Tottenham Hotspur have made an approach for Cagliari midfielder Natihan Nandez, as per transfer guru Fabrizio Romano on Twitter.
The Lowdown: Spurs look to strengthen as 2021/22 gets underway
Looking to build a Spurs side capable of challenging on European and domestic fronts in 2021/22, Nuno Espirito Santo will no doubt consult all avenues in order to increase competition and depth within his squad.
Recruiting intelligently ahead of the transfer window closure in two weeks time, the Portuguese coach has made three additions so far in the form of Bryan Gil, Pierluigi Gollini and Cristian Romero [Transfermarkt].
Now, the North London outfit look set to make progress in another pursuit following recent developments.
Would Nandez be a good signing for THFC?
The Latest: Tottenham make Nandez approach as Romano reveals all
Nandez is on a formalised ‘list‘ of potential targets for the Lilywhites, however no official bid has come to fruition as of yet.
Spurs will decide soon on whether to sign the 25-year-old or not, with a fee of around €25-30 million rumoured to be enough to secure his services.
The Verdict: Nandez would be an exciting signing for Tottenham Hotspur
Needing to fill the void left by the departed Erik Lamela in midfield, we feel Nandez would be an astute addition who would excite the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and perhaps take a similar cult hero status to the departed winger.
Performing admirably in the 2020/21 campaign, he registered five goal contributions in 34 appearances for his current employers; two goals and three assists [Transfermarkt].
His feistiness in the heart of midfield is always on show, racking up 16 yellow cards in his last 63 Serie A starts, and while he is a more defensive minded player and not a like-for-like swap with Lamela, he could bring that extra bit of bite to the side.
Furthermore, his ability to control the flow of the game in the middle of the park stood out last term, claiming five man of the match awards [WhoScored].
Once labelled as a ‘great player’ by his agent Pablo Bentacur, Spurs should look to firm up their interest with an official offer for his signature [Football Fancast].
