Tottenham Hotspur are allegedly working on their fourth signing of the summer after Yves Bissouma as news emerges on Middlesbrough defender Djed Spence.
The Lowdown: Conte keeps pushing…
Indeed, he joins the likes of Ivan Perisic and Fraser Foster who both joined the north London club on free transfers prior to the Mali international’s arrival.
The Latest: Spence ‘deal’ currently ‘in the works’…
As per their information, a ‘deal’ to sign Spence from Middlesbrough is currently ‘in the works’ as Spurs eye their potential fourth agreement of this transfer window.
How far they are down the line in terms of concluding a move isn’t explained, but is believed that they are attempting to sign the Championship starlet behind the scenes.
The Verdict: Make the move…
Homegrown and seriously impressing on loan at Nottingham Forest during their promotion push last season, we believe that Spence would come as a very astute signing for Spurs.
Who should Conte sign next for Tottenham?
Tottenham’s need to balance their homegrown quota has been well-documented, and the 21-year-old’s arrival would go some way to helping in that regard.
Finishing last season as one of Steve Cooper’s standout performers at the City Ground, posting the squad’s sixth-highest WhoScored rating, Spence has also been called the ‘perfect player for Conte’ by journalists such as talkSPORT’s Alex Crook, so there are numerous reasons to be cheerful if the youngster is wearing a Tottenham shirt on the opening day of the new season.
