Tottenham are showing strong interest in Amadou Diawara.
According to the football transfer rumours in British media, Tottenham will look to sign Napoli midfielder Amadou Diawara.
The Guinea international joined Napoli from Bologna for a fee in the region of 14.5 million euros in August 2016. His contract expires in the summer of 2021.
Diawara has played 61 times for Napoli since signing from Bologna, scoring two goals and creating one assists in that time.
The 21-year-old is considered to be one of the best midfielders in Guinea.
As a member of Guinea national football team, Diawara won two caps.
The Tottenham manager is in the market for a new midfielder.
Mauricio Pochettino is a long term admirer of Diawara and believes he can get the most out of the Guinea international.
According to Teamtalk, “Tottenham have been given a major boost to their hopes of landing a €38million midfield target in the new year. Napoli star Amadou Diawara is the player in question and has indicated that his next move could be to the Premier League. Mauricio Pochettino is looking to bolster his central midfield in January, with doubts over the long-term futures of Mousa Dembele, Victor Wanyama and Moussa Sissoko, and Diawara is believed to a major target for the Spurs chief. The Guinea international has struggled to break into Carlo Ancelotti’s Napoli side, leading to his agent demanding showdown talks with the Serie A club’s hierarchy over the player’s future. Napoli rejected a €38m bid for the player over the summer, while recent reports are suggesting that Wolves are ready to rival Spurs for the 21-year-old.”

Napoli are not in a position where they need to sell and would like to keep hold of the midfielder, but right offer may force the club to consider a deal.
Signing the 21-year-old in the winter transfer window would be a masterstroke from Pochettino.
Stylistically, he would be a great fit in Tottenham.
Whether he will join Tottenham or not remains to be seen.
