Tottenham Hotspur are targeting Japan international Daichi Kamada alongside Borussia Dortmund, according to reports.
The Lowdown: Nuno target…
Spurs links to the Eintracht Frankfurt midfielder are not anything new with reports from 2021 suggesting they were interested during ex-boss Nuno Espirito Santo’s reign.
The Bundesliga playmaker was apparently being targeted by Nuno, AC Milan, Sevilla and Watford last year but Kamada’s contract situation has now handed the club a golden opportunity.
Lilywhites head coach Antonio Conte and sporting director Fabio Paratici have seemingly re-joined the race for him, as per a new report from Germany.
The Latest: Spurs re-join Kamada race…
As per Bild (via Sport Witness), Spurs now have Kamada on their radar with his current deal set to expire in 2023.
Dortmund have also taken interest in the 26-year-old with both sides ‘putting out feelers’ over the Asian attacker.
Eintracht want to tie him down with fresh terms, but as his contract talks stall, it is believed Spurs could strike an extremely bitter blow by taking Kamada to the Premier League for nothing – despite the fact he has a market value of €30 million (£26m).
The Verdict: Go for it?
Signing Kamada on a pre-contract agreement in January would be a brilliant move by Spurs.
He is currently Eintracht’s top goal scorer in the Bundesliga with seven and ranks as their second-best performer by average match rating – backing just how much of an asset he would be (WhoScored).
Members of the media have raved over Kamada as a ‘joy to watch’ and ‘incredible talent’ so Conte’s side should at least attempt to beat the competition to his signature.
