According to reliable journalist Nizaar Kinsella of Goal, a very promising Tottenham Hotspur transfer update has come to light involving Championship starlet Djed Spence.
The Lowdown: Spurs make bid…
The 21-year-old was a major target for manager Antonio Conte in January as he sought the signing of a right-wing-back, as per reports at the time.
ESPN even lifted the lid on multiple deadline day Tottenham bids, but to no avail, with transfer chief Fabio Paratici now having to wait until summer amid growing competition.
Bayern Munich are now apparently involved in the race, but luckily for Spurs fans, it appears their side still hold all the cards.
The Latest: Spurs ‘favourites’…
According to Goal’s sources, despite the many clubs interested, Tottenham are ‘favourites’ to sign Spence as they enter pole position.
They add that Spurs and Paratici ‘continue to scout him closely’ and north London is the ‘most likely landing spot’ for the in-demand player.
The Verdict: Finalise the move…
Having drawn plenty of acclaim already, Spence comes as a transfer target who could pay dividends in future seasons, with former Spurs right-back Alan Hutton in no doubt he is what Conte needs.
Speaking to Football Insider, the former Scotland international says he is ‘incredible’ and ‘massively fits the bill for Conte’ and this praise certainly has plenty of evidence to support it, with Ian Wright noting how he dominated Arsenal in the FA Cup earlier this year.
Reports suggest Middlesbrough value the current Nottingham Forest loanee at around £15 million, an arguably afford price tag for Spurs to make a move.
It appears there are far more incentives than barriers to attempt his signing this summer.
