Transfer News: Tottenham Hotspur target Wilfried Singo linked with Arsenal
According to Football.London, Tottenham Hotspur target Wilfried Singo has been linked with a move to join Arsenal ahead of the summer transfer window. He has earned lots of plaudits for his performances in the right wing-back role for Torino, which has resulted in attention from elsewhere.
Singo is in line to enter the final year of his current contract with the Italian side at the end of this season. He has made himself known among Fabio Paratici and Antonio Conte with his splendid displays, and they could potentially target him to address Tottenham’s issues in the right wing-back role.
That being said, Spurs would have to deal with competition for the Ivorian’s signature, with the Gunners being linked with a potential transfer for the defender. That being said, it is still unknown whether the Serie A club or the player himself would entertain an offer for a move after this term.
Singo to Spurs or Arsenal?
Conte’s side could use a right wing-back addition this summer, considering how they have run into issues in that position. Matt Doherty enjoyed a rapid rise before a season-ending injury stopped his progress. However, he deserves to have another go following his impressive performances.
Emerson Royal has been a disappointment since moving to N17 from Real Betis last summer. We could decide to call it a day with him if the Italian coach no longer wants the defender’s services moving forward. Emerson dropped his best performance of the season against Liverpool recently, but it is far too early to say that he has finally overcome his struggles for now.
In such a case, Singo can be considered a top-notch reinforcement, looking at how impressive he has been in Serie A so far. Moreover, he has not reached his full potential just yet, giving Conte more room to work with when it comes to the wing-back development.
Perhaps, we could even sign the 21-year-old for an attractive price considering how his contract is nearing its expiry. However, the links to Mikel Arteta’s side should worry us as they are also going through a rebuilding phase at this moment.

As such, it would be best if Paratici would try to gain an edge by approaching Torino to discuss a potential move ahead of the competition. That would give us information on whether they are willing to sell the player or not in the future.
Finally, we can also know Singo’s stance regarding our interest in signing him. Let’s wait and see what lies in store for us regarding Singo in the coming months.
