Paratici has reportedly set his sights on £26m 'tank' who's so 'rapid', Spurs fans should be buzzing - TBR View
Spurs have a lot of work to do this summer to bolster their ranks ahead of next season.
But that’s exactly why Tottenham brought in Fabio Paratici.
Spurs’ defence was a particularly weak point last season, so it’s not surprising to see the club linked with defenders.
In addition, Paratici could well have to replace Toby Alderweireld, who reportedly wants to leave.
One player who Spurs fans should get really excited about is Maxence Lacroix, who is being linked with the Lilywhites.
Fabrizio Romano claimed on the Here We Go podcast (23 min 55 sec) that Tottenham have set their sights on the 21-year-old.
Lacroix has a 30m euro (£26m) price tag, according to Footmercato, which is a bargain considering his age and potential.
One of the Bundesliga’s fastest players
Lacroix only joined Wolfsburg from Sochaux last summer but he enjoyed a superb maiden season in Germany.
He quickly established himself as a mainstay in Wolfsburg’s defence and made 29 Bundesliga appearances.
According to the Bundesliga website, Lacroix was the fourth-fastest played in the German top flight last season at 22.2mph.
He was also 18th in the overall tackle-winning stakes with 339, and 20th in aerial duels with 90.
Lacroix’s efforts helped Wolfsburg maintain the second-best defence in the Bundesliga and qualify for the Champions League.
Lacroix in action
Earlier this week, The Spurs Web shared footage of Lacroix, originally posted by Wolfsburg.
And plenty of Spurs fans were blown away by his efforts:
