Spurs could merely be a stepping stone to Chelsea move for Vlad Chiriches…
The agent of Tottenham’s Vlad Chiriches says Chelsea are monitoring the defender and will make a move for him if he is a success in England.
Chiriches joined Spurs for £7.8m from Steau Bucharest in the summer and has made just one appearance for the North London outfit after a work permit application delayed his full debut.
The 23-year-old is the captain of the Romanian national team and is highly rated in his homeland.
Ahead of Chelsea’s visit to Romania to face Steau in the Champions League on Tuesday, Chiriches’ agent Victor Becali has revealed that Blues boss Jose Mourinho is a fan of his client and says the West London outfit will bid for the player if he impresses at White Hart Lane.
“If he has one or two good seasons at Tottenham, Chelsea will be willing to pay a large sum to buy Chiriches,” Becali told Romanian website Sport.ro.
“Mourinho says he has been aware of him since he was at Real Madrid.”
