Tottenham Open Talks Over Potential £53m Deal As Poch Eyes 1st Summer Signing

Tottenham have opened talks over a deal to sign Geoffrey Kondogbia and Valencia could be ready to do business if £53m is put on the table

The summer transfer window is drawing to a close and managers are working hard to secure last minute deals so we’ll bring you all the latest gossip from around the globe. Today, Tottenham are in talks to sign Geoffrey Kondogbia…

Tottenham have opened talks over a deal to sign Geoffrey Kondogbia and Valencia could be ready to do business if £53m is put on the table, according to reports via TeamTalk.

Mauricio Pochettino is keen to strengthen his squad in order to turn Spurs in to genuine title contenders but he’s yet to make a single signing this summer as chairman Daniel Levy has been frustrated with his attempts to land the Argentinean coaches top targets.

Tottenham are reportedly willing to sell Mousa Dembele and Moussa Sissoko this summer so Pochettino is on the look out for midfield reinforcements before the window closes on August 9th and Kondogbia has emerged as a possible target for the 46-year-old.

It looks like Tottenham have stepped-up their interest as TeamTalk are citing France Football as claiming that Spurs have opened talks with Valencia over a potential deal to sign the powerful central midfielder.

Kondogbia came through the youth ranks at Lens and has played for Sevilla, Monaco and Inter Milan already during his career before sealing a permanent transfer to Valencia following a successful year on loan.

However, the 25-year-old could already be on the move as the French outlet says Tottenham could be ready to test Valencia’s resolve with a formal bid for Kondogbia’s services over the coming days.

Any deal won’t be cheap as the Frenchman has a release clause in his contract set at £71m [€80m] but Tottenham are highly unlikely to pay that much as Levy is a shrewd negotiator known for enjoying a good deal.

However, France Football, via TeamTalk, suggests that Valencia could be willing to do business at £53m [€60m] as that would give them a solid profit on their investment so Tottenham may be more tempted to do a deal at that sort of price.

We’ll have to wait and see how negotiations progress over the coming days but Kondogbia would provide stiff competition for the likes of Victor Wanyama and Eric Dier if Tottenham are able to agree terms over his signature this summer.

    After supporting “disappiontingham” all my life ,I’ve learnt not to have great expectations,but it’s difficult isnt it . I’m. sure they’ll sign someone ( there you go – more expectations) but whoever it is ,has got to be a massive improvement on last seasons acquisitions.. As brilliant as the first team is ,they can’t afford to get it wrong again. Maybe that’s why they’re being extremely cautious before they buy the right Stella player. ( I’ve done it again haven’t I)

    Never gonna happen, Levy up to his usual tricks trying to get his own way no matter what. His ego getting in the way for another transfer window, thrives on the press calling him a master negotiator and it’s more important to him than the team improving.
    At some point no chairman will deal with him and then we’ll be in even worse trouble

    Agree, Levy is all talk and does not come up with the goods!

    Oh no not another foreign player. Pochettino keeps wanting them they don’t fit in and he doesn’t play them. Try playing our youngsters instead and save some money

    Should have signed Zaha for £70m. Would be a snip in the current market and he was the outstanding player outside of the top 4 clubs last season – even better than most players in the top 4 clubs come to think of it

    I can’t understand why Spurs make fake news to sign players. Why not just go for them and have them. In the current market £45m for Zaha is excellent value.
    Few years ago we did similar noises about Hazard and William, and they both ended at Chelsea. Sometimes Levi is and absolute prat.
    As for pinnochio he’s is scared to manage experienced players – like Wegner was at Arsenal in the last 10 years or so. Youngsters okay
