‘Bid on the table’ – Tottenham ‘close’ to landing second summer signing,

According to reports (via Daily Star), Tottenham is edging closer to completing the signing of Edmond Tapsoba from Bayer Leverkusen, relays the BH. The 24-year-old Burkina Faso international is expected to become Tottenham’s second summer acquisition, following the arrival of Guglielmo Vicario from Empoli. A bid of £25 million is said to be on the table, and negotiations are at an advanced stage.

For the 24-year-old defender, a move to the Premier League would mark an exciting new chapter in his career, and the prospect of playing in England is likely to be enticing. Tottenham’s need for defensive reinforcements has been well-documented, and Tapsoba is seen as a quality long-term addition to the squad. With an impressive track record in the Bundesliga, he possesses the qualities to succeed in the Premier League as well.

In addition to his defensive attributes, Tapsoba’s pace would bring much-needed speed to Tottenham’s backline. The team’s newly appointed manager favors a progressive style of play, and Tapsoba’s ability to recover quickly could prove valuable. Given his young age, there is still room for further development and improvement with experience and coaching, making him a potential key player for Tottenham in the years to come.

If the reported £25 million transfer fee materializes, it could prove to be a bargain if Tapsoba quickly adapts and performs well in the Premier League. Alongside quality defender Cristian Romero, who has been a standout for the club in recent seasons, Tapsoba is expected to form a strong partnership at the heart of Tottenham’s defense.
