Tottenham could use Ben Davies in a deal for Roger Ibanez
According to a report via Corriere Giallorosso, Tottenham Hotspur are eyeing a significant addition to their defensive ranks as they look to secure the services of Roger Ibanez from Roma before the closure of the summer transfer window.
Tottenham could potentially utilise the talents of left-back Ben Davies in a potential exchange deal for the highly-rated 24-year-old Brazilian defender. While the prospect of parting ways with Davies may raise a few eyebrows, it highlights the club’s determination to bolster their defensive options.
Davies, a Welsh international, has been a prominent figure in Tottenham’s first-team setup, demonstrating his reliability and consistency throughout the previous campaign with 31 appearances in the Premier League.
However, the question arises as to whether Tottenham is prepared to sacrifice his services in their pursuit of Roger Ibanez. The Brazilian defender has enjoyed a commendable spell in the Italian league, showcasing his defensive prowess and providing stability at the back.
Joining forces with fellow new recruit Cristian Romero, Ibanez could potentially form a formidable partnership that would bolster Tottenham’s defensive capabilities in the upcoming season.
Tottenham’s priority in the transfer market is undoubtedly securing a top-quality central defender, but they must be cautious not to weaken their squad in other areas, particularly the left-back department.
Last season, the club occasionally utilised the versatile Ivan Perisic as a wing-back, but the experienced Croatian winger is expected to depart this summer, necessitating the acquisition of a reliable left-back.
Ibanez possesses the necessary attributes to excel in the demanding Premier League and could offer much-needed stability to Tottenham’s backline. His presence would undoubtedly provide a boost to their defensive solidity for the upcoming season.
