'Keep an eye on that': Alasdair Gold suggests signing Tottenham could now make after Joe Rodon's exit
Journalist Alasdair Gold has suggested that Tottenham Hotspur could move towards signing another defender after allowing Joe Rodon to leave the club.
Rodon completed a move to French outfit Stade Rennais yesterday and will spend a season on loan in Ligue 1.
Antonio Conte has already brought in one centre-back after adding Barcelona’s Clement Lenglet on a season-long loan but could now look to further bolster the position.
Alasdair Gold suggests Tottenham signing
Football.London journalist Alasdair Gold thinks Spurs could now step-up their attempts to bring in another centre-back after Rodon’s exit and Japhet Tanganga’s possible departure.
Speaking in his latest YouTube video, he said: “Japhet Tanganga, there was that interest from Milan. It will be interesting to see whether that goes.
“And like I’ve said, certainly if both Rodon and Tanganga have ended up going out of the club, but I wonder even just with Rodon, I think they’ll go for another centre-back.
“So, keep an eye on that in the remaining month of the window.”
Tangnga has been heavily linked with a move to Serie A champions AC Milan this summer, with Spurs and Milan reportedly restarting talks yesterday.
After Rodon’s exit, if Tanganga does complete a switch to Italy it could leave Conte a slightly short in the centre-back position.
The Italian currently has Eric Dier, Cristian Romero, Ben Davies, Davinson Sanchez and Lenglet for three centre-back places.
But if Conte wants cover in each role, Spurs would be one player short if Tanganga was to leave. And this means that Conte could yet make another defensive signing in the remaining month of the transfer window.
It seems that Spurs could be in the market again for another central defender this summer as the club look to bolster Conte’s defensive options.
