In a recent report, The Daily Express mentioned that Tottenham Hotspur have identified Crystal Palace ace Marc Guehi as a target. It is understood that Spurs are keeping a keen eye on the English talent ahead of the January transfer window.
Guehi’s Impressive Run Of Form At Selhurst Park
Guehi is having a solid campaign at the London club after he put in a series of impressive displays on the defensive end of the field. The English sensation made 13 appearances for Crystal Palace this season but has failed to score or assist a goal for them thus far in all competitions.
The 23-year-old has been a rock at the back based on his average of 1.3 tackles, 0.8 interceptions and 4.9 clearances per game in the Premier League. He has even been careful when distributing the ball from inside his half as evidenced by his pass completion rate of 89.7% in the top tier of English football (stats via whoscored).
Guehi is under contract at the London club until the summer of 2026. Thus, Spurs would have to launch a convincing offer if they are serious about recruiting the English centre-back this January or at the end of this campaign.
Is Guehi A Decent Fit For Tottenham Hotspur?
Guehi is a solid tackler of the ball and can sense the danger quickly to earn the ball back for his team inside his half. He usually puts his foot through the ball when the opposition are on the offensive and excels at playing his way out from the back.
The English sensation is currently playing some of his best football at Selhurst Park and has all the skillset to be a success story at Tottenham Hotspur if Angelos Postecoglu can find a way to bring him on board next year.
We can expect Guehi to add more bite and steel to Spurs‘ defensive department. He has what it takes to increase competition for places within the North London club‘s first XI. He might even help Tottenham compete across all fronts in the coming years.
At 23, the Crystal Palace star has his best years ahead of him. Therefore, Guehi would be a good fit for the London giants‘ needs in the long run.
