Reported Tottenham target Godfred Donsah set for Napoli talks

Could a young player linked with Tottenham Hotspur instead be on his way to Naples?

Earlier this week a report from claimed Tottenham Hotspur remain interested in signing Cagliari midfielder Godfred Donsah.

Well, for those Tottenham fans eager to see the 19-year-old defensive midfielder arrive at White Hart Lane they may be in for disappointment, with Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio reporting that Donsah could instead be on his way to Napoli.

The latest report claims Napoli representatives are to meet with Donsah’s agents this afternoon to discuss a possible deal; that following an alleged bid of €6million (plus €3million in add-ons) from Italian rivals Bologna.

Donsah certainly fits the mould for a Tottenham signing – he is young enough to have considerable sell-on value and talented enough to represent a wonderful piece of business.

He could also improve a Tottenham squad in desperate need of midfield reinforcements, although in truth a more experienced head is required by Mauricio Pochettino’s side right now.

Donsah has played 23 matches for Cagliari to date, scoring two goals and providing one assist in the process.

He is definitely one to watch, but if the talks with Napoli prove fruitful he may be one young talent Tottenham miss out on.
