Tottenham Hotspur are interested in a deal to bring Matthias Ginter to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the summer transfer window.
What’s the talk?
That’s according to a report from Sky Sports News (via the Daily Mail), which claims that Fabio Paratici is set to battle with Juventus, West Ham United and Aston Villa for the signing of the Borussia Monchengladbach centre-back, who is ready. become a free agent upon expiration of his contract at Borussia-Park at the end of the season.
Conte can fire Sánchez with Ginter
While Antonio Conte and Paratici have reportedly made the left-sided centre-half their priority target this summer, considering how impressive right-sided Ginter has been for Gladbach this season, plus the fact that Davinson Sanchez doesn’t seem Having much of a future in north London under the 52-year-old manager, it’s easy to see why Spurs would be interested in a move for the 28-year-old.
Indeed, in his 25 Bundesliga appearances this campaign, the £21.6m-valued defender has been imperious at the heart of Adi Hutter’s backline, helping his side keep four clean sheets, plus to average 1.3 interceptions, 1.4 tackles. , three clearances and winning 5.6 duels -at an accuracy rate of 67%- per game.

These returns have seen the £50k-a-week player Joachim Low dubbed “underrated” average an extremely impressive 6.98 SofaScore match rating, ranking him Gladbach’s best defender and fourth-best player overall in the German top flight this season. season.
The 46-time World Cup winner has also drawn praise from legendary German centre-back Lothar Matthaus, who went so far as to compare Ginter to Paris Saint-German defender and former Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos.
Matthaus said: “Ginter has become a leader at the back, similar to Ramos at Real. He not only gives instructions to his teammates, but he also leads them. That’s what Ginter is doing really well at the moment. He reminds me of Ramos.
Who would you prefer at Spurs next season?
As such, considering the fact that the £42million Sanchez has not featured in seven of Tottenham’s last eight Premier League games, as well as the £67k-a-week centre-back whom Paul Robinson called it “inexcusable” for being linked to a move. Away from north London in the January transfer window, it would appear the Colombian international could be leaving the club this summer.
And, if Sanchez does leave, signing Ginter for free to replace the 25-year-old would certainly be a fantastic deal to get Paratici over the line, as the German would be a vast improvement over the former Ajax star.
