Croatian news publication Index has reported that Arsenal and Chelsea would like to have RB Leipzig centre-back Josko Gvardiol in their ranks.
It comes after the centre-back was branded Tottenham’s top summer target by the Daily Mail, as Antonio Conte looks to strengthen his back line in north London.
The 20-year-old would now be ahead of Sven Botman and Pau Torres on Tottenham’s wishlist, and he has experience at both center and left-back. This could come in handy with Conte playing a three-man system with a left centre-back role.
Spurs have faced Eric Dier, Cristian Romero and Ben Davies lately, with Joe Rodon and Davinson Sanchez on the bench, as well as Japhet Tanganga injured.
The Index report stated: “A little over a month ago he had just turned 20, and already this week all the media are buzzing with fabulous figures that could pay off at the expense of his pay.”
“Chelsea, Arsenal, Juventus and almost every big European would love to have our national team player Joško Guardiola in their ranks, a guy just past his teenage years and already a target for Europe’s biggest clubs.”
Spurs Web Notice:
Gvardiol is already playing at a high level at the tender age of 20 and could represent both an upgrade from the current squad and an investment for the future. Tottenham need a new left centre-back and he could be the perfect addition.
