TOTTENHAM URGED BY NUNO TO SIGN NEW DEFENSIVE TARGET

Nuno Espirito Santo has urged Tottenham to sign Granada centre-back Domingos Duarte, according to Fichajes.

Tottenham began their season in fine fashion with a Premier League win over champions Manchester City. However, they have come crashing back down to earth after a rotated lineup lost the first leg of their Europa Conference League play-off to Pacos De Ferreira.

It is clear that more depth is required in the Spurs squad before the transfer window closes. They are particularly looking to strengthen in defence, an area they wanted two signings in.

They are half-way there after adding Cristian Romero to their squad from Atalanta earlier this month. But the search is still ongoing for their next centre-back addition.

The emergence of Japhet Tanganga may have affected their plans, but they still seem to be pursuing another centre-back. For example, they remain interested in a move for Bologna defender Takehiro Tomiyasu, as per Calciomercato.

But over in Spain, Fichajes claim Nuno has found a potentially more cost-effective option. The source suggests he has “demanded” the signing of his Portuguese compatriot Domingos Duarte from La Liga outfit Granada.

Duarte has been with Granada since 2019, when he joined them from Sporting CP after a loan spell with Deportivo La Coruna. He played in the first leg of their Europa League quarter-final loss to Manchester United last season, a few months after becoming a full Portugal international. Now, he could be ready to take the next step in his career.

Duarte to fit within Tottenham budget

Fichajes note that Duarte would be a “low cost” option, which Nuno is aware of. He reportedly feels the 26-year-old would be a shrewd addition to a Tottenham squad that he wants to challenge for the top four again.

Even though a move to Tottenham would be a “high quality jump” for Duarte, Nuno reportedly feels he is capable of adapting. What’s more, the fact that his contract only runs until 2023 means he won’t be as expensive as some other targets.

It is not exactly clear how much Duarte may cost, or whether he is Tottenham’s priority, but he would be a new name for them to consider.
