Tottenham Hotspur: Spurs monitoring Atalanta star Joakim Maehle

Tottenham Hotspur: Spurs monitoring Atalanta star Joakim Maehle -Premier League News

Tottenham Hotspur are said to be monitoring Atalanta left-back Joakim Maehle and have identified him as a potential transfer target ahead of the summer, according to The Daily Mail.

The Lowdown: Maehle in demand

The 24-year-old first made the switch to Serie A from Genk in 2020 and has made 59 appearances to date for his current club, scoring three goals and providing four assists during that time, as per Transfermarkt.

The £15.3m-rated maestro is regarded as one of the world’s foremost attacking defenders right now, and with Antonio Conte being unable to nail down a regular left-sided player this season as a result of the injuries to both Matt Doherty and Sergio Reguilon, it’s no surprise that the north London giants are on the hunt for a suitable replacement.

The Latest: Paratici eyeing another Serie A raid

In a report published by The Daily Mail, it is claimed that Tottenham are ‘looking at’ Maehle, who has been ‘viewed as ideal’ for the manager’s 3-4-3 formation.

Spurs’ director of football Fabio Paratici already has established connections to Serie A, having signed Dejan Kulusevski and Rodrigo Bentancur from his former club Juventus in January, and this report has suggested that he will ‘return there’ to try and complete the signing of the 25-cap Denmark international.

The Verdict: An all-round player

The full-back will have no doubt gained plenty of interest from possible suitors thanks to his impressive performances for Denmark throughout Euro 2020 last summer, where they managed to reach the semi-final stage.

Maehle currently averages 2.21 blocks and 4.33 progressive passes per 90 minutes, via FBRef, showing his ability to impact a game at both ends of the pitch, and he was once hailed as a “fantastic” player by ITV pundit Ian Wright.

If Conte wants to assemble a new squad which has the potential to push for a Champions League place next season – and reports of the Italian wanting six new summer signings hints as such – the defender could prove to be a great addition, and one who could easily slot into that required wing-back position if Spurs can entice him to north London.
