Tottenham eyeing move for Walid Cheddira

When it comes to the transfer market, Tottenham are simply one of the best in the business.

Reports in the British media claim that Tottenham are eyeing move for Bari forward Walid Cheddira.

The Morocco international was signed by Bari in July 2022 from Parma for a fee of 180,000 euros. He has a contract until 2025 with the club.

In 13 appearances for Bari, Cheddira has managed to score 13 goals, and create 5 goals for his teammates.

The 24-year-old is considered to be one of the best forwards in Morocco. Cheddira has earned 2 senior caps for the Morocco national team but is yet to open his goal-scoring account for his nation.

Walid Cheddira will be high in demand this winter, with him having enjoyed a sublime season for Bari this term. His impressive performances this season have apparently caught the eye of some of Europe’s big clubs.

The Spurs have earmarked Bari forward as their target, with Antonio Conte being a ‘huge admirer’ of the player. The report claims that Tottenham manager has extensively scouted Cheddira and is considering a move for the forward.

The former Parma man provides a unique blend between a classic center-forward and the modern striker. His finishing abilities when in and around the box will come as a massive asset to Antonio Conte’s side.

According to the report, “Tottenham like the look of Bari hitman Walid Cheddira and could sign him as a potential replacement for Harry Kane up front. He is an Italy-born Morocco international who is enjoying the season of his life. He has found the net 13 times in as many matches already this term. That includes a hat-trick in Bari’s Coppa Italia scalp over Serie A side Hellas Verona, which they won 4-1. Cheddira also managed two goals and an assist during Bari’s 6-2 league thrashing of Brescia on October 1. Spurs scouts must have told director of football Paratici about Cheddira’s incredible start to the season as he could now move to north London.”

It would take a huge offer from Tottenham to prise the 24-year-old forward from Bari.

Bari would be wise to keep the Morocco international, but if they do let him go expect it to be for a hefty sum.

Good signing for Tottenham?

The 24-year-old Morocco international could be a very good squad player for Antonio Conte over the next few years. He is at the peak of his career right now and Conte could bring out the best in him.

It will be interesting to see what happens when Tottenham come calling for Cheddira this winter.
