Tottenham ready to offer £50m for Jules Kounde; Milan Skriniar lined up as Plan B
Kounde came through the ranks at French club Bordeaux but it was only after he made the switch to Sevilla in 2019 that he exploded into a rising superstar of the game. The 22-year-old was one of the Spanish outfit’s best players as they went on to win the 2019/20 UEFA Europa League.
Kounde followed it up with yet another solid season in 2020/21, establishing himself as one of the best central defenders on display in La Liga. Fabrizio Romano had recently claimed that Tottenham admire the 22-year-old France international, as the club eyes defensive reinforcements this summer.
Now, it is being said by the aforementioned report that the club is already working on a £50m proposal to try and entice Kounde from Sevilla this summer. And, in case a move for the Frenchman fails to materialise, the Lilywhites are said to have identified Inter Milan centre-half Milan Skriniar as the alternative option. (h/t Express)
Skriniar is a player that Tottenham are well aware of, having tracked him for the good part of the last summer transfer window. Having enjoyed a brilliant 2020/21 season with Inter Milan, whom he helped win the Serie A title, the Slovakian seems to be back on the radars of the North London club. (h/t Express)
