Tottenham interested in Valencia’s Geoffrey Kondogbia

According to a report from Foot Mercato (h/t Express), Tottenham Hotspur are considering making a swoop for Valencia midfielder Geoffrey Kondogbia, who is also on the radars of rivals Manchester United.

The 27-year-old Kondogbia has been with Valencia since 2017, having initially joined on loan from Inter Milan, before making the move permanent in 2018. The Central Africa international has grown into a first-team regular at the Mestalla, racking up 99 appearances in which he has scored 7 goals and assisted 6 more.

Geoffrey Kondogbia on Tottenham’s radar

Kondogbia featured 34 times across all competitions in the 2019/20 campaign. He contributed with two goals and an assist. However, as per a report from Marca (h/t Express), Valencia could be forced into selling the former French international, as the club failed to secure European football for next season.

Indeed, Los Che finished ninth in the La Liga standings for 2019/20. With no Champions League or Europa League football for next term, they will have to generate cash inflow from player sales. Kondogbia, to that end, could be one of the players that the Spanish heavyweight decide to part ways with. (h/t Express)

This has alerted Tottenham Hotspur, as per a report from Foot Mercato. (h/t Express)

Spurs have been long-term admirers of the 27-year-old and have been linked with him numerous times in the past. But with Valencia now willing to sell, the club has a realistic chance of landing Kondogbia this summer.

The report also adds that Kondogbia could be available for a transfer fee of around just £20m, which in the current market is quite a bargain. However, we will have to face competition from Manchester United for the midfielder’s signing.

In addition, the club is also interested in Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg. So, a move for two central midfielders in the same window looks a touch unlikely. Although, that could change should Jose Mourinho decide to sell Tanguy Ndombele.
