Tottenham’s brilliant work in the transfer market continues. Antonio Conte’s team aims to get at least six new players this summer.
Tottenham needs to strengthen both the quality and the depth of the squad so that new players coming on as replacements show a high impact immediately.
One of the problematic positions for Spurs is the defensive line. One primary option Alessandro Bastoni from Inter Milan he has made it clear that he intends to stay in Italy.
According to journalist Fabrizio Romano (via football.london), Spurs have had their eye on Mohamed Simakan for a very long time. The young Leipzig defender last season played 27 games in the Bundesliga and also appeared in the Europa League.
The versatility and age of the 20-year-old defender matches Antonio Conte’s requirements. The Italian is a coach who can unlock the potential of young players.
Characterizing Mohamed’s talent, the former Leipzig sporting director said:
“Mohamed Simakan is a robust, dynamic and versatile defender. He can play in central defence or at full-back. At 20, Mohamed is still young and capable of developing.”
According to CIES, the current market value of the 20-year-old player is up to 25.9 million pounds.
The potential of the player is incredible, he could be a worthy substitute for the main defenders now, and in the future to take their place on a full-time basis.
