Tottenham join Arsenal and Chelsea in the race to sign Villarreal starlet Yeremy Pino
The Villarreal winger has made a massive name for himself and is with the 26-man Spain squad at the 2022 FIFA World Cup. The Gunners have held an interest in him for some time.
But they have a potential headache on their hands if Pino makes a big impression on the international stage. Not only would a good display with La Roja increase his stocks, but it would also garner attention from elsewhere.
Chelsea and Spurs, for instance, have taken note of his progress with the Yellow Submarine. As per Romano:
“I’m aware of some recent Tottenham and Chelsea transfer rumours and I can say it’s normal that many clubs in England including London clubs are following Yeremi Pino.
“He’s a top talent and he’s represented by Stellar Group which is super strong in Premier League. At the moment there are no advanced talks yet, we will see in 2023; I’m not sure he’s going to leave in January unless a big proposal arrives.”
Pino’s contract situation will not make things easy for potential suitors. He has four and a half years left on his current contract at the Ceramica (Transfermarkt).
We can use a winger of Pino’s ilk. He is young, exciting, and likes to make runs down the flanks beyond the opposition’s defence.
Pino is also young, which may instil in him a sense of patience when it comes to playing time. The Spaniard will obviously have to battle for minutes if he does come here.

Richarlison and Dejan Kulusevski are themselves not regular fixtures in our starting XI. But it is clear that we need more depth on the bench, and Bryan Gil and Lucas Moura – for whatever reasons – have not won over the confidence of Conte when it comes to playing them regularly in place of Deki or Richy.
