According to the information provided by SportWitness, Tottenham could make a proposal in order to obtain the signature of Walid Cheddira. Under contract with Bari, the native of Loreto (Italy) made an impressive start to the season, under the tunic of the Italian club. The 24-year-old has scored 8 goals and provided 5 assists in 10 Serie B appearances. And he has also scored 5 goals in 3 Coppa Italia appearances. The operation linked to his arrival could be launched next June. Team Talk speaks of a transfer of 15 million euros, much less than the amount of the possible departure of Harry Kane to Bayern Munich (we are talking about 100 million euros).
Napoli ready to thwart Spurs’ plans?
Be careful, because the case is not won for Tottenham in the Walid Cheddira file. The Bari player would also be tracked by several Serie A clubs including Naples, which enjoys a significant advantage over its competitors: the president of Bari, Luigi de Laurentiis, is none other than the son of the SSCN boss, Aurelio de Laurentiis. The Vesuvius club should therefore begin negotiations with a significant advantage. Walid Cheddira would not be the only name targeted by Spurs, in case Harry Kane leaves: the situations of Ivan Toney (Brentford) and Rafael Leao (AC Milan) would also be monitored.
Walid Cheddira had a rather complicated start to his career, failing to get playing time at Parma. The Gialloblu club nevertheless lent him 4 times, before transferring him definitively to Bari. The striker, who has 2 selections with Morocco, finally seems to take off and could soon evolve into an elite, while he has only played in Serie B.
