Tottenham: Fabrizio Romano shares Piero Hincapie transfer update

Tottenham: Fabrizio Romano shares Piero Hincapie transfer update - Premier League News

Fabrizio Romano has shared a Tottenham Hotspur transfer update involving Bayer Leverkusen defender Piero Hincapie.

The Lowdown: Spurs target centre-back…

The north Londoners are reliably believed to be targeting a central defender heading into the summer window.

Crystal Palace star Marc Guehi and Inter Milan defender Alessandro Bastoni are rumoured to be on the agenda as Antonio Conte‘s side look to sign two new centre-halves.

The Premier League top-four chasers have conceded more goals than any side in the top ten, making the need for reinforcements all the more prevalent.

The Latest: Romano shares Hincapie to Spurs claim…

Leverkusen defender Hincapie has also been linked with a move to N17 with Romano, a reliable transfer source, now backing claims that Tottenham are eyeing a move this summer.

He explained:

“Understand there’s no release clause included in Piero Hincapié new contract with Bayer Leverkusen.

“Many clubs remain keen on signing the Ecuadorian CB in the summer including Tottenham — but Bayer Leverkusen will decide the price, no buy out clause.”

The Verdict: Great option…

After signing a new deal, Hincapie will almost certainly be a more expensive option.

The Ecuador international has been a revelation in Germany for Leverkusen, earning praise for his sky high potential even if he is still a bit ‘raw’.

Bundesliga expert Kevin Hatchard claims that Hincapie is a ‘tremendous’ central defender, albeit a work in progress, and we believe Spurs could secure a real gem with his signing.

He starred for Ecuador at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar last year, averaging their joint-highest rate of tackles per 90 and second highest rate of clearances over three tournament starts (WhoScored).

Hincapie’s brother, according to the player himself, has also told the centre-back that he is ‘a lot like’ Spurs defender Cristian Romero.

There are certainly incentives to make a move given Leverkusen were swift to move for the player at first glance after spotting huge potential.
