Tottenham consider summer move for Kondogbia

According to Sky Sports News, Inter Milan midfielder Geoffrey Kondogbia is on a list of potential targets for Tottenham Hotspur in this summer’s transfer window.

What’s the story?

Tottenham are expected to be busy this summer as head coach Mauricio Pochettino looks to boost his options for the 2018-19 campaign.

Midfield is an area that Pochettino wants to strengthen, especially considering that Mousa Dembele could well leave the capital club.

According to Sky Sports News, Lille midfielder Yves Bissouma is amongst Tottenham’s targets, but the Premier League outfit are also believed to be watching the developments surrounding Kondogbia, who has been on loan at Valencia from Inter Milan.

The Frenchman scored four times and registered four assists in 36 appearances for Valencia in all competitions during the 2017-18 campaign, and it is understood that he could be available for transfer in this summer’s window.

Would Kondogbia be a good signing?

Valued at £22.5m by transfermarkt.co.uk, Kondogbia started his professional career with Lens, before moving to Sevilla in the summer of 2012.

An impressive 2012-13 campaign convinced Monaco to sign the midfielder, and he spent two years with the principality outfit before joining Inter in June 2015.

The 25-year-old found it difficult to settle at San Siro, however, and left the Italian giants last summer for La Liga team Valencia, who enjoyed a strong 2017-18 season.

The powerful midfielder really was impressive on loan at Los Che last term, and can count himself a touch unfortunate to have missed out on a spot in the France squad for the 2018 World Cup.

Kondogbia is just what Tottenham need in the middle of the park, however, and there is absolutely no question that he has the attributes to be a star in the Premier League.
