According to CalciomercatoTottenham Hotspur have held talks with Andreas Christensen over a possible move to north London at the end of the season.
The Danish defender is out of contract at Chelsea this summer, and although he has been linked with the likes of Bayern Munich, Spurs seem keen to offer him the option of staying in London.
Spurs need to strengthen their defense so this signing makes sense, while Antonio Conte also has an ongoing relationship with the centre-half after managing him at Chelsea.
In fact, Conte has previously said he trusts Christensen in defence, calling him a “wonderful” player.
What was said?
Conte has spoken about Christensen on several occasions, but perhaps his highest praise came after a game against Barcelona in 2018.
“Christensen is having a fantastic season and showing great maturity. His performance was wonderful,” Conte said.
“I trust Christensen. I think this player is the present and also the future of Chelsea. He can also become the captain of this team.
What Spurs need
Tottenham have so many problems in their defense at the moment, and the only thing they need is a defender the manager can trust.
Yes, Conte seems to be a huge Eric Dier fan, but as the Englishman has shown in recent seasons, he’s not always the most consistent performer.
Christensen may not be one step ahead of the Tottenham defenders at the moment, but he’s a player Conte has a lot of faith in, and often that’s all that matters.
