Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly keeping active tabs on Inter Milan’s midfielder Geoffrey Kondogbia, currently on loan with Valencia. This news has sparked a frenzy of activity on the social media with the fans delivering a mixed report.
It was reported by Sky Sports that the French midfielder is being watched by the Lilywhites’ scouts with a view to making a bid. It was reported that Tottenham were looking at the 24-year-old central midfielder as a long-term replacement for the injury-prone Mousa Dembele.
Kondogbia is entering the final 18 months of his deal with Inter. Although he dropped down the pecking order at the Italian giants, his excellent start at Valencia has raised hopes of a new deal.
There is a bit of confusion here as Valencia believe that they have a right to buy him at the end of the season as they have an agreement with Kondogbia. However, Tottenham believe that there is no such thing and hence want to keep pursuing the French international.
The club fans are split between those thinking that the midfielder would be an excellent signing and those that think that he would not be an able replacement for Dembele.

I don’t know. But you should have him and let @mousadembele join the reds

He’s been on the radar for a couple of years but I always thought it was links from dodgy Italian websites or usual suspect journalists

Lol he’s not
Dembele is having a poor season but is phenomenally good. Kondogbia was shocking at inter, very poor to say the least.
