Tottenham Hotspur have been showing an ample amount of interest in signing Ibrahim Sangare from Ligue 1 side Toulouse FC for quite some time now. The Ivorian preferably plays as a defensive midfielder and has made 84 appearances for the French club in all competitions. Les Violets got relegated to Ligue 2 this season after they finished last in The French top-flight, which might force the midfielder to part ways with the club and find a new challenge elsewhere.
Spurs manager Jose Mourinho have been on a hunt to sign a perfect defensive midfielder to dominate in the middle of the park alongside the likes of Giovani Lo Celso, Delle Alli, and Harry Winks. It looks like the Ivory Coast international will be the top-notch steal if they can come in terms with him as his dynamic presence might give them an edge.
Tottenham are one of the best counter-attacking sides in Europe, but they lack support in the middle of the park when they lose the ball while attacking. They are poor at defending fast breaks through the middle, and that’s why they are desperate to sign Les Violet’s midfielder to fix all their midfield and counter-attacking problems. The 22-year-old midfielder has sumptuous blocking skills, intercepting the through balls and a solid tackler of the ball. The young prodigy’s resume fits the kind of midfielder the Spurs boss wants for his tactical system in his two of the most used formations. In 4-3-2-1 and 5-2-2, the defensive midfielders get to command the two-way play, and with Ivorian’s box-to-box gameplay may prove influential to the North London side.
