Tottenham eye £3m deal for Juventus defender target

Published Add your comment

Tottenham Hotspur have joined the race to sign highly-rated FC Zurich defender Loris Benito, who has also attracted admiring glances from Juventus.

The Daily Mirror reports how the Switzerland U21 international was recommended to the north London club by former player Ramon Vega, after turning in a series of impressive performances this season.

With doubts surrounding the long-term future of Tim Sherwood at White Hart Lane, it's presumed that Spurs' alleged interest stems from director of football Franco Baldini, who is already on the lookout for potential reinforcements this summer.

Benito plays primarily at left-back but is also capable of operating in midfield, so his versatility will prove valuable to whichever team manages to secure his signature when the transfer window reopens.

The 20-year-old is believed to be available for as little as £3million, and could turn out to be a replacement for Jan Vertonghen, who has been heavily linked with a move away from Tottenham as a clutch of Champions League clubs weigh up a bid for him at the end of the season.
