Transfer News: Tottenham Hotspur target Renato Sanches agrees terms with PSG

Tottenham Hotspur target Renato Sanches has agreed on terms with Paris Saint-Germain, according to Get French Football News (h/t the Express).

Sanches, who joined LOSC Lille in 2019 from Bayern Munich, won the league title with them in the 2020/21 campaign, breaking PSG’s dominance over the league.

Now he could be on his way to Paris with the report claiming that he has agreed on personal terms with them. Paris is said to be close to appointing former Lille coach, Christophe Galtier as their new manager.

A former Bayern Munich player, Sanches joined Lille in 2019.

Sanches could enjoy the chance to team up with his former coach, with whom he won the French League. It is also claimed that PSG have agreed on terms with Inter Milan defender Milan Skriniar and Sassuolo striker Gianluca Scamacca.

So what next?

Sanches had a decent season, making a total of 32 appearances while scoring 2 and assisting 5 in all competitions. Antonio Conte could have used the midfielder’s service at Spurs, but that is now looking unlikely to happen.

The former Inter Milan manager has been revamping the midfield at Spurs having signed Rodrigo Bentancur in January and Yves Bissouma this summer. The Italian also has Pierre- Emile Hojbjerg, Oliver Skipp and Harry Winks.

Adding Sanches to this packed midfield would have helped in increasing the depth of the squad and also competition among players to start games. Sanches, a central midfielder by trade, can also play as a number 10 or right-midfielder when required.

The Portuguese would have made a fine addition to Conte’s Spurs as the Italian hopes to win some silverware with the Lilywhites next season. But that looks unlikely to happen and Spurs should turn their attention elsewhere.

Oliver Skipp could play an important role this season as he was a regular starter last season before getting injured. Now that he is back from injury, he could show Conte that he is still the same player the Italian started on a regular basis when he took over from Nuno Espirito Santo.

More Tottenham Hotspur New

Conte loves to play two midfielders and has the option of four to choose from. Signing another midfielder would not make so much sense as the player could have limited playing time. It would be better to strengthen elsewhere first, especially in defence.
