Tottenham Transfer News: According to reports, Tottenham are interested in acquiring PSG midfielder Idrissa Gueye in the summer transfer window to enhance their midfield options
Tottenham Transfer News: Spurs are reportedly interested in Idrissa Gueye, who has fallen out of favour with Mauricio Pochettino during his time at Paris Saint-Germain this season, according to the French publication Jeunes Footeux.
The midfielder’s contract with the French giants ends in 2023. It has prompted them to ponder his future ahead of the next transfer window.
Idrissa Gueye has built a reputation for himself in football by making a steady impact from midfield for all of the teams for which he has played. PSG was drawn to his high levels of performance. They paid Everton £28 million in the summer of 2019 to get him.
What’s the matter?
Since then, things have been beneficial. Gueye made an immediate impression in Paris. He blended in well with a star-studded group and developed into a valued member of the Parc des Princes team over time. This season, on the other hand, has not been kind to the midfielder. He has made just 18 appearances in Ligue 1.
He has one year remaining on his contract. PSG is allegedly open to receiving bids during the summer transfer window. If a €20 million bid for Gueye is received, the Parisians may agree to let him go. But finding a team willing to spend that much for a 32-year-old is tough.
PSG has already begun exploring potential replacements for the midfielder. They are vying with Bayern Munich for the signature of Corentin Tolliso. Although they are also considering other possibilities.
PSG is also interested in signing Chelsea’s Jorginho. It is believed that Tottenham would be interested in signing the Senegalese international in the summer. Therefore they are high-caliber players to take Gueye’s spot.
Tottenham is on the lookout for players to bolster their team in a variety of areas. Manager Antonio Conte is interested in bringing in several players to enhance various aspects of the squad as he seeks to construct a side capable of competing with Liverpool and Manchester City at the top of the Premier League.
Tottenham may let some of its key players depart the club in the summer to initiate a major revamp. The midfield is another area where new arrivals might be on the horizon.
This is considering the uncertainty surrounding Harry Winks’ long-term future and Oliver Skipp’s recent injury woes.
Will Tottenham make a bid for him?
Tottenham presently has Rodrigo Bentancur and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg as their first-choice midfielders. Harry Winks and Jeffrey Schlupp are serving as squad alternatives for the manager.
For additional stability and quality depth on the squad, Conte may attempt to bring in an experienced player from outside. As a result, Gueye is being evaluated for a summer move, with the expectation that the club will make an offer.
While it is unclear if Tottenham will be prepared to pay the €20 million asking price, it is expected that the north Londoners will negotiate the price.
