Tottenham submit contract offer to Lutsharel Geertruida

Premier League heavyweights Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly offered a contract to Feyenoord defender Lutsharel Geertruida, a target for Liverpool.

According to a report by Caught Offside, Lutsharel Geertruida is the subject of interest from Tottenham Hotspur. The versatile Feyenoord defender is also a target for Liverpool, with the Eredivisie giants demanding around €20-25 million to part ways with him in the summer transfer window. Meanwhile, the North London giants have submitted a contract to the 23-year-old.

The rapid rise of Lutsharel Geertruida

Lutsharel Geertruida has been a solid performer for Feyenoord since breaking into the first-team squad at Feyenoord. The Dutchman has been with the Eredivisie outfit for over a decade, arriving from Sparta Rotterdam in July 2012. And he has not looked back since making his senior bow.

The 23-year-old has been a mainstay at the back for Feyenoord in the last few seasons, going from strength to strength during this period. Geertruida contributed to 14 goals in 48 outings across all competitions in the 2023/24 season, finding the back of the net nine times while providing five assists.

Meanwhile, Geertruida has been a regular in his national squad since making his debut for the Netherlands in March 2023. The versatile Dutch defender has captured the attention of several high-profile clubs across Europe with his exploits for Feyenoord, with a move to the Premier League on the cards. Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool are among his prospective suitors.

A man in demand

Tottenham’s interest in Lutsharel Geertruida is understandable. The North London giants are scouring the market for a right-back and a centre-back heading into the summer transfer window. And the Feyenoord defender can be a one-stop solution for Tottenham. Recent reports have claimed that they lead the race to sign him, with the club submitting a contract offer to him.

As for Liverpool, the Reds also want a right-back amid a thought process that Trent Alexander-Arnold will play as a midfielder next season. More importantly, they want a centre-back after losing Joel Matip as a free agent. Geertruida is thus a viable target for Liverpool, with his price tag of €20-25 million making him an appealing prospect.

Tottenham and Liverpool have the funds to cough up €20-25 million and secure Lutsharel Geertruida’s services in the summer transfer window. It will be interesting to see how the 23-year-old Dutchman responds to Tottenham’s contract offer.
