24-year-old eager to join Tottenham, would be the fourth fastest player at the club

Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with a move for the Bayer Leverkusen defender Edmond Tapsoba.

The 24-year-old is thought to be keen on a move to Tottenham Hotspur this summer and a report from Daily Mail claims that Tottenham have admired him for some time now.

It will be interesting to see if Spurs can secure his services in the coming weeks.

The North London giants need to sign a quality central defender and the 24-year-old Burkina Faso international could prove to be a solid, long-term investment.

Tapsoba is a quality defender with an impressive reading of the game. His recovery pace in particular could prove to be an exceptional asset for Tottenham.

Spurs will be hoping to pair him with Cristian Romero next season, and he could form a quality partnership with the Argentine international.

The newly appointed Tottenham manager prefers high-intensity attacking football and Tapsoba’s front-foot defending and pace could come in handy.

The 24-year-old is still at a stage of his career where he is likely to improve with experience and coaching. He could develop into one of the best defenders in the Premier League.

The Bundesliga defender clocked a top speed of around 33.68 km/h last season, which makes him the fourth-fastest player at Tottenham if he joins the club.

Only the likes of Son Heung-min, Harry Kane, and Ivan Perisic have clocked a higher top speed for Tottenham.

Given the fact that the player is keen on a move to Tottenham, it will probably strengthen the London club’s negotiating position. It remains to be seen whether they submit an official proposal to Leverkusen in the coming weeks.
