Tottenham have the best defense in the Premier League under the management of Mauricio Pochettino and the Argentine boss is perhaps looking to further tighten things up by signing a defensive midfielder.
Last season, Eric Dier was Spurs’ main holding midfield star and he was brilliant. This season, the England international has mainly played in the central defense.
Last summer’s signing Victor Wanyama has been influential in the DM role. Therefore, it is surprising that the former Southampton manager wants another play breaker.
According to reports in Italy (TMW), Tottenham representatives were present in Italy to monitor the performance of French international and Inter Milan star Kondogbia against Sampdoria. The 24-year-old star played 45 minutes as the Nerazzurri lost the game 2-1.
Before completing his big money move to the Serie A side, Geoffrey was fantastic for Monaco. However, he has just been a bench warmer with Inter Milan.
In the current campaign, he was not even included in the squad for the Europa League and has only started 15 league games so far.
As per CIES Football Observatory, Kondogbia’s contract with Inter will expire in 2020 and he is rated around 21.9million euros $23million).
In your opinion, do Spurs really need another defensive midfielder? Should Pochettino sign Kondogbia?
