Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing Sassuolo defender Mert Muldur.
According to Kronen Zeitung (via Spox), the Premier League club are keen on securing the 22-year-old’s services this summer.
The right-back is contracted to the Italian club until 2024, and it is unclear whether they will be willing to sanction a sale.
Serge Aurier and Matt Doherty have been disappointing for Tottenham this season, and the Londoners need to acquire an upgrade in that area of the pitch.
Muldur has the potential to develop into a quality player for Spurs, and his signing could prove to be a wise long term investment.
The player’s agent, Max Hagmayr, has confirmed that he is always involved in talks with the top clubs in Italy and England.
He says that Muldur is currently content with his situation and is improving defensively and tactically in Italy.
However, the chance to join a top Premier League club could be tempting, and Spurs will hope that they can lure him to England.
Muldur has three years left on his deal with Sassuolo, and they are under no pressure to sell him.
They could easily demand a premium for his services if Spurs follow up their interest.
