Tottenham Hotspur in pursuit of Bayer Leverkusen centre-back Piero Hincapie

According to the Ecuadorian publication Bolavip (h/t Football.London), Tottenham Hotspur are looking to secure the services of Bayer Leverkusen centre-back Piero Hincapie. He is touted as one of the best upcoming prospects to rise to the top following impressive spells in the Bundesliga.

Tottenham are interested in signing Hincapie as they look to add more quality to their backline. His performances for Leverkusen at such a young age have certainly attracted their attention, prompting them to make a move to land him.

Antonio Conte is claimed to be a keen admirer, having been left impressed by the 20-year-old’s displays. However, it is stated that the youngster will likely prove to be expensive as he is considered as one of the emerging talents in the German top flight.

Who is Piero Hincapie?

The Ecuadorian is a centre-back but can also deputize as a left-back when required. He has thrived in both positions this term and he has done well at such a young age. Having earned a regular spot at club and country, it is no wonder he is touted to reach further heights in the future.

The Bundesliga starlet has featured in 21 matches this season and has scored twice while providing one assist across all competitions. He also helped his side to five clean sheets in the process, which has seen them rise to the third spot in the league table. They are also in contention to win the Europa League, having topped their respective group.

The Leverkusen ace has shown not just the ability but also the grit to contribute to his team’s success. Despite being in the early stages of his playing career, he has showcased qualities like an experienced head with his knack to steal possession from the opposition. He is not afraid to throw his body on the line either when it comes to it.

Despite being only 183 cm in height, the Ecuador international also excels in winning aerial duels. He is sound-minded in finding his teammates from the back and is also not afraid to step up to get involved in an attack if space is provided to him. All in all, we can understand why Conte has become a fan of the talented defender. Now it is up to Fabio Paratici and co. to back him by getting his desired targets.

As a left-footed centre-back who can play as a fullback as well, he can slot into the left-hand side of the three at the back system at Spurs. Ben Davies is playing as a makeshift central defender, but we cannot depend on him in the long term. While he has been solid most of the time, there have been occasions when he has either been caught out or made some mistakes that have cost us.

With no other competition for the young defender just year, it would be wise if the North London side make a quick work of their interest. After all, the entry of their clubs reduces their chances to sign him in the future.
