Transfer News: West Ham United enter race to sign Sven Botman amidst Tottenham Hotspur interest

According to Evening Standard (h/t Sunderland Echo), West Ham United have entered the race to facilitate a move for Sven Botman amidst interest from Tottenham Hotspur for a potential transfer. He has been a rising superstar over the past year or so, and he would undoubtedly be a great prospect for any team.

Botman is expected to leave Lille in the summer transfer window making him one of the superstars to look out for. West Ham have expressed their interest in him as they look to bolster their backline to back David Moyes. They are looking to build a strong project and keep developing moving forward.

The 22-year-old centre-back is also targeted by Newcastle United, who tried their best to sign him back in January. But the French club refuted their approaches but could be helpless this time around. That being said, AC Milan are still in the pole position to secure his services after this season.

More concerns for Spurs

The entry of the Hammers would definitely make things difficult for us regarding our pursuit of the Dutch international. However, that makes it all the more important why we need to get him to our squad. After all, by signing the defender, we can kill two birds with one stone.

Bringing the Ligue 1 ace to N17 would make sure that we can bolster our defensive line while ensuring that our direct rivals would not strengthen in the process. That being said, our main concern would be Milan, who are leading the transfer race at this instant.

Newcastle cannot be taken lightly either, especially when the Lille star has himself suggested that a move to St. James’ Park would not be motivated by money. With not many months left for the summer transfer window to arrive, we must pip the Rossoneri to lead the race.

More Tottenham Hotspur News

The Dutchman plays on the left-hand side of the central defence for the Ligue 1 club and has done a great job in that role. We do require an addition in that position, considering how Ben Davies is the only reliable option for Antonio Conte. Even then, Davies is not a natural centre-back, which means that he would have certain limitations.

Davinson Sanchez and Joe Rodon are cast aside by Conte while Japhet Tanganga is currently out for the remainder of the season. So spots can be freed up to bring in Botman, but whether that will happen or not would need to be seen in the coming months ahead of this summer.
