Tottenham need a new centre-back
Tottenham have, for some time, required reinforcements at centre-back.
Spurs’ previously dominant pairing of Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld has now broken up, with the former having departed the club, and the latter now looking some way past his best.
Elsewhere, both Eric Dier and Davinson Sanchez can be quite error-prone.
This just leaves Joe Rodon, whose lack of top-flight experience has been laid bare on a number of occasions this term.
So, if Spurs hope to get back to finishing in the Premier League’s top-four on a regular basis again, they probably need to bring in some reinforcements at the back.
Tottenham linked with Bayern’s Jerome Boateng
The Lilywhites have already been tipped to swoop for several defenders of late.
Inter Milan’s Milan Skriniar has been linked with Tottenham for some time now.
Another centre-back believed to be of interest to Spurs is Lyon’s Joachim Andersen, with a report on Tuesday having reiterated the club’s keenness on the Fulham loanee.
However, as mentioned above, reports from Germany suggest that the north Londoners are also keeping tabs on another defender.
That man is Bayern Munich centre-back Jerome Boateng, who is out of contract with the Bundesliga powerhouse in the summer.
According to Sport Witness, citing German outlet Bild, Spurs have Boateng on ‘top of the wish list’ for the upcoming summer transfer window.
It is added that the experienced stopper wants a three-year deal, whilst Ligue 1 side AS Monaco are also believed to be interested in his services:
