Tottenham Hotspur and transfer chief Fabio Paratici by extension are eyeing a late move for exciting young Manchester City forward Adedire Mebude.
The Lowdown: Spurs keeping busy…
Despite having already completed eight major signings in total, including a deal to make Cristian Romero’s move permanent, Spurs are reportedly keeping busy in this transfer market.
Alongside the Argentine, Ivan Perisic, Fraser Forster, Yves Bissouma, Richarlison, Clement Lenglet, Djed Spence and Destiny Udogie have all put to pen paper on moves to the Premier League club.
As well as these senior additions for manager Antonio Conte, sporting director Paratici has also been planning ahead for the future with key additions at youth level, most recently completing a £2m deal for promising striker Will Lankshear.
The Latest: Lilywhites eye Mebude move…
According to reliable reporter Fabrizio Romano, it appears that the north Londoners want to poach top Manchester City starlet Mebude.
He explained that the 18-year-old winger is ‘attracting interest from Tottenham’ and abroad, with the English champions eager to fend off their interest.
Romano stated: “Man City talented winger Adedire Mebude is attracting interest from Tottenham and Club Brugge. City want to keep him but decision will be made soon.”
The Verdict: Get it done…
The Scotland under-19 international is already turning plenty of heads, and we believe that Spurs should definitely attempt to steal City’s gem.
Mebude enjoyed an absolutely stellar Under-18 Premier League campaign in 2021/22 and stood out as a real star player for the Sky Blues’ youngsters.
The teenage talent netted 11 goals and provided a head-turning 18 assists in that division alone, leading to Mebude’s promotion to City’s Elite Development Squad.
He has already made a fine start to life at that level, with EDS head coach Brian Barry-Murphy calling him a ‘very exciting‘ player to watch.
