Tottenham Hotspur are “really close” to acquiring Bayer Leverkusen defender Edmond Tapsoba, according to Italian writer Rudy Galetti.
Tottenham have been quite busy in the transfer market this summer as the team rebuilds under new boss Ange Postecoglou.
Tottenham have already signed Dejan Kulusevski on a permanent basis from Juventus, as well as Guglielmo Vicario and James Maddison.
They have also allegedly accepted personal terms with Manor Solomon and, according to the most recent source, Wolfsburg center-back Micky van de Ven.
According to Telegraaf reporter Mike Verweij, the player has agreed to a contract extension with the Spurs until 2028.
Tottenham‘s quest of defensive reinforcements does not stop there, as the club is still attempting to sign Edmond Tapsoba from Bayer Leverkusen.
Tottenham‘s interest in the youngster has already been revealed by Fabrizio Romano, who believes he would be a “perfect” addition for the club.
And Galetti now claims that Tottenham are on the verge of signing the German club’s center-back.
“After finalizing the deals for Maddison and Vicario, Tottenham is now working on Edmond Tapsoba,”
he informed GiveMeSport:
Tottenham are rumored to be on the verge of signing the Bayer Leverkusen center-back.”
Tottenham’s defensive line has been recognized as an area for development, and if the rumours are correct, the acquisitions of Micky van de Ven and Edmond Tapsoba would greatly bolster their backline.
Several players, notably Eric Dier and Davinson Sanchez, are set to depart Tottenham as part of the team makeover.
The possible additions of Tapsoba and van de Ven would solve the club’s defensive difficulties, offering good reinforcements for the upcoming season.
