Genoa eye permanent deal for Djed Spence

Published: Updated: 04:16, 13 Apr 2024
The Spurs right-back has impressed the Serie A club officials with his ability

In recent football news, Genoa has expressed interest in signing 23-year-old right-back Djed Spence on a permanent basis. According to reports, the Italian club has already initiated contact with Tottenham Hotspur to negotiate a deal.

Since joining Genoa on loan in January, Spence has made eight appearances in Serie A matches. However, he has only managed to complete full 90-minute games on three occasions so far. Despite this limited playtime, his performance seems to have impressed the Italian side enough for them to consider making his move permanent.

Spence's previous loan spell at Leeds United did not go as planned during the first half of the season. Nevertheless, he is hopeful of getting his career back on track while playing at Luigi Ferraris stadium.

Tottenham also reportedly ready to offload Djed Spence

Reports reveals that a €10m (£8.5m) option-to-buy clause was included in the loan agreement between Spurs and Genoa. The North London club is reportedly eager for Genoa to activate this clause during the summer transfer window.

The reason behind this eagerness lies in Ange Postecoglou’s plans for Tottenham Hotspur's future squad composition. The former Middlesbrough player does not feature prominently in these plans and hence Spurs are ready to cut their losses with him.

Regular contact between clubs over deal

Interestingly enough, it appears that negotiations over a potential deal are already underway between both clubs. Reports suggest that regular contact is being maintained regarding signing Spence permanently by Genoa from Tottenham Hotspur.

This development could be beneficial for all parties involved - providing Spurs with an opportunity to offload a player who doesn't fit into their future strategy and giving Spence another chance at proving himself in Serie A. For Genoa, it could mean securing a player they value and have been pleased with during his loan spell.

As the summer transfer window approaches, football fans and sports betting enthusiasts will be keenly watching how this potential deal unfolds. Will Genoa activate the option-to-buy clause for Djed Spence? Only time will tell. Regardless of the outcome, this situation serves as an intriguing example of how loan deals can evolve into permanent transfers in professional football.
