Speaking on Agreement program completedDean Jones has spoken about Tottenham Hotspur’s hunt for a new centre-back and Sofyan Amrabat.
Links to Morocco rise earlier this week, and it looks like Tottenham are getting closer to finalizing a deal for the Fiorentina midfielder.
The London club have been linked with a number of new midfielders this month, including Franck Kessie and Weston McKennie, but at this point Spurs see Amrabat as the most achievable of their goals. their midline.
What has been said about Amrabat?
Jones has shared what he knows about Tottenham and their hunt for a new centre-back.
“They are looking at other options right now. It is reported that Sofyane Amrabat is the person they are talking to and that is true. They have been chasing various midfielders in this window. They went after Weston McKennie and Franck Kessie, but as I understand it, Amrabat is the one they see as the most viable in this moment,” Jones said.
“In a sense it was a strange signing, because he didn’t play that much at Fiorentina, he wasn’t in the team that much. That’s not to say he’s not a good footballer, but he’s not quite like McKennie or Kessie, who some might love. ”
Can be done for a reason
Amrabat is an easier target than McKennie or Kessie for one reason – he’s not as good.
As Jones says, this is a player who doesn’t often play for Fiorentina. Meanwhile, McKennie and Kessie are key players for Juventus and AC Milan, two teams that technically outperform Fiorentina.
Spurs shouldn’t just sign for the sake of it, and perhaps they should wait until the summer when Kessie is out of contract to move to the Ivory.
