Tottenham have a serious interest in Denmark’s World Cup starlet Andreas Skov Olsen ahead of the January transfer window, according to reports. Spurs are keeping a close eye on the attacker in Qatar, alongside several other transfer targets.
Skov Olsen has impressed at Club Brugge and has attracted interest from some of Europe’s top clubs. The winger’s form has seen him become a regular for Denmark over the last 18 months, scoring eight times in 24 caps.
The 22-year-old has been linked with a move ahead of January and Spurs are one of a few Premier League clubs believed to be interested in his services. A departure from Brugge would see him leave the club he only joined at the start of the year.
Spurs are keeping a keen eye on Skov Olsen’s performances in Qatar. The former Bologna and Nordsjaelland prospect underwhelmed in the goalless draw with Tunisia and was an unused sub in Denmark’s 2-1 defeat by France on Saturday.

According to Belgian publication Het Nieuwsblad, the north Londoners have a ‘concrete interest’ in Skov Olsen. Managing director of football Fabio Paratici is a big fan of the player, who has been likened to Dejan Kulusevski.
Spurs are expected to be busy in the January transfer window despite spending over £100million in the summer. A new attacker is likely to arrive as Lucas Moura could apparently depart.
Paratici also harbours an interest in USA midfielder Weston McKennie, who starred against England at the World Cup last week. The box-to-box 24-year-old has played the full 90 minutes just three times for Juventus in Serie A this term.
McKennie could therefore seek a fresh start somewhere else, with Spurs having long been linked with a deal. Their interest spans back to McKennie’s spell with Bundesliga side Schalke.

Spurs boss Antonio Conte has admitted he wants to make the most of the January market in a bid to rid his side of the inconsistency that has plagued their Premier League campaign so far.
“You know very well that if you want to be competitive and if you want to be really considered a title contender, or considered a team to win a trophy, you need players with great quality,” the Italian said earlier this month..
“You see the example of Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea and these teams are really strong. Strong squad with great quality.”
He added: “You need patience, you need the transfer market to improve the squad, the quality of your squad.”
