Ankit is a 24-year-old, aspiring to have his voice heard through what he writes. Charismatic and frankly moral, adhering to his principles and beliefs. Out to search for a purpose in life and yet to settle on that matter.

In a recent report, football.london believes that Tottenham Hotspur are close to signing Middlesbrough full-back Djed Spence this summer. It has been mentioned that the English wing-back will cost around £20million, and the Lilywhites are capable of meeting their demands.

Spence’s Impressive Numbers For Nottingham Forest This Season

Djed Spence has enjoyed a solid campaign being on loan at Nottingham Forest this season. He has impressed Conte with plenty of impressive displays at the defensive end of the field. He has scored 3 goals and created 4 assists over 46 appearances across all fronts.

The London-born talent has garnered attention from various clubs as he has played an integral part in Nottingham Forest’s Premier League promotion this season. He has performed consistently after averaging 1.5 tackles, 1.6 interceptions, 1.0 key passes, 1.8 dribbles and 1.4 clearances in the EFL Championship. He has even been tidy with his ball distribution, completing 76.1% of his attempted passes in the highest division of English Football League (stats via whoscored).

Is Spence A Decent Fit For Tottenham Hotspur Boss Antonio Conte?

Djed Spence is a decent tackler of the ball, and he can track back quickly to clear the danger. He isn’t afraid of putting his foot into a tackle and can make some clever interceptions to win the ball back from the opposition. When on the offence, he can make a few decent runs from the right flank using his pace and create opportunities through his crossing abilities from the wide areas.

The 21-year-old is primarily a right-back but can also play as a right-sided wide player in the final third, which makes him ideal for Conte’s wing-back system. Given his age, he can serve as a long-term solution for the Spurs in what has seemed to be a problem area for them over the years.

Conte would be wise to bring him to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this summer, as the asking price of £20m seems to be a justified amount for the English full-back.
