The Lowdown: Paratici eyes Nandez summer swoop…
Over the summer window, Spurs were heavily linked with a move for the Uruguay international amid the unrest surrounding Tanguy Ndombele’s future.
Indeed, Sky Sports even revealed an approach was made by Fabio Paratici and co to sign the Serie A midfielder with Spurs particularly attracted by his versatility.
As well as sitting in front of the back four, Nandez can operate on the right flank in both a more advanced and defensive role.
Now, with January only three months away, it appears a major update has come from Italy.
The Latest: Spurs ‘ready to close’ Nandez deal…
This is despite interest from Italian powerhouses Napoli and Inter Milan, who Spurs could ‘mock’ in the process of bringing the 25-year-old to N17.
The Verdict: Get it done…
Lauded as an ‘unstoppable‘ player by Serie A pundit Mina Rzouki, Nandez would come as a brilliant signing for Spurs and one who could bolster Nuno Espirito Santo’s options in a number of key areas.
He also comes with some sell-on value going by his age, but as usual with Spurs, much may depend on Cagliari’s valuation.
Fabrizio Romano reported that the Serie A side value Nandez at around €25/30 million (£21.2m/£25.5m), and going by that sum, he could certainly be worth every penny.
