Tottenham: Spurs readying Yassine Bounou transfer bid
Tottenham are now readying a bid to sign Sevilla goalkeeper Yassine ‘Bono’ Bounou, according to reports.
The Lowdown: Spurs linked…
The north Londoners are looking for a long-term Hugo Lloris successor as he enters the final 17 months of his contract at Spurs.
Antonio Conte‘s favourite is currently sidelined through injury but has been criticised for some Premier League performances this season, leading to Fabio Paratici’s search for a goalkeeping heir.
Bono is one of the names to have been linked with a move to N17 with reports suggesting he is a firm transfer target for Tottenham.
The Latest: Tottenham plan Bono bid…
According to reports out of Spain, as shared by Sport Witness, the Lilywhites are planning to make a €20 million (£18m) offer for Bono.
It is claimed that Spurs are one of three teams set to lodge a bid for the Morocco international, who starred for his nation at the 2022 World Cup.
The Verdict: Perfect candidate?
There are few names who could filly replace Lloris considering his phenomenal tenure as Spurs number one overall.
The Frenchman has been a mainstay since joining from Lyon in 2012, but as the time nears to say goodbye, Bono could at least come as a safe pair of hands.
The 6 foot 4 shot stopper made a name for himself in Qatar, standing out as one of the keepers of the tournament with manager Walid Regragui calling Bono ‘one of the best‘ in world football.
As well as this, after his showings for Morocco, members of the media branded Sevilla’s keeper one of football’s ‘rising stars‘ as Bono swiftly rose to prominence.
£18 million for such a player would come as a real steal for Spurs but it remains to be seen if Sevilla are willing to accept.
