Tottenham Prepare £5m Swoop for Bulgarian Playmaker

North London club are still splashing the cash from imminent sale of Bale to Madrid. 

Check in to Transfer Window: Done Deal Alerts

Tottenham Hotspur are set to continue their extraordinary recent spending spree by buying Botev Plovdiv attacking midfield player Todor Nedelev for £5 million this summer, according to reports in the Sun.

The north London club are on the verge of finally announcing the world-record transfer of playmaker Gareth Bale to Spanish giants Real Madrid for a whopping £103m, with that deal expected to be wrapped up by the end of this week.

And Tottenham head coach Andre Villas-Boas has already been busy splashing that cash in the close-season transfer window, with the Portuguese having recently concluded big-money deals for the likes of Brazil midfield player Paulinho, Valencia front man Roberto Soldado, Nacer Chadli and Etienne Capoue, with those purchases costing the club £60m.

However, Spurs’ spending has not stopped there, with the club to shortly complete the £30m signing of Anzhi Makhachkala wide man Willian, with Nedelev then expected to follow shortly after.

The 20-year-old, who plays in the ‘hole’, has been with Plovdiv since 2011, during which time the Bulgaria international has managed to find the back of the net on 18 occasions in his 65 appearances for the club in all competitions, including 15 strikes in his 57 league outings.

And with the creative playmaker believed to be keen to make the move to White Hart Lane this summer, Spurs should be able to wrap up a deal for the Bulgarian before the window closes on Sept 2.
