Throughout this summer it’s become apparent that Mauricio Pochettino is keen on rebuilding part of his Tottenham team.
He’s already splashed the cash on Tanguy Ndombele and wants to get a move for Giovani Lo Celso over the line as well.
There have also been links to Dani Ceballos and Dani Olmo, while Atletico Madrid’s Angel Correa can now be added to the list as well.
AS cite their interest today amid the developing story surrounding Kieran Trippier moving to the Wanda Metropolitano.
The newspaper explains that negotiations between the two clubs are at an advanced stage for the right-back but that Correa could end up being a part of the deal.
They say Tottenham like the Argentine midfielder and that he currently has no future with Atleti. Thus, ‘it remains to be seen’ if he becomes part of Trippier’s move to La Liga.
There’s no mention of what sort of valuation Atletico have put on the 24-year-old, or whether he’d want to join Spurs, just that there is interest there.
It would make a lot of sense too. Atletico could get rid of a player they don’t want while securing Trippier for a lower price and Spurs get a talent waiting to blossom.
Of course, deals involving cash plus players are tricky to get over the line so there’s likely more twists and turns in this potential one before all parties are happy.
