Tottenham Hotspur: Fabio Paratici makes bid to sign Dodo

Tottenham Hotspur: Fabio Paratici makes bid to sign Dodo -Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

According to journalist Ekrem Konur, Tottenham Hotspur, and by extension managing director Fabio Paratici, have lodged an offer to sign Shakhtar Donetsk defender Dodo – and they have already received a reply.

The Lowdown: Spurs in right-back market?

Amid the exit links surrounding Serge Aurier and even Matt Doherty, Tottenham have been touted to add a new right-back to Nuno Espirito Santo’s ranks before the transfer window closes on August 31.

The likes of Zeki Celik, Max Aarons and Tariq Lamptey have all been linked with Spurs this summer, while Bologna defender Takehiro Tomiyasu can also operate in that position.

Konur has now brought news of a Paratici offer for yet another Spurs right-back target.

The Latest: Spurs submit Dodo offer…

As per the Turkish reporter on social media, Spurs have now made a €20m (£17m) offer to Shakhtar for their defensive ace, with the Ukrainian club swiftly replying.

It is explained by the journalist that Tottenham’s bid has been rejected as Shakhtar rate him at around €40m (£34m).

Along with Spurs, Bayern Munich lodged a bid of their own amounting to roughly €25m (£21.2m), with that offer also being rejected outright.

The Verdict: Move on…

Given that Spurs are also eyeing moves for Pau Torres and Lautaro Martinez (The Times), we advise Paratici to move on from this chase if £34m is indeed the price for Dodo.

Stepping up talks for Tomiyasu to play as a right-back is arguably far more fruitful, considering that he would cost around half of that amount, according to Sky Sports.

Tottenham certainly cannot afford to splash such a huge amount on that position if they wish to add a potent attacker like Martinez or Dusan Vlahovic.
