Tottenham manager Antonio Conte is now personally weighing up a move for Blackburn star Ben Brereton Diaz as an update emerges on Spurs’ hunt for a new striker.
The Lowdown: Spurs keep moving…
After completing a deal to sign midfielder Yves Bissouma from fellow Premier League club Brighton, the Lilywhites are not stopping there, as it is reliably believed that they are aiming to upgrade their striker options among other key positions.
The likes of Richarlison and Gabriel Jesus have been repeatedly linked with a move to north London as transfer chief Fabio Paratici earmarks numerous targets to potentially support/rotate with superstar Harry Kane.
As per Claret & Hugh, there has now been an update on their mission to sign a new forward, and it involves Ewood Park hotshot Brereton Diaz.
The Latest: Conte personally ‘considering’ Brereton Diaz ‘swoop’…
As per their information, Tottenham head coach Conte is now personally ‘considering a swoop’ for the Championship sensation, who bagged 22 goals in the league alone last season.
North London officials have repeatedly been sent to run the rule over the Chile international as Paratici dispatches his staff on scouting missions.
Claret & Hugh added that Spurs’ interest in Brereton Diaz is ‘very real’.
The Verdict: Good option?
It is isn’t unreasonable to believe that he could cut it in the English top flight as Tottenham weigh up the shrewdest options to gift Conte more strength in the forward areas.
Blackburn allegedly value Brereton Diaz at around £20m, and taking into account the player’s age coupled with other factors, it’s a price which could be worth paying.
Who should Conte sign next for Tottenham?
Indeed, this could be an interesting development to keep an eye upon throughout the summer.
