Tottenham Hotspur Launch €15m Offer For This Serie A Playmaker: Should Conte Snap Him Up?

A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent print edition, Corriere di Bergamo mentioned that Tottenham Hotspur have launched a €15m offer for Atalanta playmaker Ruslan Malinovskyi. It has been stated that Spurs are eager to secure the services of the Ukrainian talent during this January transfer window.

Malinovskyi’s Decent Form In Serie A This Season

The gifted attacking midfielder is enjoying a solid campaign with Atalanta after producing a few impressive performances for them on the attacking third of the field. Malinovskyi has managed to find the back of the net once and earn a couple of assists in 14 league appearances for the Italian outfit.

The 29-year-old has seen most of his game time come as a substitute which explains why he is only averaging 1.4 shots, 0.9 key passes and 0.5 dribbles per game in Serie A. He has even been accurate when distributing possession deep inside the opponent’s half, as evidenced by his pass success rate of 79.5% in the Italian top tier (stats via whoscored).

Malinovskyi’s current contract at Atalanta will expire at the end of this campaign. Hence, Tottenham have got a good opportunity to go all out to recruit him when the transfer window commences at the start of next month.

Should Tottenham Hotspur Boss Antonio Conte Snap Malinovskyi Up Next Year?

Malinovskyi can strike the ball with power and accuracy from long range and has got the vision to cut open the opposition defence with some decisive passes in the final third. He is also quite clever with his movements in and around the opponent’s penalty area. Malinovskyi mainly operates in the number ten position but can also play as a box-to-box midfielder or act as a secondary striker if his manager tells him to do so.

The Ukraine international can chip in by scoring and creating his fair share of goals up top. However, he has to find a way to be more productive on the attacking third of the pitch.

Still, at 29, Malinovskyi is currently enjoying the peak years of his playing career and could play a crucial role in Antonio Conte‘s match-day squad if Spurs can find a way to get him on board.

We can expect Malinovskyi to bring some firepower to the North London club‘s attack. He could even help Tottenham compete for some major honours in the future. Thus, Conte should consider snapping him up this January or at the end of this season.
