Tottenham “needs” Samuel Umtiti

According to Paul Robinson, Tottenham “needs” to attract Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti. If Jan Vertonghen completes leaving the club this summer. Vertonghen spent the last eight years of his career with the Spurs. Raising a total of 311 appearances in all competitions. The Belgian helped the Spurs gain a foothold in the top 4 regulars and finalists of the Champions League. At that time while forging a solid partnership with fellow countryman Toby Alderweireld at the back. However, the 33-year-old striker has not been a guaranteed starting point since Jose Mourinho came to head coach in November, and in his current form, he will become a free agent at the end of June. Vertonghen admitted during an interview last week that he wants to learn a different language while citing Spain and Italy as following possible directions.

Vertonghen always had in mind to leave

Robinson, who played between the passes for Tottenham from 2004 to 2008. He believes that the center-back “has all the time had it in his mind to quit” and said that in 2019-20 he repeatedly looked “disheartened”. The former Spurs goalkeeper would like to see his old club target Umtiti if Vertonghen moves to new pastures. Insisting that the Barca star will be a great sign “for his old club”. Umtiti is what they need.” Robinson told reporters.” Vertonghen was not itself. Whether it has been the agreement, but it seems he always had in mind to leave. “He sometimes looked upset; you could see him in his body language. He was not himself.

“Someone like Umtiti, who is only 26 years old, would be perfect if Vertonghen is leaving.” If he does leave, then this is the position they will have to look at. I suspect that they will strengthen with more than one, but Umtiti fits the bill. Tottenham Hotspur has been linked to Umtiti in recent months, but it has also been reported that Arsenal has a keen interest in the Frenchman in front of the summer transfer window. It is not yet studied when the transfer market will open with a still delayed season due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, FIFA suggested that the window could be expanded to give clubs more time to make any potential deals.
