Inter want Sven Botman while Spurs are also eyeing the youngster. Botman is 21 years old who plays as a centre-back for the French top club Lille OSC. Botman joined Ajax at the age of nine. Furthermore, he spent the 19/20 season on loan with the fellow dutch side Heerenveen. The Dutchman played all the 26 Eredivisie games for them. He joined Lille from Ajax on a reported fee of £8m.
The 21-year old has made 25 appearances for the club till now, scoring twice and providing five assists. The Dutchman has been playing consistently well for Lille and is attracting various massive clubs. Liverpool and Tottenham are amongst the ones interested. The left-foot centre-back has impressed with his performances alongside Jose Fonte in the 2020-21 season. The duo has helped Lille in keeping eight clean sheets in the last 17 Ligue 1 appearances.
Inter want Sven Botman to enhance their defence
Inter are in a good position at the moment. In fact, the Italian giants are leading the Serie A. Conte has found balance with his squad and Eriksen and Conte have also come to right terms with each other. Ever since Eriksen scored the derby goal, he has not failed to impress Conte in all the other chances that he got. In fact, Inter legend Nicola Berti believes that Eriksen should regularly start for Inter. The Dane has started the past few games for the Nerazzurri.
There have been previous reports that suggest that Tottenham had already confirmed a deal with Botman’s agent. However, that is not actually true. Since Tottenham are struggling enormously with their defence, Sven Botman can play the role for them. Similarly, Inter can use a young player to enhance their defence. Botman is mature for his age and has proved to be one of the most promising centre-backs in Europe. Will we see the Dutchman in Inter jersey this summer?
