Tottenham should consider swoop for Barcelona star this summer, reportedly available

Barcelona defender Nelson Semedo could be allowed to leave the club this summer.

Marca report that the Portugal international has offers from England and Italy, and that teams are willing to pay €35 million (£30 million).

Semedo joined the Catalan giants in 2017 from Benfica and has done fairly well in his battle to be a regular with Sergi Roberto.

But this season the Spaniard has emerged as Ernesto Valverde’s go-to, and the Semedo would prefer to play more often at the Nou Camp. He is now said to be considering his future.

One club who could do with a new right-back this summer, is Tottenham Hotspur.

 

TBR’s view

Right-back has been something of a problem position this term for Mauricio Pochettino.

Kieran Trippier has majorly disappointed following a brilliant World Cup in Russia, and there have been rumours he could leave for Napoli this summer (via The Daily Mail).

Serge Aurier has still yet to fully convince for the north Londoners and Kyle Walker-Peters appears to still be untrusted by the manager.

Semedo would be a fine acquisition for Tottenham. He has bags of pace and energy and is good both offensively and defensively.

Semedo featured against Tottenham for Barcelona when the teams faced off in this season’s Champions League group stages, so Pochettino has already seen him up close.
