Hellas Verona ready to sell Antonin Barak this summer amidst Tottenham Hotspur interest

According to the Italian news outlet CalcioMercato (h/t Football.London), Hellas Verona are willing to sell Antonin Barak this summer as Tottenham Hotspur have shown an interest to sign him. He is in line to depart his current club at the end of this season and could make his way to England.

Tottenham have identified Barak as a transfer target ahead of the next campaign. He has been in fine form this season and has also attracted attention from a host of clubs in Italy. That could make things difficult for the English side if they want to secure his services this summer.

Verona are ready to part ways with the Czech Republic despite joining them only at the start of this term. As such, Spurs can now get their hands on the midfielder for a fee of around £16.8million in transfer fees.

Summer signing?

The 27-year-old has been terrific throughout this season in the Serie A, having netted 11 goals and assisted four times from 28 matches. His excellent displays have helped his side to punch above their weight and hold a respectable ninth position in the league table so far.

We could use an attacking midfielder like Barak, considering we lack someone of his profile in the midfield. After all, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Oliver Skipp, Rodrigo Bentancur and Harry Winks are not exactly regular threats in the forward areas when it comes to goal involvements.

Those who watched Antonio Conte’s Inter Milan would know how crucial it is for the boss to have midfielders like Barak. After all, the likes of Marcelo Brozovic and Nicolo Barella played a crucial part in Inter’s success under Conte.

Similarly, Barak can be the creator and the attacking presence from midfield at N17 for the next season. Moreover, it is also good to have players with different play styles as it offers more options when it comes to game management during matches.

The current asking price is not too expensive either for someone who has impressed since joining his current club last summer. However, we need to be on our toes considering how there is competition from unknown Italian clubs.

Hence, it would be wise on our part to complete a transfer at the earliest and put this matter to bed to prevent any setbacks. That being said, whether Daniel Levy and co. would do that or not need to be seen in due time.

A football enthusiast who is madly in love with the beautiful sport.
