Tottenham will be in the market for a new defender when the transfer window reopens and they know exactly what they want.
One of their top priorities last summer was signing a new centre back. They brought in Joe Rodon, but his signing was because they couldn’t get their priority target.
The Lilywhites will now try to sign a better defender when the transfer window reopens and Football Insider says they want a pacy centre-back.
The report says that the Lilywhites have set their sights on signing a new centre-back that is quick, commanding and can slot straight into their defence for the next campaign.
Spurs made a great start to this campaign and they continue to do well in attack.
The partnership of Harry Kane and Son Heung-min has been helping them flourish as a team, but they don’t enjoy anything similar at the back.
This is one reason why they have had a poor season and they will look to correct that when the transfer window reopens.
A new commanding defender could give them assurance at the back and help their attacking players flourish under a boss next season.
