With all the problems that have surrounded Tottenham Hotspur’s record signing Tanguy Ndombele in over the course of last season, it appears that the English Premier League club have locked on Ibrahim Sangare as a replacement.
The Côte d’Ivoire international has reportedly been a long-term target for the London-based outfit and with his current employers, Toulouse having been relegated to Ligue 2, a move away from the Stadium de Toulouse this summer looks certain.
According to Get French Football News, Spurs have made their admiration for the tall defensive midfielder clear, even though no formal bid for the 22-year-old has been made.
Although his lanky frame may appear to be a disadvantage, Sangare reads the game with apt intelligence and intercepts opponents from midfield.
As a raw talent in some aspects of his game like his release and first touch at times, he certainly has enough ability to improve the current crop of midfielders under Mourinho’s disposal which include new signing, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Harry Winks, Moussa Sissoko, Giovani Lo Celso, Gedson Fernandes, and the out-of-favour Ndombele.
He made 26 starts Ligue 1 and registered one assist.
