Some Spurs fans on social media are divided over whether a move for Valencia midfielder Geoffrey Kondogbia would be a good one for Tottenham.

Sky Sports reported on Saturday that Jose Mourinho is keen to bring Kondogbia to North London in the summer as he attempts to strengthen the squad ahead of next season.

The report alleges that Spurs chief scout, Steve Hitchin, is a long-term admirer of the hard-tackling midfielder and has been watching him since 2017 as a potential replacement for Moussa Dembele.

It is suggested that the club view the 27-year-old as the ideal player to slot in at defensive midfield.

Mourinho has, so far, employed the likes of Eric Dier, Harry Winks, Oliver Skipp, Gedson Fernandes and even Giovani Lo Celso as midfield pivots with mixed success this season.

While some Spurs fans believed that Kondogbia could be the final piece of Tottenham’s midfield jigsaw, others thought that it would be wiser to prioritise defensive additions.

Like many others, I too believed Kondogbia would have been an ideal signing a couple of seasons ago. His form has levelled off a bit in the last couple of seasons but if Jose believes that he is the right man for us, then the club should do everything in their power to get him.
