Spence has emerged as a key target for Antonio Conte this summer after enjoying a stunning campaign on loan with promotion winning Nottingham Forest last term. Spence loved his time at Forest and was said to be open to a return to the club. However, the lure of Champions League football – not to mention a lucrative contract – is hard for the right-back to turn down.
Spurs boss Antonio Conte has apparently told the board to do whatever it takes to sign the ‘unbelievable’ Spence. And in fairness to Levy, Paratici and co, it looks like they’ve done just that.
Tottenham are making quick moves this summer already. Should Spence sign this weekend, it will be three incomings already for the club.
TBR’s View: Djed Spence Can Shine With The Right Attitude At Tottenham
If Spence can carry on the form he’s shown at Forest and really buy into Conte’s methods, then the sky is the limit really.
He is a tremendous athlete already and has all the makings of a top quality wing-back at PL level. Of course, he needs to keep working hard and not dip back towards some of the attitude a certain Neil Warnock picked up on!
At £20m, this will be a bargain buy for Spurs if Spence can continue to do well. On the whole, this is a signing Spurs fans can be happy with.
