Tottenham are enquiring about a possible signing of Antonio Nusa from Club Brugge

Tottenham and Club Brugge are in talks for Antonio Nusa, per Fabrizio Romano. The Italian journalist also reveals that no concrete decisions have been made yet by the North London club.

Dutch media outlet HLN revealed further details about the contact between the two parties. As per the news, Tottenham are willing to pay more than €30 million for the Club Brugge man. However, the Norwegian star is not keen on an imminent move.

Antonio Nusa has featured in 26 games across all competitions for the Black and Blues this season. He admires the Premier League as per one of his recent interviews. However, should everything go according to the plan, he will be looking forward to moving to England only in the summer.

If the move goes through, Nusa will be the fourth Brugge player after De Ketelaere, Wesley and Kossounou to earn the club over €25 million. Premier League giants Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea showed interest in the 20-year-old last summer but the player remained in Belgium.

Signing Timo Werner should have been the solution that the Spurs boss was looking forward to. The German reprised his role as a left winger in his debut that came against Manchester United. Needless to say, the former Chelsea man did a fine job by registering an assist within the first 46 minutes with Spurs.

Bringing in Antonio Nusa will only make the left-winger position crowded. The only viable option is to switch Timo Werner’s position and bring him to the centre of the park. However, there is Richarlison who is doing a fine job. Pushing Werner further down will make it problematic for the well-set midfield.

The return of James Maddison will only create more issues for the Tottenham boss. Not to forget the Heung-min Son who will be back in a month after fulfilling his national duty.
