Djed Spence is on his way to Tottenham’s Hotspur Way training base this morning to undergo a medical, according to sky sports‘ live transfer center (15/7 – 09:05).

A deal has reportedly been reached which will see the north Londoners pay an initial transfer fee of £12.5m which could rise to around £20m if the add-ons are met (Lyall Thomas).

Sky Sports News Journalist Mark McAdam claimed yesterday that Spence is desperate to join Antonio Conte at Tottenham.

If a deal is finalized, Spence will be the second addition to the winger positions with Ivan Perisic having already joined Inter Milan on a free transfer (BBC).

Wingers have played a major role in Conte’s system, whether at Italy or at Chelsea, which makes these signings truly sensible.

Spurs have already made five additions to their squad with Yves Bissouma, Richarlison, Clement Lenglet and Fraser Forster forming the rest of the new arrivals.

With these new transfers, Tottenham will hope that Conte will have the right tools to achieve the success he has longed for for quite a long time.

Spence’s time on loan at Nottingham Forest gives us a clear indication of the impact he can have if he joins us this summer. His energetic runs up and down the right side, coupled with his crossing ability and dribbling skills, were some of his trademarks during this period.

While a jump to the Premier League is certainly something we need to consider, the England Under-21 international has shown how he can rise to the challenge as well. After all, he was one of Forest’s best performers in the previous campaign during their impressive FA Cup run.

This run saw the 21-year-old win against Arsenal, Leicester City and even Liverpool which can be seen as an assurance of his quality. If that’s the case then there’s no reason to see why Spence wouldn’t be able to replicate that under Conte, especially when the boss is known for getting the most out of his players as he has. during his short tenure so far.
