In a recent report, Italian news outlet Tuttosport stated that Tottenham Hotspur are showing interest in Torino right-back Wilfried Singo. It has been mentioned that the 21-year-old’s performances have impressed Antonio Conte so much that he insists on signing the right-back as the summer transfer window commences.
Singo’s impressive Season At Torino This Season
The Ivory Coast attacking full-back has three goals and four assists to his name from 36 appearances this season – in what has been an impressive one for the youngster.
The 21-year-old Ivory Coast international has had a prolific season so far averaging 1.6 tackles, 0.7 interceptions, 1.2 clearances, 1.2 shots, 0.7 key passes and 1.2 dribbles per game in the Serie A. Singo has distributed the ball well after making 79.8% of his attempted passes in the top tier of Italian football (states via whoscored).
Is Singo A Good Option For Tottenham Hotspur Boss Antonio Conte This Summer?
Wilfried Singo is explosive and he can make some impressive runs with the ball down the right flank. The youngster is a promising defender at the back when he is playing regularly on the field. He has the ability to create some meaningful chances in the final third, on top of which he can even capitalise on counter-attacks fancying his chances of finding the back of the net.
Singo is primarily a right-back but is versatile enough to fill in as a right-sided wide midfielder if needed. Thus, he would be a terrific signing for the Lily Whites this summer.
The full-back will admittedly add more depth to Tottenham Hotspur boss Antonio Conte’s starting XI. At 21, he has immense potential to play at a high level which makes him a good fit for the club. Conte would be wise to bring him on board as the summer transfer window commences.
