Report: Jose Mourinho is ‘confident’ of beating Tottenham to centre-back 

According to 90 min, AS Roma are now confident of winning the race for reported Tottenham target Evan Ndicka.

Evan Ndicka appears set to leave Eintracht Frankfurt on a free transfer when his contract runs out in June (Transfermarkt) and multiple publications have revealed over the last few months that Spurs are one of many clubs who are eyeing a summer move for the defender (Frankfurter Rundschau).

90 min have now claimed that the 23-year-old is of ‘particular interest’ to Tottenham this summer while the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool have also watched him this season.

It is explained that Barcelona also previously showed interest in snapping up the Frenchman but have now stepped away from the deal.

The outlet explains that it is Roma who have now moved to the front of the queue for Ndicka’s signature ahead of the aforementioned clubs.

It is explained that Jose Mourinho’s men are now ‘confident’ of wrapping up a deal for the centre-back in the ‘near future’.

Spurs Web Opinion

There is no doubt that several free agents who will be on the market this summer, including Ndicka, Kamada and Zaha, would improve our squad.

However, we are now seemingly losing ground to other clubs in the race for these players due to our lack of urgency in appointing a new sporting director and manager.
