm not surprised. I can say this; everyone will soon see what will happen to Emil Forsberg."

The 28-year-old, who has also been linked with Manchester United, has contributed eight goals and three assists from 23 outings in the Bundesliga and Champions League this season.
