In a recent report from Football.London,  it was mentioned that Tottenham Hotspur are going to keep a keen eye on Josko Gvardiol’s World Cup performance as they hope to sign him in the next summer transfer window. It is understood that Gvardiol has signed a new 5-year contract with the German outfit but that only seems to be a ploy to earn a greater fee from the clubs interested in signing him. So Spurs would have to pay a huge sum if they wish to bring him to North London.

Gvardiol’s Impressive Numbers In The Bundesliga This Season

Gvardiol is experiencing a solid campaign at the Red Bull Arena as he has put in a series of impressive displays in the backline. He has found the back of the net on one occasion over 17 appearances for the German outfit so far across all fronts.

The Croatian international has performed consistently on the defensive end of the pitch but has not racked up impressive numbers as he has only averaged 0.4 tackles, 0.6 interceptions and 1.5 clearances per game in the Bundesliga. He has also been accurate when distributing possession from the back, after completing 89.1% of his attempted passes in the German first division (stats via whoscored).

Should Conte Bring Him To Tottenham Hotspur?

Gvardiol has been a solid presence in the defensive third. He can sense the danger quickly and make some clever interceptions inside his half. Standing at 1.85m, the Croatian can use his strong frame to dominate his opponent in the air and doesn’t mind clearing his line when the opposition is on the front foot.

The 20-year-old centre-back has caught the eye of several clubs through his impressive performances. The Croatian defender has the potential to become one of the best in Europe and could outclass many defenders in the next few years.

RB Leipzig knows his worth, so they have been wise to renew his contract as he could attract a huge sum if they agree on selling him. Even though Antonio Conte wants to bring him to North London, it would pose significant difficulty in doing so as Chelsea are also showing keen interest in acquiring him next summer, so that could mean the Lilywhites might end up paying more than they are willing to. However, his addition to the squad would bring more stability and strength to the defensive department.
