On Jules Kounde

The centre-back has caught the eye of the two London clubs this summer after impressing at Sevilla. The player is just 1.78m tall, something which can be a hindrance for a centre-back. However, Tuchel’s back 3 could protect that. The below analysis shows Kounde’s impressive ball progression and promising aerial abilities.

Tottenham’s need for Jules Kounde

Fabio Paratici and Nuno Espirito Santo are on a mission to revamp the Tottenham defence.

Journalist Fabrizio Romano revealed that the club considers Cristian Romero as the number one target. However, Tottenham do have a ‘Plan B’ in place. The club will open talks with three different defenders with the same amount. Tomiyasu for €18m, Milenkovic for €15m and Zouma for €25m are mentioned as backup options for Spurs as per Romano.
