There have been rumors that Tottenham Hotspur is interested in signing Sevilla defender Loic Bade.
The 23-year-old French defender is reportedly being watched by the North London team, according to reports in recent days. El Mira says Tottenham is now the “great favourite” to sign him this month.
The London club is reportedly “actively bidding” to sign the player, who will probably cost €35 million, according to the report. Sevilla could profit handsomely from the player, who they signed for €12 million.
Bade could end up being a great addition for Tottenham, who need defensive reinforcements.
He has proven himself in La Liga, and the Premier League will find him to be more than capable. The player would be taking an exciting professional step forward if he moved to England, where he would have to prove himself.
Eric Dier, a defender for Tottenham, is anticipated to depart the team this month, so they will need to find suitable replacements. The Frenchman, who is 23 years old, would be an excellent substitute. Furthermore, players with injury issues include Micky Van de Ven and Cristian Romero.
Tottenham undoubtedly possesses the financial resources to cover the rumored €35 million asking price. If the player can quickly adjust to the Premier League and reach his full potential, the move might end up looking like a huge deal.
Radu Dragusin, a Romanian defender, is reportedly being considered by the North London team as well.
‘Final stages’ – Fabrizio Romano provides update on Tottenham’s Dragusin negotiations
According to Fabrizio Romano, Radu Dragusin is currently the subject of closing talks between Tottenham Hotspur and Genoa. The North London team anticipates closing the deal soon.
Much of the media’s focus has switched from the Spurs’ pursuit of Dragusin to their approach to Timo Werner over the last few days.
The North London club and RB Leipzig have apparently come to a complete agreement for the transfer of the German international on an initial loan with a buyout option worth between £13 million and £17.2 million, based on reports over the past 24 hours (David Ornstein).
To complete the Dragusin deal, Spurs
Romano has since revealed on social media that the Dragusin deal is also moving forward, citing “positive contacts” between Tottenham and Genoa during the weekend.
According to the journalist, the Lilywhites have only made verbal proposals up to this point, but they plan to submit an official offer this week and hope to complete the signing.
Tottenham may decide to spend comparatively more on a player near the end of the transfer window if they are successful in acquiring Werner and Dragusin for comparatively small transfer fees.
Spurs might be able to offer Gallagher between £40 and £50 million, but it’s unclear if Chelsea would accept such a bid and if the midfield player would be amenable to making the move.
