I swear I feel I’ve written more about Cameron Carter-Vickers in the last few weeks than I have any other player on the fringe of the first team. It’s weird! But here’s another story about yet another club that’s interested in taking the young English-American central defender off of Tottenham Hotspur’s hands.
This time, its another club from the continent — Club Brugge joins Anderlecht as two non-English clubs who are impressed by CCV’s loan performance at Bournemouth this season and are considering bringing him in. Belgian website Voetbalkrant doesn’t say much — just that Brugge is also interested — but notes in particular the interest of Anderlecht, saying that it could be a “competitive battle” between the two, and that’s before Newcastle and Bournemouth, who also like Cam, weigh in.
The last time it was noted that Cam could command a £10m fee, which feels insane considering he’s barely played for the first team at all and has been perpetually on loan for the past several seasons. That would be an incredible price in this market, and I’m kind of skeptical that we’d get anything close to that in real terms. But hey, when you’ve got two Belgian clubs competing with two English clubs for a player, who knows what can happen?
Regardless, it sure looks like Cam is gone and Spurs will be getting some money for him, and that’s almost certainly good for both him and the club.
