Spurs: A £13 million Titan would be a significant Sanchez upgrade.

Tottenham Hotspur have started the 2023/24 Premier League season well, defeating Manchester United after drawing away to Brentford.

Having started well, the club is still hoping to sign one or two more players before the transfer window closes next week.Ange Postecoglou has made a slew of signings since taking over in June, but despite the arrivals of goalkeeper Guglielmo Vicario and defenders Micky van de Ven and Pedro Porro (the latter’s loan deal made permanent), the work still feels completed.Indeed, Spurs conceded 63 goals last season, more than all but the three relegated teams and newly promoted sides Bournemouth and Nottingham Forest, and as such, one more move to improve the backline would undoubtedly be desirable.

What is the latest on Tosin Adarabioyo’s transfer to Tottenham?

According to RMC Sport journalist Fabrice Hawkins, while Fulham defender Tosin Adarabioyo wants to leave for Monaco this summer, the Cottagers are hoping Spurs would launch a bid and offer Eric Dier in return.Hawkins has stated that Fulham would like to recoup roughly €15 million (£13 million) for the 25-year-old, who is in the final year of his £37k-per-week deal at Craven Cottage.

How good is Tosin Adarabioyo?

Since joining Marco Silva’s team from Manchester City in 2020, the Manchester-born defender has made 107 appearances, guiding the club up from the Championship and solidifying their position as an established top-flight force.His recent performances – which have earned him praise from the likes of writer Muhammad Butt as “magnificent” – are proof enough that he would enhance Tottenham’s defence, and he would surely be an upgrade over the faltering Davinson Sanchez.

Spurs‘ Colombian center-back joined from Ajax in 2017 for a club record fee of £42 million, and he arrived with high expectations, with former manager Mauricio Pochettino even saying that he may become one of the world’s top defenders.It’s safe to say he’s flattered to deceive, with pundit Jamie O’Hara labelling the 27-year-old “one of Tottenham’s worst ever players,” having also compounded his situation by recording an average Sofascore rating of just 6.75 last season, very much at the epicentre of the club’s defensive woes and keeping only two clean sheets from 18 appearances.

Adarabioyo, on the other hand, has been thriving; last season, the Whalley Range-born titan averaged 6.89 league points per game, completing 82% of his passes and making a phenomenal 5.5 clearances each game.In fact, he is among the top 1% of centre-backs in Europe’s top five leagues for clearances per 90 over the last year, highlighting his impressive toughness and athleticism in batting away danger and protecting the goalkeeper’s net.Adarabioyo, a no-nonsense central defender, would clearly bolster Postecoglou’s backline in an instant and for a bargain fee, and with the increments being made for the side’s resurgence this season, the Fulham ace would prove to be a major success story if Spurs do ward off the competition for his signature.
