Tottenham tipped to complete the signing of 23-year-old versatile defender

By Saikat -

Tottenham are expected to move for Feyenoord defensive sensation Lutsharel Geertruida.

Ange Postecoglou has already made it clear that Spurs will undergo major changes in the upcoming transfer window. They are expected to make quite a few signings in the summer and according to John Wenham, they could end up acquiring the services of Lutsharel Geertruida.

If everything goes according to plan, the North London club might end up signing him before the end of the season.

Wenham while speaking to Tottenham News said: “Gimenez was sat in an executive box, which I thought was particularly interesting,”

“It was also interesting that it was the players themselves posting the photos, rather than fans, and I wouldn’t be surprised if Spurs had both of these signings wrapped up before the season is over, which would be huge.

“Gimenez is an out-and-out striker who has put up really impressive numbers this year, while Geertruida is very versatile and can play several defensive positions.”

Geertruida was reportedly present in the stands of Tottenham Hotspur Stadium to watch the home team in action against rivals Arsenal in the North London derby. On the back of his visit, the owner of Spurs podcast Lilywhite Rose feels Postecoglou’s team could be close to completing the signing of the 23-year-old defensive star.

The Australian manager seeks more depth at the back and the Dutch international might be a perfect fit for his system. While he prefers playing out wide as a right-back, he can slot in as a centre-back and can even feature as a defensive midfielder when needed.

Geertruida’s versatility could be a huge boost for Tottenham and he is only 23 which means the Dutch defender will only get better with time. On the back of recent developments, Wenham believes it won’t be a surprise if Spurs manage to complete the signing of the Feyenoord defender before their final league game of the season.
