According to a report by Calciomercato, Tottenham Hotspur managing director Fabio Paratici has now made an offer to sign Cagliari star Nahitan Nandez.
The Lowdown: Spurs enter Nandez chase…
As backed by reliable journalist Fabrizio Romano, Tottenham have taken an interest in signing the Uruguay international – coming amid reports of unrest surrounding Tanguy Ndombele.
Daily Star reporter Paul Brown claimed last week that the Frenchman is now considering his options after being frozen out by Lilywhites boss Nuno Espirito Santo.
Spurs are also apparently targeting new midfielders as a result, with Joao Palhinha, Denis Zakaria and Corentin Tolisso among the names being considered (Daily Star).
Now, Calciomercato bring an update on yet another midfield target for Tottenham.
The Latest: Paratici makes Nandez offer…
As per the Italian news source, Spurs are now ‘trying’ to sign the 25-year-old and managing director Paratici has personally made Cagliari an offer.
Indeed, the Tottenham transfer chief, who is in charge of developing on-field sporting operations, has tabled an ‘onerous loan’ bid with an obligation to buy – with the ‘total operation’ amounting to €30 million (£25.5m).
This comes after Serie A giants Inter Milan abandoned their pursuit of the 41-cap dynamo as Paratici aims to take full advantage.
The Verdict: Get it done…
Out of all Spurs’ midfield targets, we believe Nandez has emerged as the biggest potential bargain of them all.
If Paratici can secure him by offering that loan with an obligation to buy deal, a total cost of around £25.5m looks like pocket change when taking into account his plaudits from the press.
He is just nine international caps short of half a century at just 25, telling you all you need to know about Nandez’ standout performances for both Uruguay and at club level.
Tottenham should certainly bring him in as midfield reinforcement and it will be interesting to see how this link develops before August 31.
