The Lowdown: Spurs keeping busy?
Spurs have already made seven major signings this summer, not including the deal to make Cristian Romero’s stay officially permanent, with Ivan Perisic, Fraser Forster, Yves Bissouma, Richarlison, Clement Lenglet, Djed Spence and Destiny Udogie putting pen to paper.
Who should Spurs sign in last minute deal?
It appears sporting director Fabio Paratici may not be finished as Kallas shares an update on their pursuit of the latter man.
The Latest: Kallas shares Carrasco update…
Indeed, the reporter explains that Spurs still have a late chance of signing Carrasco.
He spoke live on Sky Sports News (via Football Daily):
“Yannick Carrasco could be going to Tottenham, several reports saying that Atletico are still afraid that they will lose Carrasco in this last final 48 hours.
“He has a 60 million euro clause, but it’s still very uncertain, so he could be going to the Premier League.”
The Verdict: Make a move…
The Belgium international would be a stellar capture for Conte in this last stretch of the window.
The versatile 28-year-old also made more key passes and completed a higher rate of take-ons per 90 than any of his teammates over 2021/2022.
One might even make the case that a release clause of €60 million (£51m) for such a player in his prime could be considered very reasonable.
