Tottenham Hotspur: Antonio Conte eyeing new target in Mario Hermoso -Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

As per The Daily Mail, Tottenham Hotspur. and by extension their manager Antonio Conte, are eyeing a brand new centre-back target in Atletico Madrid defender Mario Hermoso.

The Lowdown: Spurs plan ‘top summer priority’…

The Lilywhites have a left-footed central defender firmly in their sights this summer, according to reports, as Conte seeks to strengthen his option ahead of his first full season in charge.

Fabio Paratici is tasked with taking to the summer market and successfully negotiating these names with a transfer target list apparently drawn up already.

The Athletic claim that four major names have been shortlisted for Spurs ‘top summer priority’, which includes Joško Gvardiol, Alessandro Bastoni, Sven Botman and Nico Schlotterbeck.

The Latest: Mail make Hermoso claim…

Now, as per The Mail, a brand new target has been identified by the club and Conte in Atletico defender Hermoso – who emerges as a cheaper option to the likes of Gvardiol and Bastoni.

While the Spaniard hasn’t been a regular recently, he was in fine form beforehand according to the report, a factor which won’t deter Spurs given the impact of Rodrigo Bentancur and Dejan Kulusevski in north London.

The Verdict: Good candidate?

The 26-year-old, valued at around £22.5 million by Transfermarkt, could move on this summer with Atletico thought to be open to selling.

Bearing this in mind, taking into account his age and experience as a title-winner, he could come as a shrewd option for Tottenham’s left-sided central defensive role next season, potentially saving funds for bigger signings in other areas of the squad.
