Update on Perr Schuurs joining Spurs

According to reputable news source The Times, Tottenham Hotspur is “planning to bring in” Torino center-back Perr Schuurs.

Who will Spurs next acquire?

There is still work to be done at Spurs despite the official completion of the contracts for goalkeeper Guglielmo Vicario, teenage centre back Ashley Phillips, defender Micky van de Ven, playmaker James Maddison, winger Manor Solomon, and striker Alejo Veliz.

Ange Postecoglou had a fairly successful preseason, giving Lilywhites supporters a good look at the Australian’s attack-minded style of play. Postecoglou is now fully prepared for the 2023/2024 season.

Giovani Lo Celso and Ivan Perisic, among others, made strong preseason impressions, giving Postecoglou some food for thought as this Sunday’s away game against Brentford approaches.

He may already have a good concept of his ideal starting lineup and matchday squad, but the Spurs head coach freely admits that additional moves are required in several areas.


A star defender is needed, and Posteocoglou has addressed the issue numerous times over the past week. After all, his team’s 63 league goals allowed last season were more than any other English top tier team above 15th in the standings.

Last weekend, Postecoglou stated, “It’s not finished yet.

“That centre defensive region needs to be strengthened for us. We require back-up defenders who can play well in an attacking formation. In the next days, we’ll be aiming to recruit a couple from that region.

After their thrilling last preseason warm-up match against Barcelona, the Tottenham manager once more emphasised the need for additional defenders.

Postecoglou said, “We have to watch what happens with outgoings.

However, there is a chance to add another centre following van de Ven.

Another central defensive signing before September 1 appears to be very much in the cards, depending on certain departures, with Serie A star Schuurs as a main target.

The Times, whose dependable reporters Gary Jacob and Constantin Eckner provide an update on Tottenham’s connections to the Dutchman, claim as much.

After Spurs acquired van de Ven, Schuurs, who won many league championships during his time at Ajax, came to their attention.

If they can get rid of any unwanted players, it’s thought they’re “planning to bring in” the 23-year-old. Torino value their colossus at about £28 million.

There hasn’t been much spoken about a potential Spurs offer or their plans for Schuurs, but it seems like he’s the next big thing.

Perr Schuurs’ calibre is what?
Last season, Schuurs made 30 Serie A appearances for Torino under manager Ivan Juric, outperforming every other player on the team in terms of successful tackles and clearances per 90 (WhoScored).

The Netherlands’ star defender excels in playing the ball out from the back, averaging an impressive 88.2% of the time over 22/23.

Schuurs was also referred to as a “mountain” defender for Torino by journalist Josh Bunting in a late 2022 article on X, so the player is not without credentials.

He might be available for about £28 million and is still a young player, according to Daniel Levy, the chairman of Tottenham.
