Loads of Tottenham fans have been reacting to some transfer news, as Sky Sports claim the club want to sign Geoffrey Kondogbia this summer.
According to Sky Sports, Spurs’ chief scout Steve Hitchen is a ‘long-term admirer’ of Kondogbia, and Jose Mourinho wants to strengthen his squad this summer. The report claims Hitchen has been eyeing the French colossus as a replacement for Mousa Dembele since 2017.
Mourinho wants to add a defensive or ‘positional’ midfielder, according to the report, and Kondogbia certainly fits the bill. Standing at 6 foot 2 and making 2.4 tackles per game in La Liga for Valencia this season (a number that rises to a whopping 3.6 per game in Champions League action), the former Inter man seems like the perfect Nemanja Matic-type player that Mourinho loves to add to every squad he manages.
Plenty of fans have been reacting to the links on Twitter, with one concerned that he is no fitter than Tanguy Ndombele while others seem delighted by the links, hailing the 27 year-old as ‘absolute class’. Check out some of their responses down below…
…..looks about the same fitness level as Ndembele judging by that photo!
