Report: Tottenham join race for 20-year-old Serie A starlet

According to reports in Italy, Tottenham Hotspur are among ‘multiple’ Premier League clubs who are tracking Juventus youngster, Matias Soulé who is currently impressing on loan at Frosinone Calcio.

As the January transfer window approaches, the rumour mill is in overdrive linking Tottenham to a whole host of talent across Europe and beyond.

Given the fact that Ange Postecoglou will likely want to continue to build the squad he needs to succeed, and the injury crisis that has exposed Spurs‘ lack of squad depth, it’s no wonder the North London side are expected to be busy in the winter window.

The positive relationship Tottenham share with Juventus has already seen the club linked with a swoop for youngster Samuel Iling-Junior (TuttoMercatoWeb) having previously signed Rodrigo Bentancur and Dejan Kulusevski from the Old Lady while Fabio Paratici was with the North Londoners. But now, it seems Spurs may be looking to strip the Italians of another top young talent.

Spurs interested in Soule

Matias Soule is a 20-year-old Argentinian star who can play as an attacking midfielder, a winger, or a forward. He is currently on loan from Juventus at Frosinone Calcio, and has registered six goals and one assist in 13 appearances for the Serie A side this season (Transfermarkt).

That kind of form has attracted attention elsewhere and, according to CalcioMercato, Spurs are now said to be one of many suitors looking at signing Soule.

Apparently, Tottenham have been monitoring Soule since last summer, but that interest has ramped up since the youngster started firing for Frosinone.

There are encouraging signs that a deal can be done, too, as Gazzetta dello Sport (via Sport Witness) reveal Juventus director Cristiano Giuntoli has been in London of late, looking to secure a deal worth between €20-25m (£17.1-21.4m).

Spurs Web Opinion

I really like the look of Matias Soule, and his versatility certainly makes him an attractive prospect for Spurs. He’s young, has bags of talent, produces in attacking areas, and could be snapped up for a decent price, too.
