According to Calciomercato, as cited by Team Talk, Tottenham Hotspur are among the clubs interested in the services of Alessandro Florenzi. It is believed that AS Roma are ready to cash in on the versatile star in the upcoming January transfer window, with Inter Milan and Fiorentina also keen on securing his services. He could, however, cost around €25 million.
Florenzi’s spell at Roma
Florenzi is a beloved figure at AS Roma, being one of the few homegrown stars for the Giallorossi. He has been playing for the club since 2002 when he was 11 years old. Ten years later, he was promoted to the senior side, especially after an impressive loan spell at Crotone.
Since then, Florenzi has become a key player for Roma over the years. He has made nearly 300 competitive appearances for the Italian giants. His commitment and versatility have proven to be useful assets for any coach, especially the current boss Paulo Fonseca, who has used Florenzi to sort of bandage his injury crisis.
That being said, Roma must look to improve their squad if they are to pose a serious threat for the title. Florenzi’s departure, in that regard, could help make the primary step in their bid to undergo a major squad overhaul. His current contract expires in 2023, so the club’s €25 million asking fee seems fairly reasonable.
How can Florenzi help Tottenham?
Florenzi would be a smart piece of investment for Tottenham. The Lilywhites have lacked the presence of a reliable right-back following the departure of Kieran Trippier in the summer. Serge Aurier has struggled with consistency while Kyle Walker-Peters has barely managed to make an impact.
Florenzi, in that regard, could provide Mourinho with more options in that slot. Moreover, his ability to play as a central midfielder as well as a wide midfielder would make it easier for the Portuguese to shuffle his squad. The Italian is also known for his aggression and fighting spirit, which tunes in well with Mourinho’s style of play.
Not to mention, Florenzi has a vast amount of experience at the highest level of football, having featured in 223 Serie A matches while winning 35 caps for Italy. This experience could help him integrate quicker into the Premier League football and given his versatility, he could certainly emerge as a key utility player for Spurs.
