Tottenham Hotspur ‘insider’ John Wenham, who regularly breaks news about the club on his Lilywhites Rose social media channels, has made a promising transfer claim involving right wing-back target Djed Spence.
The Lowdown: Spence targeted…
After transfer chief Fabio Paratici failed to seal a deal for the Championship starlet in January, with multiple late bids lodged to no avail, it is reliably believed that Spurs will be back in the mix.
They apparently view the Middlesbrough defender, who is currently excelling on loan at Nottingham Forest, as a ‘top target’, with the Spurs insider now sharing what he has heard.
The Latest: Spence ‘99% going to happen’…
According to Wenham, who was speaking to Football Insider, a deal for Spence is ‘99% going to happen’.
He added that the mooted £10m fee for his services is a ‘no-brainer’, describing it as ‘great’ news for Spurs that they’re moving to try and seal a move early.
Wenham stated: “I think Spence is 99% going to happen. That’s what I am hearing and the fee is actually really reasonable as well.
“It’s around £10million. That’s a no-brainer, thank you very much. He’s the one a lot of clubs have been linked with.
“So it sounds like we are getting a really good deal and getting it done early which is great to see.”
The Verdict: Get it done…
Described as a player who ‘massively fits the bill for Conte’, we believe that Spence’s numbers over 2021/22 certainly back this theory.
An attack-minded wing-back, the 21-year-old has averaged Forest’s third-highest amount of successful take-ons per 90 whilst also delivering the joint-second most crosses from out wide – all whilst becoming a mainstay under Steve Cooper with 40 Championship starts (WhoScored).
The English youngster’s prospective capture could also go some way to solving the Lilywhites’ current homegrown quota issue as they urgently need to balance the books, making this update a positive one indeed.
