Will Geoffrey Kondogbia Join Tottenham In The Summer Transfer Widow?

English Premier League side Tottenham Hotspurs are reported to be ready to place a bid of €40million for Geoffrey Kondogbia.

If there is one truth to cling amidst restless speculation over Geoffrey Kondogbia’s future is this: the midfielder won’t be at Valencia next season.

Beyond that, however, mapping out the future of one of Europe’s hottest properties becomes slightly trickier.

According to Standard, English Premier League side Tottenham Hotspurs are reported to be ready to place a bid of €40million as head coach Jose Mourinho looks to strengthen his struggling squad.

Valencia are said to be prepared to sell Kondogbia as they are most likely not going to qualify for next season’s Champions League.

The Mestalla-based outfit are currently in seventh with La Liga suspended amid the shutdown due to coronavirus, and are said to be ready to listen to the offer for the midfielder.

Another Premier League outfit, Everton, are reported to have enquired about the possibility of bringing the 27-year-old winger to Goodison Park, but his handlers are much in the Toffees move.

Kondogbia’s contract at Valencia will end in 2022 thus they face a race against time to sell him on for a profit, having got him at €25m in 2018.

The midfielder has netted five goals in 61 Lal Liga games for the Oranges, can play anywhere across the frontline, is young enough to improve, and plays a high-energy brand of football that will be familiar to anyone who has ever watched him.

Born in Nemours, France in 1993, he was cleared to play for the Central African Republic in 2018 by FIFA despite having been capped by France five times.

Kondogbia began his professional career at Lens, before switching to Spanish club Sevilla in July 2012, stints at Monaco and Inter Milan followed ahead of a move to Valencia in August 2017.

Kondogbia received an official call for the Central African Republic on 31 August 2018 and made his debut on 12 October, starting and acting a captain in a 4-0 away loss to Ivory Coast in a 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.
