Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly now eyeing up a potential summer move for Jordan Veretout.
The Lowdown: January transfer failure
Spurs were strongly linked with a deal for the 28-year-old in the January transfer window, but ultimately a move never came to fruition, so he has stayed put at AS Roma.
Under former Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho, who dubbed him a ‘quality‘ player last month, he has four goals and nine assists in 33 games across all competitions so far this season (Transfermarkt) – handy numbers indeed for a central midfielder.
Should Tottenham sign Veretout?
No Lilywhites midfielder has more than three goals or assists combined in the Premier League this season, so it is an area where they could certainly improve.
The Latest: Spurs eye summer move for Veretout
As per Roma Today, Tottenham are now eyeing a move in the summer for Veretout, as are Newcastle United
Antonio Conte is an admirer of the Frenchman, but it would cost Spurs no less than €25m (£20.9m) to land his signature.
The Verdict: Bargain
Given that his market value is currently rated at £27m by Transfermarkt, signing Veretout for less than that figure would be a bargain for Spurs.
Also, Conte will know him well from his time in the Serie A, so the Italian should be able to get the most out of the player should he make the switch to north London.
