Alasdair Gold understands Tottenham Hotspur could sign defensive duo this summer

Alasdair Gold understands Tottenham could be set for an impactful defensive revamp this summer as the North London outfit look to reinforce its backline.

One such player catching the eye of Spurs’ scouting team is the young Dutch talent, Micky van de Ven. The centre-back has impressed many with his performances in the Bundesliga, and his potential transfer to Tottenham is now a topic of serious discussion.

Valued at €30 million, Van de Ven’s signing could prove to be a wise investment, as his commanding presence and ability to read the game could significantly bolster Spurs’ defensive capabilities.

Another name on Tottenham’s radar is the talented Edmond Tapsoba from Bayer Leverkusen. The 6’4″ defender brings physicality and aerial prowess to the table, attributes that could provide Tottenham with much-needed stability at the back.

According to Alasdair Gold, there have been talks between Tottenham and the respective clubs of both Van de Ven and Tapsoba. These discussions indicate the seriousness of the club’s intent to make significant moves in the transfer market.

However, securing these defensive gems might depend on Tottenham offloading some of their fringe players, with Davinson Sanchez, Japhet Tanganga, and Joe Rodon among those potentially on the departure list.

The need to strengthen the defensive unit is evident. Tottenham’s defensive frailties were exposed on numerous occasions last season, conceding a total of 63 goals in the Premier League.

The prospect of signing these defenders is not only exciting for fans but also serves as a clear statement of intent from Tottenham’s management. It demonstrates their commitment to building a team capable of challenging the best in the league.
