Alasdair Gold has dropped an update on reported Tottenham Hotspur transfer target Djed Spence.
What’s the word?
In a recent video posted on his YouTube channel, the football.london journalist revealed that, despite there being no recent developments in Fabio Paratici’s reported £20m pursuit of the Middlesbrough right-back, the deal is very much one to keep an eye on, with the 21-year-old believed to be extremely keen on a move to north London this summer.
Regarding Spurs’ interest in the England U21 international, Gold said: “No developments on Djed Spence as of yet, he’s another one to keep an eye on because I know people within his camp were expecting some developments last week, which didn’t really come.
“As I said before, it seems like Djed Spence does favour a move to Spurs with the attraction of Champions League football and the fact that he would get a fair bit of game time with Spurs as well.”
Supporters will love Gold’s update
Considering just how exciting a prospect Spence undoubtedly is, in addition to the fact that it had previously been reported the right-back’s transfer was expected to be completed by the beginning of last week, Gold’s update that Tottenham’s move for the youngster is very much still on is sure to be news the Spurs faithful will love.
Indeed, over his 42 Championship appearances for Nottingham Forest in 2021/22, the £7.2m-rated talent was one of the stories of the season, scoring two goals, registering five assists and creating six big chances for his teammates, as well as making an average of 1.0 key passes, taking 0.6 shots and completing 1.8 dribbles per fixture.
These returns saw the former Fulham starlet average a quite remarkable WhoScored match rating of 7.05, ranking him as the Reds’ sixth-best player in the league – playing a key role in Steve Cooper’s side’s promotion to the Premier League.
As such, when taking into account Spence’s potential for future development, it is clear for all to see that the England youth international would make an exceptional addition to Antonio Conte’s backline – leading us to believe that Gold’s latest update will certainly have left Tottenham supporters buzzing.
