Tottenham enter talks with Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Georgiy Sudakov

Tottenham Football Club have reportedly initiated discussions with the representatives of a highly-regarded midfielder from Shakhtar Donetsk, Georgiy Sudakov, as manager Ange Postecoglou seeks to inject fresh talent into his midfield department this forthcoming summer transfer window.

While Atalanta’s Ederson stands out as the primary defensive midfield option, with scouts left deeply impressed by the Brazilian’s performances, it seems that the pursuit of Shakhtar’s Georgiy Sudakov for the No.8 role remains very much alive.

Sudakov has steadily emerged as one of the most promising young talents within the Ukrainian Premier League over the course of the last couple of years.

Moreover, Sudakov has represented his national team, Ukraine, on 14 occasions, notching up one goal in the process.

Ange Postecoglou views the Ukrainian international as a perfect fit for the midfield setup at Tottenham, although stiff competition is anticipated, with Chelsea, Arsenal, and Liverpool also reportedly expressing interest in acquiring Sudakov’s services.

Presently, it is reported that no concrete offer has been tabled for Sudakov. Shakhtar Donetsk are understood to be holding out for a transfer fee in the region of €65 million to €75 million in order to even consider parting ways with one of their prized assets.

The pursuit of Georgiy Sudakov underscores Tottenham’s ambition to bolster their midfield options ahead of the upcoming campaign. With an eye on securing a top-four finish and competing at the highest level domestically and in Europe, Tottenham recognizes the need to strengthen various areas of the squad, and midfield reinforcement is evidently a key priority for Postecoglou.

Sudakov’s blend of technical skill, tactical intelligence, and versatility makes him an attractive proposition for clubs seeking to enhance their midfield capabilities. His ability to contribute both defensively and offensively, coupled with his potential for further development and growth, positions him as a valuable asset in today’s competitive transfer market.

As negotiations progress and the summer transfer window approaches, all eyes will be on whether Tottenham can successfully secure the signature of Georgiy Sudakov, or if rival clubs will swoop in to secure his services.
