Spurs: Paratici to open talks for Singo

Tottenham Hotspur are interested in a deal to bring Wilfried Singo to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the summer transfer window.

What’s the talk?

That’s according to a report by Italian publication Tuttosport (via Sport Witness), which claims that Fabio Paratici is ready to open talks with Torino on a right-back deal.

The report goes on to state that Antonio Conte is believed to be a fan of the 21-year-old and would support a summer coup, however the Serie A side are not thought to be open to parting ways with the Ivory Coast international unless A substantial offer is submitted, with €20m (£17m) as the club’s asking price.

Conte can fire Emerson with Singo

Considering how impressive Singo has been for Torino this season, coupled with how much Emerson Royal has struggled since their €30m (£25m) move to north London last summer, it’s easy to see why. Paratici and Conte are reportedly interested in a deal for the Ivorian ahead of the club’s 2022/23 campaign.

Indeed, in his 29 Serie A appearances this term, the £25m-valued full-back, who is also comfortable operating as a full-back or right midfielder, has been one of Ivan Juric’s standout players, scoring three goals, providing four assists and creating four big chances for his teammates, as well as taking an average of 1.2 shots and making 0.7 key passes per game.

The £5.4k-a-week defender has also impressed in the more typical metrics for his position, averaging 0.7 interceptions, 1.7 tackles, 1.3 clearances, 24.2 passes, completing a dribble and winning 5.9 duels, with a success rate of 57. % – per luminaire.

These comebacks have seen the player that Matteo Bonetti claimed.it has been a revelation” for Granata averaged an extremely impressive SofaScore match rating of 6.98, ranking him as Torino’s joint sixth-best player in the Italian top flight.

By comparison, in Emerson’s 23 Premier League outings this season, the £25m-rated right-back has been rather less impressive, scoring a goal, registering an assist and creating a big chance, as well as averaging 0.7 interceptions, 2.3 tackles, 28.3 passes, completing 0.6 dribbles and winning 5.3 duels – with a shooting rate of 55% – per game.

These returns have seen the £62k-a-week player Jonathan Woodgate dubbed “horrendous” earlier this season averaging a disappointing 6.87 SofaScore match rating, ranking him Spurs’ 10th worst player in the English top flight.

As such, with the Brazil international already linked with a move away from north London this summer, Conte would be wise to cash in on Emerson while the interest is there, before reinvesting the fee received from the sale of the 23-year-old. . in a move to the much more promising Singo.
