Tottenham Hotspur want Daichi Kamada having been impressed with the Eintracht Frankfurt star during their run to the Europa League final.
Tottenham now look set for Champions League qualification having leapfrogged Arsenal in the Premier League.
This time last week, Tottenham were four points behind Arsenal; now they’re two points ahead.
Only needing a point away at Norwich City on Sunday afternoon, Tottenham have one foot in the Champions League.
That may allow Fabio Paratici and Antonio Conte to splash the cash this summer and Kamara is believed to be on Tottenham’s wish list.
Tottenham Hotspur want Daichi Kamada
Sport Bild now claim that Kamada is one player Tottenham are looking towards for this summer’s transfer window.
It’s also added that Sevilla are interested in Kamada and that he has been ‘toying’ with a transfer for some time.
Kamada is out of contract in 2023 and Frankfurt may choose to sell this summer having failed to land a new agreement.
Kamada, 25, has impressed this season with nine goals and four assists in 45 outings for Frankfurt.
The Japanese playmaker will likely start in the Europa League final against Rangers tonight.
Tottenham may well be watching ahead of launching a summer move for Kamada.
Tottenham were actually linked with Kamada last summer but didn’t make a move.
Kamada mostly plays as a number 10 and could be the creative midfielder Antonio Conte is seeking – even if he mostly plays a 3-4-3.
We would imagine that Kamada would be an impact substitute for Tottenham rather than a starter, just because his natural position isn’t featured in Conte’s preferred team.
Kamada actually scored the winner against West Ham in the Europa League semi-final first leg last month, helping dump the Hammers out of the competition.
Kamada was praised as ‘exceptional’ by BT Sport’s Lucy Ward during commentary of that game.
Tottenham may well have seen Kamada’s impact in that game and may now fancy signing him this summer.
