Nuno Espirito Santo could move for Wolves captain Conor Coady if he decides to play a 3-4-3 at Tottenham, says Express & Star journalist Luke Hatfield.
Some reports have suggested that Nuno and Tottenham are indeed interested in signing Coady this summer.
The 28-year-old was such an important player for the Portuguese manager during his time at Molineux, playing close to 200 games under him.
Ultimately, for Hatfield, a reunion would make sense, especially if Nuno plans to use a back three at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this upcoming season.
“He’s certainly a player Nuno likes,” Hatfield told FFC. “He was vital for Nuno at Wolves and if he wants to play the 3-4-3 we saw at Wolves so often, particularly in his first couple of years in charge, then there are few better than Conor Coady in that position in that central role.
“I suppose Nuno will maybe look around and look at the players he’s currently got on his hands at Spurs, will anyone fit the mould for him in that respect. And if not, maybe he does look around for players that he’s worked with previously.”
According to The Athletic, Tottenham are looking to strengthen at the back, with two new central defenders possibly coming in.
Given his Premier League experience and knowledge of Nuno’s system, perhaps Coady really could be one option the north London club are considering ahead of the new campaign.
Whatever the case, there does look like there will be changes at the back for Tottenham. The same Athletic report claims that Toby Alderweireld could be on his way out of the Premier League outfit after expressing his desire to leave.
