Tottenham Hotspur is still looking for a midfield player, and the team has started to consider other options.
Since last summer, Spurs have been chasing Conor Gallagher of Chelsea; but, because of the difficulties in obtaining the Englishman, they have begun to look for other options.
According to transfer source Dean Jones, the Spurs may think about pursuing Ederson, an Atalanta midfield player.
Dean Jones stated in an interview with GiveMeSport that while Gallagher is Tottenham’s primary option, the 24-year-old is not his backup.
Jones emphasized that Ederson might not have the same intensity and stylistic fit as Gallagher, especially while playing as the Spurs team’s No. 8 player.
But he asserted that the midfield player was a realistic objective because the club’s previous managing director, Fabio Paratici, might suggest him.
“I find it difficult to picture Ederson as a Gallagher substitute because, from what I’ve been told, he has the same enthusiasm and is not the stylistic fit of a No. 8 that Gallagher would be in this Spurs squad. It’s also unclear how quickly Ederson would adjust to Premier League life.
Of again, since we know Paratici is still consulting, it’s possible that Paratici has recommended him. I can’t completely rule him out as a target because of it.
There aren’t many midfield options available to Ange Postecoglou right now. Because they are playing in the AFCON with their national teams, players like Pape Matar Sarr and Yves Bissouma are expected to be unavailable until the second week of February.
James Maddison has not yet recovered from his ankle injury, and Argentine midfielder Giovani Lo Celso sustained a muscular ailment during the FA Cup triumph against Burnley earlier this month.
Throughout the current Italian top division season, Ederson has started in 19 games for Atalanta and has contributed five goals and one assist. He is a vital member of the team.
An extra degree of deliberation is added by Paratici’s advice, considering his track record of successful signings.
