Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with a shock transfer from Robin Koch forward of the summer season…
What’s up with Robin Koch at Tottenham?
That is in accordance with Soccer Insider, who report that Spurs are preserving tabs on the Leeds United defender and have shortlisted the 26-year-old titan as they search defensive reinforcements.
The north London aspect imagine they may snag Koch on a cut price, ought to the Yorkshire aspect be relegated to the Championship on the finish of the present marketing campaign.
The Germany worldwide is believed to be amongst a number of key gamers set to go away Elland Street if they’re relegated. Till then, Koch, valued at round £16million by Transfermarkt, may have only one 12 months left to satisfy his £40,000-a-week deal.
Leeds would have crushed Spurs to signal Koch in the summertime of 2020.
Is Koch a great signing for Tottenham?
It might be fairly a disconcerting transfer for sporting director Fabio Paratici this summer season and whereas Spurs’ defensive issues are evident, Koch is hardly the reply.
Maybe surprisingly, Antonio Conte’s aspect are abysmal on the again.
The Lilywhites conceded extra targets than some other Premier League high 12 aspect, had been as soon as once more knocked out of the FA Cup by decrease league opposition and could not get previous an AC Milan aspect struggling within the knockout levels of the Champions League. .
Cristian Romero’s dangerous and erratic nature has finished extra hurt than good since his comeback from Argentina’s World Cup triumph, whereas the opposite two spots within the Italian’s again three have been contested by rivals. terribly inconsistent stars like Eric Dier, Ben Davies, Clement Lenglet and Davinson Sanchez.
Koch, an everyday starter for back-to-back relegation candidates Leeds, will hardly be an improve on any of the aforementioned gamers.
As soon as lambasted for his ‘awful-looking’ protection by journalist Beren Cross and dubbed ‘poor’ by Jermaine Beckford, the German is a part of a backline that has let extra targets slip away than Tottenham’s defensive unit , whereas three of Javi Gracia’s centre-backs common a greater WhoScored score than him too.
It means Conte – or his seemingly predecessor as his future on the membership all however confirmed to be over – shall be left with one other disappointing possibility within the £13m misfire – and one that may nonetheless depart a crippling defensive void in N17.
