Tottenham could outbid Euro giants in the race for 22-year-old Arsenal-linked star

By Saikat -

Tottenham are interested in signing Arsenal defensive target Riccardo Calafiori and they could outbid Juventus in the race to sign the Italian international.

Ange Postecoglou wants to further reinforce his squad ahead of next season. Despite having signed Micky van de Ven and Radu Dragusin in his first season in charge, the Australian manager still wants to add more depth to his defence.

According to a report from TuttoJuve, Tottenham could outbid Juventus and sign Riccardo Calafiori this summer amidst interest from Arsenal.

The 22-year-old has had a sensational season with Bologna and on the back of his performances, he has been a constant feature in Italy’s backline in the ongoing Euro 2024. Despite having three years left on his deal at the club, Calafiori is expected to be on the move this summer.

Arsenal are one of the clubs interested in him. The Gunners want to strengthen their backline. With Jakub Kiwior’s departure likely, they want to bring in a left-footed defender and the Italian centre-back could be an ideal fit.

Juventus are also keen on adding him to their squad. Calafiori wants to continue his development in Italy and he would like to reunite with his former manager Thiago Motta at the Turin-based club. While the Old Lady are counting on the player’s desire, Spurs could flex their financial strength to prise him away.

Van de Ven is the only left-sided centre-back in the North London club’s squad. While they do have enough quality at the back, they need another left-footed defender and Calafiori could be a great addition to Postecoglou’s team as he can feature as a full-back as well as in a central role. Their interest is quite concrete and it will be interesting to see if they can get the deal done.
