Tottenham Hotspur should try to sign Chelsea star N’Golo Kante rather than Paris Saint-Germain’s Idrissa Gueye, talkSPORT reporter Alex Crook has said.
Over the past two weeks, several publications have suggested that Spurs have their sights set on Gueye, who has fallen down the pecking order at PSG this season.
Young Footballers to have claimed that Tottenham are paying close attention to the 32-year-old’s situation, with PSG ready to take advantage of the player.
All the files reported this week that Antonio Conte has identified Gueye as the man to add defensive solidity to his midfield, the former Everton man is reportedly valued at around €15m ($12.7m). pound sterling).
However, following this interest in Idrissa Gueye, the PSG man threw himself at the center of a controversy after he allegedly missed the French club’s last game because he refused to wear a rainbow jersey. designed to promote LGBTQI+ (BBC) rights.
Crook insisted the Senegal international was not of the quality Tottenham need this summer and urged the north Londoners to pursue Kante instead.
The World Cup-winning midfielder has just 12 months left to fulfill his contract at Stamford Bridge (TransferMarkt).
Crook told GiveMeSport of Tottenham’s rumored interest in Gueye: “He was fine at Everton, but not more than that. He’s not always guaranteed a place at Paris Saint-Germain so I think ‘they could probably do better, but it’s such a key area.
“I mean, if they think they can get N’Golo Kante out of Chelsea, they’ll probably try, but the history between these two clubs makes that impossible.”

Gueye was more than ‘good’ during his time at Everton. In fact, I would say he was one of the most consistent midfield pivots in the Premier League in his last year and a half at Goodison Park.
At 32, the Senegalese midfielder may not be the same player at this stage of his career. Crook may be right that maybe we can do better than the PSG man.
However, I don’t think there is a chance Spurs can land N’Golo Kante. I don’t think Chelsea would consider selling him to us and the Frenchman is unlikely to want to join us.
