Tottenham Hotspur interested in Japan and Eintracht Frankfurt playmaker Daichi Kamada

Tottenham Hotspur are interested in the signature of Japan and Eintracht Frankfurt star Daichi Kamada, according to German outlet BILD (h/t Express).

However, Spurs are not the only side eyeing the 26-year-old. Borussia Dortmund are being linked with a move for the attacking midfielder. BVB currently have captain Marco Reus, USMNT star Giovanni Reyna and Julian Brandt capable of playing in the number 10 position.

Roma and Everton are also in the race for the Kamada. Roma are seventh in the Serie A at the moment. Jose Mourinho has done relatively well with the Giallorossi. On the other hand, Frank Lampard is struggling with the Toffees.

While many clubs are pursuing the Japanese, Frankfurt have no intention of letting him go. The Eagles want to tie down their playmaker to a new deal. They are desperate to keep a hold of him and will offer the 26-year-old a new contract.

Tottenham are thinking about going after Kamada in the January transfer window. Antonio Conte is looking to strengthen Spurs’ engine room.

The Italian gaffer can call upon Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Yves Bissouma, Rodrigo Bentancur, Oliver Skipp and Pape Matar Sarr. However, only the Uruguayan has shown his creative abilities this season. The other options are more defensive-minded.

Kamada had a fruitful campaign with Japan at the 2022 World Cup. The playmaker started in every fixture for his nation in Qatar. The Samurai Blue made it to the round of 16 of the tournament. They only fell short on penalties against Croatia.

The 26-year-old has also been in fine form for Frankfurt in the current campaign. In 22 appearances in all competitions for the Eagles, he has scored 12 goals and provided four assists.

With creativity seemingly an issue for Spurs under Conte this season, Kamada is a wise option to go after. However, it remains to be seen whether the club are able to get the Japan international’s signature in the coming months.
