Tottenham Hotspur was supposedly leading the race to sign Stanis Idumbo Muzambo a few weeks ago.


But according to Fabrizio Romano, Spurs have now missed out in the race to capture the talented Ajax player.


Tonight, the transfer insider went on X to announce that Sevilla has signed Idumbo Muzambo to a deal.


Romano continued, saying that the 18-year-old had signed a contract that would last until 2028 and that the agreement with Ajax was “done, confirmed.”

The “most concrete avenue” for Idumbo Muzambo, according to Belgian publication DH in December, would lead to Tottenham.


Due to the young player’s contract in the Netherlands expiring at the end of the current campaign, Spurs made an offer for a “project of four years.”


Idumbo Muzambo was reportedly intended to be signed by Tottenham and started in the first team for the remainder of the season, with a summer evaluation to follow.


Stanis Idumbo Muzambo is not available to Tottenham Hotspur.

Spurs will have been optimistic about their chances of signing him given their current level of influence and Ange Postecoglou’s recent housecleaning.


In fact, Radu Dragusin turned down Bayern Munich’s offer to join Tottenham, and players who made that decision, like Pape Matar Sarr and Destiny Udogie, have prospered.


But in the end, it really comes down to “you win some, you lose some.” Idumbo Muzambo has selected Sevilla in this case. Could it have been possible for them to provide football right away?


If that’s the case, choosing them over Spurs—where he could have needed to wait and possibly accept a loan—might have been ideal for his growth.


Tottenham may be proud with their transfer activity thus far this month, despite the slight disappointment. They still have plenty of time to talk with – and perhaps sign – other players.
