The Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern are very excited at recent reports from Sky Sports hinting at a potential signing. According to Sky Sports, the Lilywhites are scouting Inter Milan midfield Geoffrey Kondogbia, who is on loan at Valencia, with a view to a move for the midfielder.
Kondogbia has enjoyed a fantastic season in Spain, with his side impressing in La Liga, and so it will be no real surprise to learn that Tottenham fans appear to be behind this deal. Our landlord recently ran a poll discussing this very topic, and a vast majority of Tottenham fans – 95% to be exact – voted in favour of the move, with just 5% voting to the contrary.
That’s close to a unanimous verdict, and so it’s clear that the move would go down well amongst the Tottenham faithful.
There is certainly space for him in the Tottenham first team. A powerful midfielder, he’d add an aggressive edge to a midfield that lacks that at present, with much more of a focus on technical skill and quality from the likes of Harry Winks and Mousa Dembele. Currently, in addition to Winks and Dembele, Pochettino only really has Eric Dier and Victor Wanyama to call upon, and so there is room for another option.
Tottenham will play a lot of games in the second-half of the season, particularly if they continue to impress in Europe, and so more bodies are absolutely essential.
Kondogbia certainly has the quality, though it remains to be seen when, or indeed if, Tottenham make their move.
