Italian press claiming one Spurs target might keep Antonio Conte waiting until after the World Cup

By Eddie Razo -

Tottenham Hotspur is close to a loan deal that would see them Clément Lenglet. However, one name linked to the north London club is Bayer Leverkusen center-back Piero Hincapié. Following his first season with the German club, the Ecuador international has other teams noticing him.

One of them is Spurs, but despite recent reports suggesting that the 20-year-old is atop manager Antonio Conte’s wish list, he’s not closer to Tottenham, according to reports in Italy. 

Calciomercato‘s Daniele Longo reports that Hincapié isn’t close to signing with the Premier League side; furthermore, Serie A clubs AC Milan, AS Roma, and Napoli. Nonetheless, it seems that Bayer Leverkusen wants to sell the defender after the World Cup later this year. 

This past season, Hincapié appeared in 33 fixtures for the Bundesliga club, scoring two goals and recording one assist. Furthermore, the defender is under contract until 2026. 

Regarding an actual price, it seems as though Bayer Leverkusen is banking on Hincapié having a solid World Cup for Ecuador later this year to boost his value and create a larger market, allowing them to secure a significant fee.

Stevie Burgers to Ajax for 26 million.. Thank goodness for that..
I know some fans wanted to keep the guy, but his numbers were shocking.. Around about 1 goal and 1 assist every 20 games is no way near good enough for our league.
Now to shift the extremely gifted but lazy Ndombelly. A near impossible task.. He would have to take a huge pay cut because no club will give him 200k a week now.. After watching him for years I feel he has no real love or passion for the game. So I fear he’s all about the money.. In which case we might have our very own Ozil stinking out our reserves on huge wages for the remaining years left on his contract.. Embarrassing for the club, and especially the man himself.
