Who are you, 18-year-old Tottenham’s ’40 billion’…Wonter Kid, who smashed Barcelona!

Tottenham Hotspur has loaded up a large amount of money to recruit a teenage Belgian midfielder who is drawing attention from big European clubs.

The Sun, a British media outlet, reported on the 26th (Korea time), “Tottenham is preparing for a transfer fee of 25 million pounds (about 41.1 billion won) to recruit Belgian wonderkid Artur Vermiren (Royal Antwerp).”

Born in 2005, Vermeeren is a talent of the Antwerp youth system. He is only 18 years old now, but since his professional debut in the main league from last season, he has secured the starting position of Antwerp and is starting the entire league this season. 헤라카지노

Vermeerren, who plays mostly as a defensive midfielder, has made 64 appearances for Antwerp’s first team so far, scoring three goals and eight assists. He helped Antwerp win the league for the first time in 66 years last season and made headlines by scoring the first goal against Barcelona, one of the best clubs in the world, in this season’s UEFA Champions League group stage.

Tottenham legend center back Toby Alderweireld, who is currently playing for Antwerp, also praised the talent of his Belgian junior, saying, “Bermiren has tremendous potential.”

Vermiren, who proved his potential, immediately attracted the attention of big European clubs. According to the media, not only Tottenham but also Arsenal, Chelsea, Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, and Barcelona are drawing attention, and some clubs have sent scouts to observe Vermiren’s play in more detail.

Amid the heated competition between big clubs for Vermeeren, the media claimed that Tottenham was leading the recruitment race.

“Tottenham aims to pay a remarkable £25 million transfer fee to the teenage midfielder Vermeer, who made a sensation in Belgium in January,” the media said. “They have risen to the lead in the race as they want a deal similar to the one that recruited Destiny Udogi 18 months ago.”

Tottenham acquired Udogi, a fullback born in 2002, who was playing for Udinese last summer for 18 million euros. At that time, Udogi did not immediately join Tottenham but was loaned to Udinese for one season.

Udo-ki, who has more experience in Udinese, has been reborn as a key player after joining Tottenham ahead of the 2023/24 season. This season, Udo-ki extended his contract with Tottenham until 2030 as he played in 15 games and scored one goal and two assists.

Tottenham expected Vermiren to join the club after growing up with opportunities to play in Antwerp, his current team, like Udo-ki, rather than joining the team immediately and facing fierce competition.

Meanwhile, as the winter transfer market, which opens on January 1 next year, approaches, Tottenham has connected with many players, including Vermeeren, drawing attention to which players to introduce to its fans. Currently, Tottenham is looking for a new face that can help the fight in the second half of this season, including France’s 190-centimeter tall center back Jean-Claire Todibo (OGNIS).
