Tottenham Hotspur have scouted Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Max Kilman, according to reliable journalist Ben Jacobs.
The Lowdown: Kilman’s season
With his performances in a Wolves shirt so good he was hailed as ‘ridiculous’ by The Athletic’s Tim Spiers, the Premier League newcomer has now aroused transfer interest after a successful start to life in the English top-flight.
The Latest: Jacobs’ claim
Jacobs has shared the latest transfer news involving the 25-year-old, linking him with a shock move to Hotspur Way.
This follows reported interest from January, when 90min reported that Spurs had made contact with Wolves over a potential move.
The Verdict: Great signing
The Wanderers man enjoyed a successful season in the Premier League last season, for which he averaged an impressive 7.03 match rating (via SofaScore).
Taking up responsibility in Bruno Lage’s back-line, the defender averaged 3.5 clearances, 1.7 tackles, 1.5 interceptions and 0.7 blocks per game throughout the campaign (via WhoScored), demonstrating his well-made adjustment to 11-a-side football.
The 6 foot 4 centre-back could be a fantastic long-term addition to Antonio Conte’s squad, given his ability to learn quickly, and if Fabio Paratici did decide to act on his scouts’ reports, this could be a great signing for Tottenham.
