Djed Spence admits he dreams of playing Premier League football as Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur contact and speak to the £15m loanee from Nottingham Forest The mirror.
Of course this is not the case Necessary mean the raging right-back is entering the final weeks of his City Ground career.
Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal and Antonio Conte’s Tottenham are both looking to sign Spence this summer. But who says the England Under-21 international can’t play top-flight football while wearing Garibaldi red for the first time in his career?
After all, no champion team has accumulated more points in the last ten games than Nottingham Forest (21). Maintain this form and the two-time European champions can return to the promised land in August.
“I always want to push myself and play with the best players and the best team,” explains Spence, who was sacked by Fulham as a youngster and is now a transfer target for Bayern Munich.
“Of course it’s an ambition of mine to play in the Premier League. I try to stay calm. I don’t read too much into it (the transfer rumours).
“At the end of the day, I’m just here to enjoy my football. I have to stay focused, have tunnel vision and play well on the pitch.”
Is Djed Spence going to the Premier League?
Whether Nottingham Forest can sign Spence on a permanent basis in the summer window remains to be seen. Given his market value, which has risen to around £15million in recent months, it is believed that promotion alone will see a long-term stay at the City Ground.
Accordingly The mirror (March 13, page 68) Both Arsenal and Tottenham inquired about Spence’s availability a couple of weeks ago.
Reports linking the explosive, attacking 21-year-old with a move to north London will raise more questions about the future of Emerson Royal, Hector Bellerin and Cedric Soares.
“It was one of the best performances from the right-back I’ve seen in a long time. A very long time” said a stunned Ian Wright after Spence inspired Forest’s 1-0 FA Cup triumph over Arsenal in January.
“When we talk about right-backs playing at an incredible level, we’re talking about Reece James and Trent (Alexander-Arnold).
“But I haven’t seen such a combative, technical, daring performance for a long time.”
