Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly interested in signing Hellas Verona defender Marash Kumbulla.

Italian news outlet L’Arena claim that Spurs are yet to make an offer for the 20-year-old, who is also attracting interest from a number of clubs including Inter Milan, Lazio, Roma with Everton, Chelsea and Manchester United having had the Albanian on their radar.

Verona are expected to hold out for a fee in the region of €28mllion (£25.4million) if they are prepared to part company with Kumbulla.

The Serie A outfit are said not to be in a desperate position to generate income from transfers having already sold Sofyan Amrabat to Fiorentina and Amir Rrahmani to Napoli.

Tottenham are one central defender short compared to the end of last season after Jan Vertonghen departed North London after eight years following the expiration of his contract and later joined Benfica.

SpursWeb Opinion

While Kumbulla is considered to be a defender with a bright future, I question whether another central defender should be even on our radar at present.

We have far bigger concerns with the lack of another striker and a creative midfielder in our ranks.
