A fresh report in the last 48 hours has now hinted Juventus legend Leonardo Bonucci could join Tottenham Hotspur.
The Lowdown: Paratici keeping busy…
Sporting director Fabio Paratici oversaw one of the busier summers at Spurs in recent memory with the Italian completing a plethora of serious moves.
The Lilywhites completed agreements for Ivan Perisic, Fraser Forster, Yves Bissouma, Richarlison, Clement Lenglet, Djed Spence, Destiny Udogie and a permanent deal for Cristian Romero – yet they could add even more to their ranks.
The Latest: Bonucci could join Spurs…
A report from Italy has hinted that Bonucci to Spurs is a possibility given his connections to manager Antonio Conte.
SportMediaSet claim both the 53-year-old and his former centre-back ‘could find themselves under the same colours’ – whether that be at Juve or Tottenham.
This comes as Spurs allegedly hold an interest in Bonucci, as ‘rumours’ from England find their way across the continent.
The Verdict: Make the move?
Given Spurs’ links to a star centre-half, it’s hardly surprising a link to Bonucci has now surfaced, taking into account the Conte factor.
Bonucci’s deal at Juve expires in 2024, potentially motivating Juve to consider a sale either in January or next summer to command a reasonable price tag.
The £198,000-per-week colossus played a starring role in Italy’s Euro 2020 win, being called a ‘monster’ by members of the press, and it is clear he could add a level of experience and assurance to Tottenham’s back three.
One question remains – will Conte be at the Spurs helm when the time comes for them to make a move?
