‘He’s a goal threat’ – Tottenham tipped to make moves for highly-rated Premier League star as Nuno gets ready to plunder the transfer market

Posted by

There are less than four weeks left before the Nuno Espirito Santo era officially kicks off for Tottenham Hotspur, and the Portuguese has been tipped to bring in a highly-rated defender by the start of the 2021/22 Premier League campaign by a former Spurs star.

With the futures of a number of current players under review, Paul Stewart believes that Nuno should be looking at strengthening the back line as a matter of priority.

“Dunk would be ideal. I’ve said it from the start of last season because he has impressed me, and he’s a goal threat as well,” the former midfielder told This is Futbol.

“Not only is he a commanding centre-half, but he’s a goal threat, and they’re hard to come by.”

There’s no suggestion that Brighton and Hove Albion would be looking to move on their 29-year-old captain, however, a decent bid of around £20m from the north Londoners could see the Seagulls willing to do business.

His prowess at both ends of the pitch would make Dunk a solid addition, and shore up a defence that has been prone to the occasional howler.

Given how low down the managerial list Nuno was at the outset, he’ll quickly be judged on the strength of his signings as well as his style of play.

  1. A threat yes. But he often find himself playing a back five. I would want any defender at that age coming from this clib and Barnsley. That is all they do. 2 defensive mids and 4 defenders often time morphed into 3 centers and 1 mid. No Nuno, no do it.

    1. Correction… I would not want any defender from Albion and Barnsley at age 29 wit the system they play
