Faouzi Ghoulam, as things stand, has been linked with a move to every club in the Premier League’s top six.

Manchester City and Chelsea have had their fair share of mentions, and now Tottenham are starting to rack them up, thanks to a new one from Gazzetta dello Sport on Tuesday.

The Napoli left-back only has one year left on his deal, and while there have been recent rumblings he might prolong his time in the south of Italy, an exit still remains likely.


Trying to find the best outcome, it appears the player and his entourage have made contact with none other than Jorge Mendes in order to see what the super agent can do for them, whether that is get a better a deal in Naples, or move to Wembley/somewhere else.

After all, he is a regular starter in Serie A, and would only move to a club where that would also be the case, which might not be the case with Danny Rose and Ben Davies playing there under Mauricio Pochettino.

However, with the recent news the former won’t be back until next season, bringing someone in for cover could be an option in case there are further complications.

Jorge Mendes was reported to have been contacted back in March in order to help the player sign for Real Madrid, which makes a lot more sense than pushing for a Tottenham move, as Fabio Coentrao is likely to leave and Marcelo needs a rest from time to time.

The upcoming purchase of Theo Hernandez could close that route.

There is also the possibility that Ghoulam could run down his contract next season, opening up more avenues with clubs always looking for a good deal.

The Danny Rose news does make this interest more believable, but what happens when he returns?

It would be a risky move for Ghoulam, who could quickly find himself on Wembley’s bench, and would likely end up being a more expensive than anticipated backup purchase for Spurs.
