Tottenham hold an edge in the race for Crystal Palace star Marc Guehi

According to Dean Jones from Give Me Sport, Crystal Palace’s talented defender, Marc Guehi, has been making waves in the Premier League, attracting attention from top clubs as the summer transfer window approaches.

Among the interested parties are North London rivals Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur, who are both keen on securing the 22-year-old’s signature. In recent times, Guehi has had a really upwards graph.

Renowned journalist Dean Jones, writing for Give Me Sport, suggests that Tottenham believe they have an advantage over their arch-rivals in the race to sign Marc Guehi. The Spurs hierarchy are confident that they can offer the promising youngster guaranteed first-team football, a factor that could sway his decision in their favour.

Tottenham’s need to bolster their defensive line is no secret, with the team’s leaky backline being a major concern last season. The arrival of Cristian Romero has been a step in the right direction, but the Argentine needs a reliable partner to solidify the defence.

Guehi’s impressive performances for Crystal Palace have demonstrated that he possesses all the attributes to thrive at a top club, making him an ideal candidate for Spurs. Considering how bad our defence is, it’ll be a massive upgrade.

Meanwhile, Arsenal are also in pursuit of defensive reinforcements, aiming to add depth to their squad. The injury to William Saliba towards the end of the previous campaign highlighted the need for a stronger defensive unit.

However, it is Tottenham’s promise of regular first-team football that may tip the scales in their favour. Guehi understands that playing regularly is crucial for his development and ambitions, particularly with the upcoming Euro 2024 on the horizon.

Moreover, Tottenham’s vision and ambition under their new manager could be another factor that sways Guehi’s decision. The club has recently appointed a highly regarded coach who prioritizes nurturing young talents and playing an attractive brand of football.

Let’s hope we can try and convince Guehi to choose the N17. He’ll be an excellent signing to make.
