Tottenham Hotspur set sights on Sevilla star for January transfer

Spurs are seeking to strengthen their defensive unit by signing Loic Bade after his breakout season at Sevilla

Tottenham Hotspur, the North London football club, is reportedly interested in signing 23-year-old Sevilla defender Loic Bade. The Premier League outfit is said to be planning a January move for the young talent and could submit an offer soon.

Bade has demonstrated his prowess in La Liga with Sevilla and could prove to be a valuable addition to Tottenham's squad. The team is currently in dire need of central defenders, making Bade a strategic long-term investment. At just 23 years old, he shows great potential for improvement with further coaching and experience. He could become a key player for the Londoners in the foreseeable future.

However, it remains uncertain whether Sevilla will agree to let go of their promising player this month. They acquired him for around €12 million and would likely aim to make a substantial profit if they decide to sell him this January.

Currently, Cristian Romano and Micky van de Ven are Tottenham's only reliable central defenders. With Eric Dier potentially leaving the club this month, there will be an urgent need for adequate replacements.

With Dier reportedly leaving, Tottenham can sign both Dragusin and Balde in the winter

In addition to Bade, Spurs have also shown interest in Genoa defender Radu Dragusin. However, rumours suggest that Napoli might outbid them for his signature. Given these circumstances, it seems plausible that Bade could serve as an alternative option should they fail to secure Dragusin.

The chance to play in England’s top-flight league may prove tempting enough for Bade; however much depends on whether both clubs can agree on a transfer fee first.

Tottenham must bolster their defence if they hope to qualify for next season's Champions League competition - something which has been highlighted by their recent defensive vulnerabilities leading them drop valuable points due injuries among key defenders.

To finish the season strongly, Spurs cannot afford to concede goals freely. Therefore, securing a quality central defender like Bade before the January transfer window closes could be crucial for their campaign.

Tottenham's interest in Loic Bade is clear, it remains to be seen whether they can successfully negotiate his transfer from Sevilla. The potential acquisition could significantly strengthen Spurs' defence and provide a long-term solution to their current defensive woes.
