Gabriel Agbonlahor Urges Tottenham To Make Summer Move For Manchester City star
Gabriel Agbonlahor: Tottenham should go for Manchester City star Aymeric Laporte
Speaking to Football Insider, former Premier League striker Gabriel Agbonlahor has urged Tottenham Hotspur to go for Aymeric Laporte in the summer.
Aymeric Laporte has emerged as a potential transfer target for Tottenham Hotspur as the Manchester City defender looks set to leave the club in search of regular playing time. The 28-year-old Frenchman has found himself on the fringes of Pep Guardiola’s squad this season, and a move away seems inevitable.
Gabriel Agbonlahor has now thrown his support behind Laporte’s potential move to Tottenham, urging the club to make a decisive move for the talented centre-back. Agbonlahor highlighted Laporte’s strengths, praising his strength, technical ability, and goal-scoring prowess from set pieces.
“If I was Spurs, I’d go straight in for him. He’s a very good center-half who would probably start for most teams in the top six. He walks into a lot of those sides. Laporte would be a no-brainer. Get him in alongside Jordan Pickford, and that would be a good start to their transfer window.”
Tottenham’s defensive frailties have been apparent throughout the season, and they must address these concerns in the upcoming transfer window. Aymeric Laporte could prove to be a quality addition to the squad, bringing stability and experience to their backline.
Having been a key figure in Manchester City’s success over the years, Laporte is no stranger to the demands of the Premier League. He has won multiple trophies during his time in England, showcasing his ability to perform at the highest level.
With his prime years still ahead of him, a move to Tottenham could reignite his career and provide him with the regular playing time he craves. Partnering Laporte with the promising Cristian Romero could form a formidable central defensive partnership for Tottenham.
The Frenchman’s composure and reading of the game, combined with Romero’s physicality and aggression, would offer a well-rounded defensive duo capable of thwarting opposition attacks.
Tottenham’s need for defensive reinforcements is evident, and Laporte’s arrival could be a significant step towards rectifying their defensive woes. The acquisition of Pedro Porro to address the right-back position will also help going forward.
The prospect of playing for another top club in England might be enticing for Laporte, who would relish the chance to make an impact elsewhere. A return to Spain could also be on the cards. Let’s see how this pans out.
