According to a report by Centotrentuno (via Sport Witness), Cagliari midfielder Nahitan Nandez is now ‘at the top of [Fabio] Paratici’s wishlist’ and it is believed the player is now open to joining Tottenham Hotspur.
The Lowdown: Spurs in Nandez chase…
There have been no shortage of claims over the past week linking Tottenham with a swoop for the Uruguay international.
Meanwhile, Calciomercato state that Paratici has even made an offer to sign him on loan with an obligation to buy – an operation totalling around €30 million (£25.5m).
Now, another claim from Italy has emerged with Paratici now seemingly pinpointing Nandez as a priority target.
The Latest: Nandez ‘top of Paratici’s wish list’…
As per Centorentuno (via Sport Witness), the Italian transfer chief has placed Nandez at the top of his wishlist this summer and a Tottenham bid could come soon.
Spurs are apparently very keen on signing the 25-year-old this summer and ‘confirmations from London are constant’ over the player.
It is said that the Lilywhites are ‘attracted by the versatility and characteristics’ of Nandez that ‘perfectly match the style of the team’.
In another enticing claim, Centorentuno believe that the midfield ace ‘would like’ Spurs as a viable destination and wouldn’t say no to a move.
The Verdict: Get it done…
This report claims Spurs could seal a move to sign Nandez for just a paid loan of €10 million (£8.5m) with a future fee of €15-20 million (£12.7m-£17m) – arguably pocket change for a player who has been called ‘powerful’ and a ‘machine’ by Serie A critics (Conor Clancy to This is Futbol).
At just 25, Nandez also holds the potential for plenty of sell-on value in years to come.
