Report claims ‘there is interest’ from Tottenham in 26-year-old, star would cost €10-15m

By Saikat -

Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with the move for the Japanese defender Koki Machida.

A report from Voetbal Belgie claims that ‘there is interest’ from Tottenham in the player and he is likely to cost around €10-15 million.

Machida is a central defender who has done quite well since his move to Union SG and his performances have attracted the attention of the Premier League club.

It will be interesting to see if the North London club follow up on their interest with a concrete proposal to sign the player next month. It is no secret that they need to bring in quality defenders, especially after the injury blows to Cristian Romero and Micky van de Ven.

Machida could prove to be a quality option for Spurs and he will be available on a bargain. Tottenham certainly have the financial resources to pay €10-15 million for the defender.

A move to the Premier League will be an exciting step up in the defender’s career, and he will look to make his mark in English football if the transfer goes through.

Tottenham will be hoping to secure Champions League qualification this season and they will need to plug the gaps in their squad during the January window. Signing a central defender should be a top priority for them.

Meanwhile, Tottenham manager Ange Postecoglou did well to tap into the Asian market during his time at Celtic to improve his squad. He has extensive knowledge when it comes to Asian players and he could help bring out the best in Machida if he joins the club.
