According to Football Transfers, Tottenham has made Jarrad Branthwaite, a defender for Everton, one of their top transfer targets in an attempt to sign him.


Spurs are reportedly interested in Branthwaite, and his reported £75 million price tag indicates the enormous value he could have for the North London team.


Branthwaite, who is only 21 years old, has impressed this season with his defensive prowess while playing for Sean Dyche’s Everton team.




His strong numbers demonstrate a versatile skill set, which makes him a desirable addition to the Spurs defense.


Branthwaite’s impressive tackles won percentage [fbref] of 83.3% highlights his defensive durability, an essential quality in the hard-charging Premier League.


In addition, his five clearances per game indicate that he is a skilled player who can read the game, neutralize threats from the opposition, and release defensive pressure.



The Spurs, who might be looking for defensive reinforcements, stand to gain from Branthwaite’s impressive 3.63 interceptions and tackles per ninety minutes, which highlights his defensive prowess and foresight.


Spurs’ defensive options are further enhanced by the young defender’s aerial prowess, which boasts an impressive 67.7% aerial duels won per game.


Branthwaite’s skill in air battles gives defensive stability and an extra threat in set-piece situations in a league known for its physicality.


The £75 million valuation may seem high, but it takes into account Branthwaite’s age, potential, and the state of the market.

Spurs can solve their immediate defensive needs by investing in a promising player like Branthwaite, who also gives them a long-term asset with room to grow.


Given that he is more composed than Cristian Romero and doesn’t seem to put himself in situations where he receives yellow or red cards, he could be a game-changer for Ange Postecoglou.


When he approaches his prime in a few years, Branthwaite, at age 21, might emerge as one of the league’s best center backs if he can prove his value.


Spurs are forced to rely on players like Emerson Royal in the middle of defense because Micky van de Ven is out, and even when Eric Dier is healthy, he still seems like a disaster waiting to happen.


Clubs always quote higher fees and if the North London outfit can get Branthwaite for around or a little over £60million, they must consider this deal.
