With Sebastien Bassong’s move to Norwich now finalised, Spurs are looking a little thin at the back even with Michael Dawson in the squad. If Daws does leave then it may be right to assume that there is a plan to bring another senior central defender but the club may be looking at other options too.
Marco Perrotta doesn’t fit the bill as a seasoned centre half – he’s only 18 with a handful of appearances for Pescara behind him but the player’s agent claims that there is interest from Spurs.
It’s true, but not only them, there are other clubs interested in the player,” said Ulisse Savini when asked about Spurs.
“Right now he is looking forward to a season with Pescara in Serie A and he has a contract that ties him to the club until 2016.
“For the future we’ll see.”
If Michael Dawson were to depart, it would leave the club with Vertonghen, Gallas, Kaboul and Caulker in the centre. Maybe AVB feels that a younger back up such as Perrotta is all that’s needed?
