Report: Spurs interested in young defender who impressed for Poland

Roma Giallorossa report that Tottenham Hotspur have an eye on young Polish centre-back Jakub Kiwior ahead of the January transfer window.

Kiwior was a relatively unknown quantity when he left the Polish club Zilina to join Spezia in the summer of 2021.

The youngster was a bit-part player in his first season in Italian football but has been ever-present in the Spezia backline this season, having started every single Serie A game in the first part of the campaign (Transfermarkt).

The centre-back took his impressive club form to the international scene this week, putting in a commanding display in Poland’s 0-0 draw against Mexico in their World Cup opener on Tuesday.

Roma Giallorossa have now revealed that several clubs have their eye on Kiwior ahead of the January transfer window.

The report states that Jose Mourinho is keen on adding defensive reinforcements to his squad and that the 22-year-old is one of the names on the Giallorossi’s wishlist.

It is asserted that a deal for Kiwior will be ‘difficult’ for Roma to pull off as Spurs, Atletico Madrid and AC Milan are also eyeing a move for the defender.

Spurs Web Opinion

Paratici and his network of scouts tend to monitor the best emerging talents in the Serie A closely. So, it is not surprising that Spurs are keeping an eye on Kiwior.  However, Antonio Conte will likely prefer a more experienced and proven addition to the backline than the Poland international.
