Tottenham Hotspur have been rebuffed in their attempts to sign Wilfried Singo, with Torino knocking back their €25 million bid.

According to Tuttosport, Tottenham Hotspur have been knocked in their quest to sign Wilfried Singo. The Premier League giants had tabled a €25 million offer for the talented wing-back, but Torino have rejected their advances and are holding out for an improved bid.

Singo is a native of Ivory Coast, and Torino believe their player should be valued way more due to his consistent performances in the past couple of years. A right-back by trade, Singo has indeed enjoyed a rapid rise to prominence since making his professional breakthrough at the Serie A club during the 2020/21 campaign.

The full-back has since racked up 73 competitive appearances for the Bulls. He has made a solid impression with his work rate and athleticism out wide, while his tally of five goals and seven assists is an indicator of the offensive prowess and productivity he can offer in the final third.

Tottenham Hotspur appear to have taken a close look at his performances in the Serie A. They are targeting him this summer as a potential replacement for Emerson Royal, who has been deemed surplus to the requirements and could be asked to leave the club by Antonio Conte at the end of the season.

Emerson’s potential exit could cause a vacuum in the Spurs setup, leaving Matt Doherty as the only viable option at left-back. That is where Wilfried Singo comes into the fray. The young Ivorian could prove to be an ideal wide defensive prospect for Tottenham due to his athleticism and attacking support wide support.

The 21-year-old is capable of operating not only in a back four but also in a back three. It should make him a tailor-made fit for Conte’s tactical philosophy at Tottenham, as the Italian often likes to deploy a 3-4-3 or a 3-5-2 with two wing-backs providing the width going forward and linking up attackers in the final third.

Singo can carry out this role perfectly in this setup. And standing at 1.90m, the youngster has the physical presence to become a handful in aerial duels, thus making him a valuable addition to the Tottenham setup.

However, it appears the Lilywhites might need to dig deep in their pockets if they are to sign the Torino full-back. Tottenham may also need to be wary of competition from other Premier League rivals including West Ham and Everton, in what could be an interesting transfer battle.
