Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly keen on landing RB Leipzig defender Nordi Mukiele.
It is claimed that Spurs have already established contact with the player’s representatives in the hope of bringing him to North London.
However, it turns out that Tottenham could have landed Mukiele for just £14million two years ago.
Le10 Sport reported back in 2018 that Tottenham were working hard to secure the signing of Mukiele from Montpellier.
The young defender was instead snapped up by Leipzig for £14m (L’Equipe), while Tottenham chose to stick with both Serge Aurier and Kieran Trippier that summer.

I can see why the club would be interested in a move for Mikiele this summer as his versatility allow him to cover for both right-back and centre-back. It will save us some money and allow us to invest our transfer kitty on a defensive midfielder and a centre-forward.
If Spurs had acted with more conviction in 2018, perhaps the Frenchman could have already established himself as an important part of our backline.
