Tottenham hoping to sign England international centre-back Marc Guehi

The defensive department of the Tottenham Hotspur squad needs quality additions this summer.

Tottenham are hoping to sign England international Marc Guehi, according to the football transfer rumours in British media.

The England international joined Crystal Palace from Chelsea for a fee in the region of 23.34 million euros in July 2021. He is under contract until the summer of 2026.

The centre-back has made 30 appearances for Crystal Palace but is yet to score or register an assist for them this season across all fronts.

He has been touted as one of the brightest young prospects in England. As a member of England national football team, Guehi won 3 caps.

His performances have seen him become the target of many Premier League clubs including Tottenham Hotspur.

By the club’s own admission, Crystal Palace centre-back Marc Guehi is Tottenham Hotspur’s transfer target.

The Spurs have built a reputation for recruiting young talent from within Europe, predominantly targeting those with sell-on value and immense potential. They will have funds to spend in the market and it will be interesting to see how they approach the summer transfer window.

The former Chelsea man will add more quality to Tottenham’s defense.

According to the report, “Tottenham Hotspur are £20million short in their pursuit of Crystal Palace defender Marc Guehi. Defensive reinforcements will be required at Tottenham in the summer, regardless of who their manager is. At centre-back, they are looking for someone who can be a more reliable partner for Cristian Romero. Tottenham will be keeping their options open, but Guehi is one of their main targets. The Evening Standard revealed in February that the former Chelsea product is on their radar.”

Tottenham Hotspur might have to pay over the odds to sign the centre-back.

The Eagles will be ready to part ways with the centre-back should the right offer arrives.

Good signing for Tottenham Hotspur?

If Tottenham Hotspur are seriously considering a centre-back, Guehi could also prove to be a smart option.

Marc Guehi has all the skillset required to be a success story at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Therefore, it makes sense for Tottenham to step up their attempts to bring the English centre-back to their team.

How strong that interest is and whether Tottenham Hotspur will make a move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
