It’s not a secret that the Lillywhites need a central midfielder to cover them this season. Victor Wanyama is crocked with another injury whilst Harry Winks hasn’t played in a long time. That only leaves Eric Dier and Mousa Dembele, who are both going to be lacking in preparation after making it to the World Cup semi-finals with Belgium and England. This leaves Mauricio Pochettino needing a new midfielder and Kondogbia could be that man.
The 27-year-old Frenchman has been at Valencia for just one season, having spent the 2017/18 season on-loan before making that move a permanent one just one month ago. Now, though, he could be set for yet another move as Tottenham have opened talks for the midfielder. In his career, the ex-Inter Milan commander has won the U20 World Cup with France and he’ll be hoping to add to his trophy cabinet with Mauricio Pochettino and co.
