Tottenham Hotspur’s stance on signing Piero Hincapie from Bayer Leverkusen in January

Tottenham Hotspur will look to loan 21-year-old defender Piero Hincapie back to Bayer Leverkusen until the end of the season if they sign him in January, as per the Mirror.

The Ecuador international is on Spurs’ radar as they look to bolster a backline which consists of a makeshift left-back in Ben Davies and hardly any quality depth. Davinson Sanchez and Japhet Tanganga are simply not world-class right now.

Joe Rodon was loaned out in the summer to Rennes and doesn’t seem to have a future in manager Antonio Conte’s starting XI by the look of things. Hence, we need a new centre-back – a world-class one or one that at least possesses the potential to become one.

Hincapie does fall in that category. At his age, he was starting for Ecuador at the 2022 FIFA World Cup and the left-footed centre-back can be a good option to play instead of Davies.

Hincapie to Spurs?

The Welshman hasn’t been poor per se, but we can use a natural centre-back in that position. Hincapie is rugged and will only get better with time.

But it remains to be seen if we can actually sign him. Hincapie has a contract until the summer of 2026 (Transfermarkt) and if we plan to loan him back, then a January move for him won’t make the most sense.

It will help us shrug off competition for him, but it’s better to wait it out and see his situation in the summer. He does also have interest from Barcelona, Napoli, and Inter Milan, which is why some would fancy a January move so we can beat those teams in the race for Hincapie.

Right now, we need someone who can come and instantly slot into our backline from day 1. Cristian Romero is the only one who feels undroppable and even Eric Dier has been average for the majority of the campaign.
