Tottenham leading Man Utd in race for Palace defender

Marc Guehi news

Guehi to Tottenham?

Tottenham Hotspur are leading Manchester United in the race to sign Crystal Palace defender Marc Guehi this summer.

The north London giants have had a disappointing season in the Premier League and they are currently in a top-four battle.

It is uncertain whether they will qualify for next season's Champions League, but the hierarchy are expected to make summer signings.

A new centre-back is one of the top priorities and Football Insider claim that they are looking to pursue Guehi from Roy Hodgson's side.

The London heavyweights are ready to spend £50m on him and it is claimed that they are currently leading the race over United.

Meanwhile, Chelsea have a first refusal clause on the defender, but they seem unlikely to re-sign him ahead of the next campaign.

The Blues have already invested on three new centre-backs this term and may not pursue another in the summer transfer window.

Chelsea's main focus could be on landing a marquee centre-forward.
