Report: Brighton now pushing to sign ‘really good’ player, after claims Conte told Tottenham Hotspur to go and get him
Earlier in the window, Tottenham manager Antonio Conte had told the club to go and sign Estupinan, as he was a big fan of the Ecuadorian international.
However, a deal never materialised and the full-back’s most likely destination now appears to be the south coast.
Brighton pushing to sign Estupinan
A move for Estupinan at point in the window wouldn’t make sense for Tottenham.
It’s an exciting sign for Brighton with Conte being a fan of the defender, and Graham Potter’s side are quickly becoming experts at finding hidden gems in the transfer market.
Spanish football expert Sid Lowe described the left-back as a ‘really good’ player, and the former Watford man was one of the best front foot defenders in La Liga last season.
