Tottenham Hotspur is making a concerted effort to bolster their defensive line following a disappointing 2022-23 English Premier League campaign. The Lilywhites gave up the most goals among the top 10 clubs in the league, with a total of 63, and are now looking for reinforcements to shore up their backline.
According to Sporty9ja, Tottenham is keeping a close eye on Tosin Adarabioyo, a promising defender who is eligible to represent the Nigerian national team. Adarabioyo’s contract with his current club, Craven Cottage, is set to expire in 2024, and recent talks regarding a new deal have broken down. This has prompted Craven Cottage to consider cashing in on his sale sooner rather than later.
Recent reports from the Evening Standard suggest that Spurs have identified Adarabioyo as one of their potential options to strengthen their center-back position. As new head coach Ange Postecoglou looks to revamp Tottenham’s backline, the club is reportedly prepared to invest heavily in securing Adarabioyo’s services.
However, Tottenham is expected to face competition from French clubs Rennes and Monaco in their pursuit of the former England youth international. Despite this, the potential addition of Adarabioyo would provide Tottenham with a promising young talent who has already showcased his abilities in English football. His height, physicality, and ability to read the game make him an attractive prospect for any team needing defensive stability.
It remains to be seen whether Tottenham will be able to sign Adarabioyo and solve their defence problems before the new season begins. Negotiations and conversations are ongoing, but if they are successful in securing his services, it could go a long way towards improving Tottenham’s defensive circumstances and helping them to achieve their goals for the upcoming season.
