Tottenham Hotspur transfer chief Fabio Paratici has now made an ‘important offer’ as manager Antonio Conte personally insists on one summer signing, according to reports.

The Lowdown: Conte sets sights…

The Lilywhites head coach has been after a new right-wing-back since January with serious links having emerged to a makeshift option in Adama Traore.

Spurs, however, failed to land their man, who eventually ended up joining Barcelona – prompting the Premier League top-four chasers to regroup and draw up a list of other targets for the position.

One player who has ended up on their radar is Torino star Wilfried Singo amid his fine Serie A season and a development has now emerged courtesy of Tuttosport (via Sport Witness).

The Latest: Paratici tables ‘top bid’…

As per their sources, Paratici has tabled a ‘top bid’ to sign the Ivory Coast international – making an ‘important offer’ last week.

This comes as Conte personally ‘insists’ on his signing at Tottenham, but unfortunately for the Italian, Torino president Urbano Cairo has apparently rejected the club’s €25 million (£21m) proposal.

The Verdict: Come back again?

The 21-year-old has emerged a very shrewd target, and even though he is apparently ‘non-transferable’ from his club’s perspective as things stand, perhaps a more serious offer could tempt them into selling.

According to WhoScored, Singo ranks as one of Ivan Juric’s top-five domestic performers by average match rating and only two players have featured more by minutes – impressive stats for a fairly young and upcoming talent.

He’s an effective, attack-minded full-back also – racking up the joint-most assists for Torino in Italy (4) whilst completing the second-highest rate of take-ons per 90 out of their squad (WhoScored).

The African starlet seemingly has bags of potential and it’s little wonder Conte really wants him at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

If chairman Daniel Levy is serious about backing the manager, we believe Spurs should seriously twist Cairo’s arm with another marquee offer.
