Tottenham showing ‘strong interest’ in 22-year-old Man City-owned ace

By Saikat -

Tottenham are keen on the Manchester City defender Yan Couto.

The 22-year-old was on loan at Spanish club Girona last season and he had an impressive campaign with them. The defender produced 10 assists in all competitions and a report from Fichajes claims that Tottenham have shown ‘strong interest’ in the player this summer.

The defender is reportedly valued at €25 million, and it will be interesting to see if Tottenham come forward with an offer to sign in. They could certainly use more depth in the right-back department. Emerson Royal has been linked to the move away from the club, and he will need to be replaced this summer. Couto would be the ideal replacement for his compatriot.

He is unlikely to get regular game time at Manchester City and if Tottenham can provide him with the right assurances, he is likely to be attracted to join the London club.

Tottenham will be hoping to push for trophies and Champions League qualification next season and they need better players are their disposal.

Couto could prove to be a quality acquisition. Apart from his defensive skills, he could add a new dimension to their attack going forward. The 22-year-old Brazilian is only going to improve with coaching and experience, and he could develop into a key player for the club.

If Spurs can sign him for a reasonable price this summer, the deal could look like a master stroke in the long-term. Aston Villa are keen on signing the defender as well and it remains to be seen where he ends up.
