Tottenham agents go after Danish starlet Faghir

Tottenham Hotspur have become the latest club to be linked with Danish starlet Wahid Faghir.

Leicester City have been credited with a long-standing interest in Faghir, with Brendan Rodgers’ side first mentioned as a possible suitor for the 17-year-old in January last year.

According to The Mirror, Tottenham are keen on signing the player now, with CIty already seeing a £1 million bid rejected.

Dutch giants Ajax are also being linked while Faghir’s stance is that he would like to move away from his native Denmark within a year’s time and he harbours hopes of playing for European royalty Real Madrid.

Faghir currently plays for boyhood club Vejle BK, who are in the top tier of Danish football.

He joined them as a six-year-old and the centre-forward has scored five times in 22 League matches this season.

Faghir has earned the moniker of ‘the next Zlatan Ibrahimovic’ with the comparison to the Sweden international being made in 2018 when he signed a new deal with the club.

He has since penned a new deal with Velje that expires in December.

“Faghir is a real striker and he possesses many parts in his game,” Velje talent manager Steen Thychosen said in October 2018.

“He is fast, technically good, football intelligent and he also takes part in the defensive work.

“Wahid has many strengths and then he has a huge belief in his own abilities.

“There is a bit of ‘Zlatan’ about him, because he performs with an indomitable self-confidence for training and fighting.

“You can not see that he is only 15 years-old and played the first league matches already last autumn.”

Faghir has been capped twice at Denmark Under-21 level, making his debut on Thursday.
