Tottenham Hotspur: Source makes exciting Mattias Svanberg claim -Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

Speaking to inews, a Tottenham Hotspur source has broken some transfer news involving Bologna star Mattias Svanberg as Fabio Paratici enters pole position.

The Lowdown: Spurs eyeing Serie A raids…

Since new manager Antonio Conte’s arrival at N17, Spurs and managing director Fabio Paratici have been linked with a host of names from the Italian top flight.

Indeed, the likes of Dusan Vlahovic, Stefan de Vrij, Franck Kessie and Lorenzo Insigne are just some of the star Serie A names tipped with a possible move to N17.

Even expensive stars like Matthijs de Ligt have got a mention through the media with Paratici and Conte’s pull showing no sign of ending as a source shares news on yet another target from that division.

The Latest: Source makes exciting claim…

As per inews, Spurs are favourites to sign Bologna ace Svanberg with the club even ready to make him Conte’s first signing of the new era.

The 6 foot 1 powerhouse, tipped to be a player Conte would especially like, has also been called ‘very talented’ by the outlet’s source with knowledge of the situation – who also says Spurs may see some ‘big’ changes next month.

“He’s probably one of the top four or five No 8’s in Europe – that’s how good he is,” the source explained.

“Spurs already know him very, very well because of the Italians involved in the club now. And it looks as though there could be some fairly big changes at the club in January.

“Anyone who has seen him play for Bologna will tell you that he’s the sort of player that Conte would enjoy working with.”

The Lowdown: Priority for Spurs?

The 22-year-old’s impressive form for Bologna earned him a call up to Sweden’s Euro 2020 squad and this could be an indication of his sky high potential.

In terms of creativity and what the midfielder could bring to Spurs, Svanberg’s fairly consistent average of 1.3 key passes per 90 in the final third this season highlights his consistent threat at a young age (WhoScored).

Only Lucas Moura and Son Heung-min have managed a higher number by comparison with the international ace also racking up three goals and two assists so far in Serie A.

Given he allegedly turned down a contract offer recently, Bologna could also be forced to sell for a cut price fee as his current deal slowly winds down.

However, given the lack of cover up front for Harry Kane and their potential need for another centre-half, Svanberg’s capture perhaps shouldn’t quite take centre stage – though he would be an astute purchase.
