Ryan Taylor: Ruslan Malinovskyi wants to join Tottenham Hotspur

According to Daily Express journalist Ryan Taylor, while speaking to Give Me Sport, he has revealed that Ruslan Malinovskyi wants to join Tottenham Hotspur this summer.

I believe Ruslan Malinovskyi wants to join Tottenham and Conte is open to signing him. But Atalanta would like a permanent deal, whereas I don’t think Spurs are entirely set on that at the moment

Spurs have been interested in the 29-year-old for some time now. Antonio Conte has bought in seven senior-team players this summer but looks like that could rise to eight now.

But the north London club are not the only ones interested in the attacking midfielder. Premier League rivals Nottingham Forest are also interested in the Ukrainian international.

Malinovskyi joined Atalanta from KRC Genk in 2019. Since then, he has been a crucial part of the Serie A side. An attacking midfielder by trade, he can also play as a central midfielder or second striker.

The 29-year-old was in fine form last season as he scored 10 goals and assisted another seven in 41 appearances for the Italian side across all competitions. He has continued such form this season too, scoring one and assisting another in two games for the La Dea.

An experienced and versatile player, Malinovskyi would make a fine addition to Conte’s squad. He could be deployed further up in Conte’s system and provide a backup to Dejan Kulusevski. The Ukrainian would also help in adding depth to the midfield department.

Spurs and Atalanta share a good relationship with each other. Such goodwill could be used to help facilitate a deal. With less than a week remaining before the transfer window closes, it remains to be seen if any deal can be worked out between the two clubs.
