Lots of Tottenham Hotspur fans have discussed the potential incoming of Baptise Santamaria after the Angers midfielder was linked with a move to the north London club in the upcoming summer transfer window.
The 25-year old has been dubbed ‘the next N’Golo Kante’ by The Metro, as the French international plays in a similar position, and Brendan Rodgers says that he is looking to improve his squad as per the article.
Comparing the two Frenchman in their respective leagues this season, Santamaria averages more tackles, shots, long and through balls per game than Kante, but the latter averages more interceptions, clearances, key passes and dribbles, according to Whoscored.
One supporter claimed that Santamaria was better than Eduardo Camavinga, and based off certain stats in Ligue 1 this campaign their case is somewhat justified. The former averages more interceptions, shots, key passes, dribbles, long and through balls, as per Whoscored.
These Lilywhites discussed the potential transfer of Santamaria on Twitter:
I’d take him

Thoughts are never heard of him before today.
Would much rather we go and buy a young CDM
my two preferences would be Soumare or Camavinga. Both are valued around £40m which could end up as a bargain..

Definitely a risk. However money is tight after this virus. For everyone. We need to get lucky on a signing or two
