Tottenham keen on signing Inter Milan star Diego Godin, says Nicolo Schira

According to reputed journalist and transfer expert Nicolo Schira, Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing Uruguayan defender Diego Godin, who will be sold by Serie A side Inter Milan in the summer.

One of the best defenders in the game during his prime years, the 34-year-old has had a decorated career so far. After his contract with Atletico Madrid expired last summer, Godin joined Inter Milan, but hasn’t been able to perform at the expected level.

The 34-year-old has been in and out of the starting XI under Antonio Conte, making 16 appearances in the Serie A, in which he has one assist to show for. The Inter Milan manager is intent on securing a new centre-back this summer and as a result, the club could offload Godin as per Nicolo Schira.

The journalist further claims that Tottenham are keeping tabs on the seasoned campaigner. It is not the first time that we have been linked with the Uruguayan. Reports a few months ago claimed that manager Jose Mourinho was intent on signing Godin in order to add more steel and experience to our backline.

However, soon after, it was claimed that the club had ended the pursuit of the 34-year-old. But Schira claims otherwise, insisting that our club are very much interested in Godin, along with Lyon and Inter Miami FC. However, he does claim that the defender’s €6m-a-year are deemed to high by the club.

With Vertonghen leaving for sure, we need a defender to cover for the Belgian’s departure. However, Godin is not the answer. The Uruguayan is past his prime and hasn’t been at his best at Inter Milan. Signing him, with his huge wages, might not be the most prudent move by the club.
