Rumours About Tottenham’s Approach To Sign Fiorentina Midfielder Emerge Again

Published

on

A report from The Sun, reveals that Tottenham are making a move for Matias Vecino who could act as a replacement for Eric Dier. Dier has been strongly linked to Manchester United (Goal.com), as manager Jose Mourinho looks to add some steel to his midfield.

The newspaper claims Spurs are “preparing a move” for the midfielder. However, he only signed a new contract at Fiorentina last May, which ties him to the Italian club until 2021. This means that they could ask for an inflated fee.

Spurs’ keenness to make a move for Vecino comes in the wake of Eric Dier being heavily linked to Manchester United.

Dier, who joined the club from Sporting Lisbon, has been superb for Tottenham in his two years at the club so far. He endeared himself to the North-London side’s supporters by scoring an injury time winner on debut, against bitter rivals West Ham United. He has also become crucial for England, as a man to do the ugly work in midfield.

Italian media outlet TuttoMercatoWeb, has also been leading with stories that Spurs are lining up a move Vecino, 25-years old.

The central midfielder came to Fiorentina from Uruguayan club Nacional, in 2013. After a couple of loan spells in Italy, he has become a mainstay in La Viola’s side.

Last season he made 40 appearances in all competitions, playing as a deep lying playmaker. Vecino scored 4 goals and assisted 4, in the process.

It was his most impressive campaign to date, leading to the interest of bigger clubs from across Europe. Spurs have placed the greatest interest in the player and manager Mauricio Pochettino has reportedly highlighted the Uruguayan as a man to bolster his strong squad.

Although, any potential deal may hinder of whether Eric Dier moves to Manchester United or not. Rumours have been circulating that United are close to signing Chelsea’s Nemanja Matic (Manchester Evening News), who is also a deep-lying midfielder. If they prove to bare any truth, then Dier may not be required.

Vecino, who has appeared 13 times for Uruguay to date, appears to be waiting in the wings.
