Tottenham Hotspur are keen on signing the Crystal Palace defender Marc Guehi.
The 23-year-old has been outstanding for Crystal Palace and his performances have attracted the attention of Tottenham and Manchester United.
A report from Football Insider claims that Tottenham have now registered their interest in the player and they have been in touch with Crystal Palace regarding a potential move. The 23-year-old central defender is reported valued at £60 million and it remains to be seen whether Tottenham can secure his signature.
Manchester United are willing to offer around £45 million for the central defender. The former Chelsea player has been linked with a move away from Selhurst Park for a while now.
Guehi will probably want to play for a bigger club in the near future and the opportunity to join Tottenham or Manchester United could be an exciting option for him.
Spurs need more quality and depth in their central defensive unit and the 23-year-old could prove to be an exceptional acquisition in the long run. Although the £60 million asking price seems quite steep, he is well-settled in the Premier League and he could make an immediate impact.
In addition to that, he is only 23 and will improve further with coaching experience. The 23-year-old central defender certainly has the potential to justify the outlay in the long run.
If Tottenham can bring in another quality defender in the coming weeks, they could sort out their defensive unit for the foreseeable future.
