Tottenham: Spurs chasing AS Monaco defender Axel Disasi

Tottenham: Spurs chasing AS Monaco defender Axel Disasi -Premier League News

Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing AS Monaco defender Axel Disasi, according to a report from Marca (via Sport Witness). 

The lowdown: Hot prospect

Signed by Reims for €15m (£13m) in 2020 (Transfermarkt), the Frenchman has so far spent his entire career in his homeland and is enjoying an upwards career trajectory.

Previously linked with a move to Spurs’ north London rivals Arsenal, Disasi has gone from strength to strength in Ligue 1 and has now amassed 92 appearances in the French top flight.

As Spurs manager Antonio Conte looks to add additional centre-back options to Cristian Romero, Eric Dier, Ben Davies and Davinson Sanchez, the 24-year-old could be on his radar…

The latest: Spurs ‘interested’ in Disasi

As per Marca, translated by Sport Witness, Tottenham are ‘interested’ in signing Disasi this summer.

It is claimed that Spurs have ‘been after’ the former France under-20 starlet for a prolonged period and could hold an advantage over fellow suitors Atletico Madrid in their pursuit.

The Lilywhites can muster an ‘important financial effort’ to sign the man praised for his by journalist Eduardo Hagn ‘insane strength and power’, due to Arletico needing to sell numerous players this summer.

The verdict: Smart signing

Seemingly a player reaching his peak, snapping up Disasi would be a brilliant piece of business from Fabio Paratici, particularly with Conte craving improvements in the defence having conceded 40 goals in the Premier League last term, the most of the top-four finishers.

During 2021/22, the Frenchman – who can also play at full-back and has operated as a makeshift centre-forward previously – earned a 6.90 Sofascore rating, with 1.3 tackles and 2.3 clearances made per Ligue 1 outing and a 93% passing accuracy in his own half of the pitch.

Spurs fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the season against Man City?

Bearing a close stylistic likeness to Barcelona’s Ronald Araujo, Manchester United captain Harry Maguire and heavily-linked Villarreal defender Pau Torres (FBRef), Disasi would appear to be the ideal candidate for Conte in the grander scheme of things in terms of budget as the Italian looks to strengthen the entire Tottenham squad.
