According to a report by The Daily Mail, Tottenham Hotspur managing director Fabio Paratici is quite an admirer of Sassuolo defender Mert Muldur, with the Italian hatching a summer transfer plan.
The Lowdown: Paratici job…
The 48-year-old has garnered a reputation for facilitating eye-grabbing transfer deals, which includes signing Cristiano Ronaldo for former club Juventus (The Daily Mail).
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy hailed Paratici as a ‘tough negotiator‘ upon his official appointment by the club and it’s safe to say that his arrival has prompted many links to Serie A players.
The Latest: Paratici ready to pursue Muldur
As per The Daily Mail, Paratici is now personally ‘ready to pursue’ Turkey international Muldur. It is claimed that the Spurs chief is an admirer of the 22-year-old as he attracts interest from numerous Premier League clubs.
Indeed, Tottenham are among the clubs ‘plotting a move’ for the right-back alongside London rivals West Ham United.
Spurs have been linked with signing a new full-back, with Serge Aurier seeming likely to leave this summer.
The Verdict: Good move?
A relatively unknown quantity, Muldur got his chance on the big stage for Turkey at Euro 2020, where he managed two appearances under national team manager Şenol Güneş.
At club level, he started 18 Serie A games for Sassuolo last season whilst making the joint-third most tackles per match out of the entire squad (WhoScored).
A fee around this valuation could be fruitful, but if Sassuolo play hardball, we believe Paratici certainly shouldn’t waste time and must instead move on to targets.
