Tottenham: Spurs join the race for Ivan Fresneda

Tottenham: Spurs join the race for Ivan Fresneda -Premier League News

Tottenham Hotspur have now joined the race to sign Real Valladolid right-back Ivan Fresneda, according to a new report.

The Lowdown: Conte eyeing right-wing back

It is no secret that Antonio Conte wants to bolster the right-wing back area during the January transfer window, with Emerson Royal now available to leave the club, according to transfer insider Dean Jones.

The likes of Pedro Porro and Denzel Dumfries have been linked with a move this window, with the former said to desire the move, according to Fabrizio Romano, while football.london detail that strengthening the position is a priority this month.

The Latest: Fresneda considered

According to a report from 90min, Tottenham have watched Fresneda play, and are considering making an approach, however there is a lot of competition for his signature.

It is claimed that Newcastle United have held talks over a potential deal, while Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United are also listed as potential suitors, so Spurs may have to hijack the move if they set their sights on the 18-year-old.

The Verdict: Get it done?

There is high praise indeed for the youngster from football scout Jacek Kulig, who labelled him as being ‘superb’ following a performance against Real Madrid, while he also claimed that he is ‘one of the most talented teenage right-backs in Europe’.

Given that the defender has only just broke into the Valladolid first team, he may be available for a cheaper price than the £40m that has been touted for Porro, and he has already displayed his remarkable defensive capabilities during his short stint in the team.

How much did Spurs pay to sign future legend and fan favourite David Ginola?

Over the past year, the starlet has averaged a remarkable 3.71 tackles per 90, in the 99th percentile, while he has also weighed in with 1.61 interceptions per 90 in the same timeframe, both figures far higher than what has been offered up by Emerson Royal, highlighting that Fresneda could make an immediate improvement to the team, rather than only being a long-term prospect.
