CBS journalist Ben Jacobs has shared a Tottenham Hotspur transfer update involving Villarreal defender Pervis Estupinan, with Spurs certainly not done after recent activity in the market.
The Lowdown: Spurs busy…
A trio of early confirmed deals for Ivan Perisic, Fraser Forster and Yves Bissouma have been followed by the north Londoners confirming a move for Everton star Richarlison and making headway for Barcelona defender Clement Lenglet.
Who do Spurs need to sign next for Conte?
Other (tell us in the comments!)
So far this summer, Spurs have displayed their full ambition for manager Antonio Conte as the Italian prepares for his first full Premier League season in charge of the club.
Reports have also suggested that Tottenham could yet strengthen further before 2022/23 commences, with reliable reporter Jacobs now sharing what he knows on sporting director Fabio Paratici’s plans.
The Latest: Jacobs makes Estupinan transfer claim…
Indeed, according to his information, there is ‘more to come’ from Tottenham.
Taking to Twitter, he explained that Spurs are also ‘advanced’ over a move for Villarreal wing-back Estupinan.
Reacting to Richarlison’s move to N17, Jacobs explained: “Good window so far for Spurs with Bissouma, Perisic and Forster also joining. Still more to come, especially a defender. Spurs considering Skriniar, Lenglet or Estupiñan with latter two a bit more advanced.”
The Verdict: Good news?
The Ecuador international could help to provide depth for Conte on the left flank, with it being reliably believed that the Tottenham manager ideally wants a new full-back on either side.
However, we’re under the impression that targets like Udinese left-back Destiny Udogie could be more suited to Spurs, especially since the Udinese man comes with a glowing reputation, while Estupinan’s performance figures for Villarreal (as per WhoScored) don’t exactly stand out.
