Tottenham Hotspur talks to sign a ‘star’ target for manager Antonio Conte have been confirmed by reliable journalist Fabrizio Romano.
The Lowdown: Spurs moving…
The Lilywhites are seriously moving in this summer transfer market and show no sign of slowing down as the club are reliably thought to be eyeing even more signings.
Conte, according to reports, is said to want a new wing-back, midfielder and forward ahead of his first full Premier League season in charge at Hotspur Way.
It appears Spurs, after their Champions League qualification and £150 million equity increase courtesy of ENIC, are seriously displaying their full ambitions to appease their head coach.
According to Romano, the north Londoners have also held talks over signing a ‘star’.
The Latest: Romano makes Spurs transfer claim…
The journalist, writing in a column for Caught Offside, has shared the latest transfer developments – making a claim involving Tottenham and Brentford playmaker Christian Eriksen.
He claims Spurs are one of four clubs, including Man United, Leicester and his current side, to hold ‘discussions’ with the Denmark international’s agent.
As Eriksen bides his time on where to go next, Romano says that all interested parties are still waiting for ‘feedback’ from the 30-year-old.
The Verdict: Nervous hours?
The former Spurs star would be a brilliant Bosman deal capture, especially considering he finished 2021/2022 as Brentford’s best-performer by average match rating and most effective final-third creator in terms of key passes per 90 (WhoScored).
Who should Spurs sign next for Conte?
A star centre-back
Called a ‘star‘ by BBC journalist Dan Roan, members of the press aren’t Eriksen’s only fans, with Man City superstar Kevin de Bruyne even calling him ‘very underrated’ at one point (via Hotspur Related).
Eriksen’s glowing endorsements and fantastic statistics over the most recent campaign point towards a very shrewd potential signing for Spurs.
