Tottenham failed to advance to European competition. Tottenham won 4-1 against Leeds in the final match of the English Premier League (EPL), but Villa won 2-1 in the match between Aston Villa and Brighton & Hove Albion, which took place at the same time, and won the European Football Federation (UEFA) Europa Conference League ( UECL) was not even allowed to go.
A disastrous result. Tottenham cruised at the beginning of the season with manager Antonio Conte, but after the World Cup break, the ups and downs gradually worsened and the rankings gradually fell. Here, Conte left the team with bombshell remarks, and acting manager Christian Stellini failed to provide an answer, ending the season unfortunately.
Defensive insecurity was also a factor in the failure. Some center backs, such as Eric Dyer and Davinson Sanchez, failed to reach the level Tottenham wanted throughout the season, contributing to Tottenham’s disgrace of 6th most goals conceded (63 goals). In order not to repeat the setback next season, the central defense is desperately needed.
Tottenham started to move with the end of the season. The target is Leeds centre-back Koch. Koch is a resource that can see both central defense and defensive midfielder, and he is a defender who made one serving in Leeds, which had the most goals conceded (78) this season. He has strengths in aerial competition and interpersonal defense, and his feet are also good. However, his agility and ability to deal with pressure are poor.
The most attractive part of him is the price. Koch has only 12 months left on his contract with Leeds. In addition, since Leeds have been relegated to the English Championship (second division), it is possible to recruit at a cheaper price. According to ‘Football Insider’, Koch’s transfer fee is expected to be £15 million (approximately 24.6 billion won).
Meanwhile, Tottenham is aiming for other Leeds players besides Koch. Ian Mellier, who will replace Hugo Lloris, and Jack Harrison, who will replace Lucas Moura, are on Tottenham’s radar.
