“Being discussed internally” – Spurs want 23-year-old to partner Micky van de Ven, “player keen on PL move”

By Mehdi Gokal -

Tottenham Hotspur, under the leadership of Ange Postecoglou, is actively preparing for the upcoming 2023/2024 campaign and has made significant signings to address key issues within the squad.

The club’s transfer activities demonstrate a focus on strengthening various positions in the team.

The signing of James Maddison has added a top-class attacking midfielder to the squad, an area that was arguably lacking since Christian Eriksen’s departure.

The signing of Guglielmo Vicario has replaced Hugo Lloris in goal, who had started to become a liability.

Wolfsburg’s Micky van de Ven has joined as a highly rated Dutch center-back, while Manor Solomon’s signing has added threat and depth from the wings.

They have also signed a couple of highly-rated youngsters, Argentine centre-forward Alejo Veliz and centre-back Ashley Phillips from Blackburn.

Further reinforcements in the defense seem to be a priority for Tottenham. The club is linked with potential signings like Edmond Tapsoba, Clement Lenglet, and now Torino’s Perr Schuurs.

According to The Times, Tottenham are “planning to bring” in the 23-year-old. He is reportedly valued at £28 million by Torino.

His impressive impact since joining the Italian club last summer has drawn attention, and Tottenham’s intention to strengthen the defense is evident.

Spurs have signed Wolfsburg defender Micky van de Ven and Blackburn defender Ashley Phillips this week but Ange Postecoglou has made it very clear recently that the club plans to further bolster the defense.

Ange Postecoglou’s emphasis on reinforcing the defense was reiterated before the pre-season game against Barcelona on Monday.

He highlighted the potential for one more center-back signing after Micky van de Ven’s arrival. He said as reported by Fabrizio Romano:

“We’ve to see what happens with outgoings.”

“But, the potential is there to bring in one more centre back after van de Ven.”

The defensive overhaul is essential for Tottenham, as they aim to improve their record from last season when they conceded 63 goals, the worst in the top half of the table.
