'Very Ledley-esque': Some Spurs fans praise footage of £26m man Paratici's reportedly after
Spurs are being linked with loads of players this summer in wake of Fabio Paratici’s arrival at N17.
Tottenham endured a difficult season last time out and so could really do with bolstering their ranks.
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 defender being linked with Tottenham is Maxence Lacroix, who has a 30m euro (£26m) price tag, according to Footmercato.
Fabrizio Romano claimed on the Here We Go podcast (23 min 55 sec) that Tottenham have set their sights on the 21-year-old.
Spurs reportedly eyeing 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.
The Spurs Web has shared a highlights reel of the Frenchman, via the Wolfsburg Twitter account, and plenty of fans loved what they saw.
Him and Rodon breaking people up would just be unbelievable to watch— Zeus⚡️ (@Zeus1882x) July 7, 2021
He is rapid as well. Recorded third quickest time in Bundesliga last season this is with the likes of Bailey and Davies etc.— TanguySZN 🤍🇩🇰 (@Rico_Spurs_COYS) July 7, 2021
I like this. I know we all want a £50m signing But him and Andersen would improve us instantly— JJ (@JoeyJonesie1) July 7, 2021
