Loads of Tottenham fans have been reacting to the latest transfer news, as reports claim they are eyeing a swoop for centre back Djene Dakonam.
According to Foot Mercato, Tottenham are pushing to sign Getafe centre back Dakonam, who has been in superb form in the last 18 months.
The 26 year-old has attracted interest from Arsenal and West Ham, but Spurs look poised to win the race as Mauricio Pochettino plots a €35m (£31m) move for the Togo international.
Dakonam is a late bloomer, struggling to break into the top leagues until this season. He has repaid Getafe’s faith in him though, taking La Liga by storm in the last year.
Across 36 appearances, the 5 ft 10 centre back won two aerial duels per game, 2.4 tackles, 2.2 interceptions and made a staggering 5.2 clearances per game.
He will surely not be first choice if he makes the switch to North London, but his no nonsense style of defending would certainly be a boost to squad depth.
Fans don’t seem too impressed though, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
Why don’t we just go for De Ligt ffs

He’s actually a solid defender he had a great season for getafe finishing 8th after they just got promoted. He pocketed Messi drawing 0-0 at the Nou Camp and getafe didn’t concede too many goals last season. He’s a solid defender trust me.
