Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with Juan Fernando Quintero, and fans of the North London outfit will be encouraged by the verdict on the FC Porto attacking midfielder by Lukasz Fabianski, who recently left Swansea City for West Ham United in the summer transfer window, as quoted by The Guardian.
Fabianski saw his Poland side hammered 3-0 by Colombia at the World Cup in Russia, and the 33-year-old former Arsenal goalkeeper has spoken highly of Quintero.
The 25-year-old attacking midfielder will feature for the South American side in their last-16 tie against England next week.
Fabianski, who moved to West Ham from Swansea earlier this month for a transfer fee reported by BBC Sport to be worth £7 million, seems to rate Quintero highly.
“Colombia have so much quality in the midfield, in [Juan] Cuadrado and James Rodriguez,” Fabianski told The Guardian. “But especially Rodriguez and [Juan] Quintero.
“He’s a really good player [Quintero] with real confidence about himself. This midfield, with Rodriguez as well, has quality.”
Good signing for Tottenham Hotspur?
Quintero has played well for Colombia so far at the World Cup, and one suspects that the attacking midfielder will be determined to guide his team to win against England next week.
While the attacking midfielder would be a good signing for Tottenham, the North London outfit should be wary of paying too much based on the 25-year-old’s performances in a few games at the World Cup.
