In a recent report, Football.London stated that Tottenham Hotspur are set to step up their efforts for Fulham ace Tosin Adarabioyo this summer. It is believed that Spurs are eyeing a move to bring the English centre-back to North London in this off-season.
Adarabioyo’s Impressive Run Of Form At Craven Cottage Last Season
Adarabioyo put in a run of impressive displays at the centre of Fulham’s backline in the previous campaign. The 25-year-old made 29 appearances for the Cottagers last season, finding the back of the net once in the process on all fronts.
The Manchester-born talent has been a rock at the back based on his average of 1.2 tackles, 1.0 interceptions and 5.5 clearances per 90 minutes in the Premier League. He was even accurate when distributing possession from the back, as evidenced by his pass completion rate of 82.4% in league football (stats via whoscored).
His current contract at Craven Cottage is set to run out in the summer of 2024. Thus, it makes sense for Spurs to launch a cut-price move for Adarabioyo in this ongoing summer transfer window.
Is Adarabioyo A Decent Choice For Tottenham Hotspur Boss Angelos Postecoglu?
Adarabioyo is a solid tackler of the ball and can read the danger well to secure the ball back for his team on the defensive end of the field. He usually clears his lines when the opposition are on the front foot and excels at playing his way out from the back.
The English centre-half can use his strong 1.96m frame to dominate the opposition in the air. He already knows the Premier League well by now and won’t take much time to settle into life at Tottenham if they can find a way to bring him on board before the start of the new campaign.
Adarabioyo will definitely enhance the quality of the North London club‘s defence. He has what it takes to help Spurs challenge for a top-four finish in the Premier League next season. At 25, Adarabioyo will only get better in the coming seasons. Plus, he is good enough to earn a regular starting spot at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium which makes him a decent choice for Angelos Postecoglu to pursue in this off-season.
