Backing news of Tottenham Hotspur’s interest in Cagliari star Nahitan Nandez, Sky Sports have now come out with their own update on the chase for the tenacious midfielder.
The Lowdown: Spurs now eyeing Nandez…
Tottenham have entered the chase to sign Nandez in recent days as numerous reports reveal managing director Fabio Paratici’s interest in bringing him to north London.
Indeed, reliable transfer journalist Fabrizio Romano has claimed that the 25-year-old is one of many midfield targets on the Italian chief’s list with ‘contacts started’ but no official bid yet.
Sky Sports, while not exactly sharing news on an official bid, back news of interest in Nandez as they share their own update.
The Latest: Sky Sports back news of Nandez interest
Nandez handed in a transfer request earlier this window following interest from Inter Milan and his versatility is highlighted as a real plus point.
The midfield maestro can play in the middle of the park, out wide and even as a right wing-back – potentially coming as a solution to the Spurs full-back issue as well as a target who can protect the back four.
The Verdict: Get it done Fabio…
At just 25, Nandez comes with a real potential for sell-on value in years to come if he keeps on performing at a high level.
Indeed, Nandez could well leave for slightly less than other Spurs midfield targets, like Sporting Lisbon’s Joao Palhinha for example (£34m), while solving more problems in Nuno Espirito Santo’s squad due to his versatility.
He has also attracted plenty of praise from the press, with ESPN and BT Sports football pundit Mina Rzouki branding him ‘so amazing’ and ‘underrated’ on Twitter.
If Tottenham manage to get him over the line, we believe he could be quite the shrewd purchase.
