Tottenham Hotspur have stepped up their pursuit of Le Havre’s Arouna Sangante as they attempt to secure his signature in the upcoming transfer window, as reported by Football Insider.
The 21-year-old defender has captured the attention of several Premier League clubs. His journey began in France, progressing through youth ranks at Cosmos Saint-Denis and Red Star before joining Le Havre.
Emerging as a key player, the Senegalese defender played a pivotal role in their promotion to Ligue 1 last season, contributing with three goals and two assists. Remarkably, he currently holds the title of the youngest captain in Ligue 1.
Tottenham’s defensive struggles, compounded by injuries and suspensions, make Sangante an attractive prospect. With Cristian Romero sidelined for up to five weeks and other defensive concerns, Sangante’s performances have evidently caught the eye of Tottenham scouts.
Despite Sangante’s recent contract extension until 2026, Le Havre appears open to a potential transfer in the upcoming window, possibly with an option for a loan back until the season concludes. This arrangement, however, may not align with Tottenham’s urgency for an immediate defensive reinforcement.
As the January transfer window approaches, Tottenham’s interest in Sangante intensifies, marking him as a prime target to address their defensive woes.
