Having recently left Celtic to take charge at Tottenham, Postecoglou has wasted no time in identifying Furuhashi as his primary target for the summer transfer window, according to The Sun.
Furuhashi, who joined Celtic on a four-year deal for a fee of £4.5 million in July 2021, has enjoyed an impressive spell in Scotland. He has made 56 appearances for the club, finding the back of the net 39 times.
