Tottenham Hotspur have also held ‘negotiations’ to sign a ‘perfect player’ for manager Antonio Conte, according to Sky Sports reporter Lyall Thomas.
The Lowdown: Spurs busy…
The Lilywhites have certainly been one of the busier Premier League teams of this transfer window so far, having already confirmed both Ivan Perisic and Fraser Forster on Bosman deals.
They’re also rumoured to be closing in on a third as reports surround Brighton and Hove Albion star Yves Bissouma, perhaps setting up this summer window as Tottenham’s busiest and most exciting in years.
Sharing an update, Thomas of Sky now says there have been ‘negotiations’ to sign another player Conte.
The Latest: Thomas makes Spurs claim…
According to the journalist, the club and by extension sporting director Fabio Paratici, have held talks over signing Middlesbrough starlet Djed Spence.
However, Thomas also states that no deal has been agreed ‘yet’.
When asked for the latest update on Spence, he explained:
“There have been negotiations. Deal not agreed yet.”
The Verdict: Start moving…
Securing the 21-year-old would balance out Tottenham’s troubling homegrown quota issue and provide Conte with an exciting wing-back option.

Other (let us know in the comments!)
Described as the ‘perfect player for Conte‘ by talkSPORT reporter Alex Crook, other members of the media have said he ‘massively fits the bill’ for Spurs’ head coach after an ‘incredible’ season on loan at Nottingham Forest over 2021/2022 (Alan Hutton).
Spence’s mooted £20 million asking price could be a reasonable valuation given the amount of benefits he would provide Spurs and this is a move which should certainly be prioritised.
