Technical support issues
Tottenham Hotspur has found a new defensive midfielder to protect Son Heung-min.
"Tottenham is aiming to recruit Wilfred Ndidi (26, Leicester City) to improve its defense in the midfield," Spanish media "Pichahes" reported on the 8th.
Tottenham is considered one of the favorites to win the Premier League this season. After 11 matches in the Premier League, he is currently in second place after Manchester City (Manchester City) with 26 points with eight wins, two draws and one loss.
Thin players are mentioned as factors of anxiety. The dominant analysis is that it will suffer in the long run due to its thin player base compared to big clubs such as Manchester City and Arsenal, which are competitors for the championship.
In particular, there are great concerns about the composition of the midfield. Papasar and Yves Bissouma have been performing well this season, but there are not enough rotation resources. The possibility of Pierre-Emile Hoibier's transfer cannot be ruled out.
In the end, he decided to recruit Ndidi. According to the report, Tottenham have already begun negotiations with Leicester City to bring Ndidi in the winter transfer market.
Ndidi is considered Leicester's silent hero. Since joining Leicester in 2017, he has consistently ranked at the top of the Premier League tackle category. He also recorded 2.3 tackles per game last season.
He continues to play in the Championship (Second Division) this season. Ndidi has scored three goals and four assists in 15 games throughout all competitions. It was still enough to be regarded as Leicester's core.
Tottenham are not the only team that wants Ndidi. I'm watching Ndidi for Barcelona. The plan is to bring in Ndidi, whose contract with Leicester expires in June 2024, as a free agent.
There is also a possibility that the recruitment battle will be prolonged. "Pichahes" said, "Tottenham wants to pay a small transfer fee in the transfer market in January next year and bring Ndidi in. However, there is a possibility that he will wait until next summer when he is released as a free agent," he said.
