Timothy Castagne on Tottenham Hotspur’s radar

Atalanta’s Belgian defender Timothy Castagne has emerged as a potential transfer target for Tottenham Hotspur ahead of the summer window, according to Foot Mercato (h/t Football.London).

The 24-year-old Castagne came through the ranks at KRC Genk before joining Atalanta in 2017. The right-back has been grown into a key player for the Serie A outfit, who have been doing very well in the Italian top flight in recent seasons.

Castagne has featured 19 times in the 2019/20 campaign, contributing with two goals and assists apiece. Injuries have curtailed his game time this season. The 24-year-old has also become a regular for the Belgian national team, making seven appearances till date, netting two goals.

Castagne’s contract with Atalanta will expire in the summer of 2021. This has seemingly attracted the interest of our club, with a summer move being planned (h/t Football.London).

The right-back slot has been a cause for concern for our team this season. The club allowed Kieran Trippier in the summer without signing a replacement. Kyle Walker-Peters was also allowed to leave on loan in January by Jose Mourinho, leaving Serge Aurier as the only right-back in the squad.

However, the Ivory Coast international has been a liability at the back, warranting the signing of a new right-back ahead of next season.

To that end, Castagne has the potential to a good addition to the squad. The Belgian has been playing at a high level for a number of years now and has accumulated plenty of experience during his time with Atalanta. Moreover, with his contract expiring in 2021, he is unlikely to command a large transfer fee as well.
