Tottenham appear to be moving for Mark Gehi.
England’s ‘Daily Mail’ reported on the 9th (Korean time), “Tottenham are showing interest in English defender Gehi as Crystal Palace prepares to fight to protect another key player ahead of next season.”
Recruiting a center back has been a long-cherished wish of Tottenham and manager Antonio Conte. Coach Conte has been asking the club to sign a top-class center back since last summer. The players Tottenham were looking to sign were Inter Milan future Alessandro Bastoni and Yoshko Gbardiol, who became superstars through the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
Unlike usual, Tottenham opened their wallets wide, but the players did not want to go to Tottenham. In the end, Tottenham completed the signing of the center back by bringing Clement Lenglet on loan. As a result, Tottenham’s central defense has been greatly shaken this season, and its defensive power has fallen to the level of the lower half of the league. Eric Dyer and Ben Davies are exposing only disappointing performances. 스포츠토토
As a result, Tottenham is once again preparing to sign a center back. ‘Daily Mail’ explained, “Lengle’s lease expires in the summer. There are also doubts about the long-term future of Davinson Sanchez. Tottenham plans to sign two center backs next season, including Gehi.”
The reason why Tottenham turned to signing Gehi is that it is impossible to recruit the target they originally wanted. Bastoni and Gvardiol do not want to move to Tottenham. Milan Schkriniar, who will be released as a free agent at the end of this season, is currently very likely to transfer to Paris Saint-Germain (PSG).
Tottenham seems to have turned to signing Gehi, crying and eating mustard. Gehi is a former Chelsea youth academy. His performances at Palace earned him a place in the England national team. It is understood that Palace wants 45 million pounds (about 68.8 billion won) for the transfer fee of Gehi.
