Tottenham Could Sign Powerful Star In £70m Deal After Opening Transfer Talks

By on July 31, 2018

The summer transfer window is in full swing and managers are working hard on their transfer targets so we’ll bring you all the latest gossip from around the globe. Today, Tottenham are linked with Geoffrey Kondogbia….

Tottenham have been told they will need to stump up £70m to land Geoffrey Kondogbia after opening talks with Valencia over a potential deal for the midfielder, according to the Mirror.

Mauricio Pochettino is keen to strengthen his squad as he looks to turn Tottenham in to genuine title contenders but he’s endured a difficult summer so far as Spurs are yet to make a single signing having been frustrated in their attempts to sign their top transfer targets.

A new central midfielder is seemingly on the agenda as Moussa Sissoko and Mousa Dembele are being linked with moves this summer but Pochettino has been forced to look at alternatives after failing to agree terms with Aston Villa over Jack Grealish.

It looks like Kondogbia has emerged as a target as reports in France via TeamTalk claim Tottenham have opened talks with Valencia over a deal to sign the French international.

Kondogbia came through the youth ranks at Lens and played for Sevilla, Monaco and Inter Milan during his career before joining Valencia on an initial loan deal last summer.

The 25-year-old impressed for Los Che last season and made his move permanent earlier in the summer but the powerful central midfielder could already be on the move again with a switch to north London in the pipeline.

TeamTalk says Tottenham could launch a formal bid for Kondogbia but the Mirror claims Valencia have made it clear they will only sell if Spurs meet the players £70m release clause.

However, it remains to be seen whether Spurs will be prepared to pay that kind of money as chairman Daniel Levy is a tough negotiator and will no doubt hope to drive Kondogbia’s price down.

We’ll have to wait and see how negotiations progress over the coming days but I think Kondogbia would be a solid addition for Tottenham if they could get a deal agreed as he’d provide stiff competition for the likes of Victor Wanyama and Eric Dier.

    Regardless as to who Spurs sign please don`t let Levy near the choosing of the type of player MP wants just let Levy sign the cheque , this guy only likes cheap below average players to sell on the following season mostly at a loss because they are usually not good enough , then another thought has just crossed my mind a real top player probably won`t sign for Spurs because the new football shirt is a fecking mess from the stomach down hate it they are a fecking site .

    @ Johnny That is exactly the type of player Pochecrappo likes too! Look at all of the decent players he has got rid and the crap he has kept! Michel Vorm is only at Championship level as is Harry Winks/Stinks. Alot of our best youth players have already moved on and others are looking to as Pochecrappo and our tight-fisted board yet again has not done what other clubs have paid what was required to get players in that really would make us a challenging club where we might actually win a cup that is if Pochecrappo and the board actually do want us to win something instead of just saying and pretending they do!
