Chelsea and Tottenham Eye Highly Rated Italian Left Back
In the latest transfer buzz, both Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur have set their sights on the rising star of Italian football, Patrick Dorgu from Lecce, according to Tipsbladet.
At just 19 years old, Dorgu has garnered significant attention for his performances, establishing himself as a key player for Lecce. The English clubs see him as a promising long-term investment, recognizing his potential to bolster their defensive ranks.
For Chelsea, the pursuit of a quality young left-back is not surprising. With rumors surrounding Ian Maatsen’s potential departure and Marc Cucurella falling short of expectations, the club finds itself relying heavily on Ben Chilwell in that position. Dorgu emerges as a viable solution, offering both depth and future prospects.
Tottenham, too, has their reasons for eyeing the Lecce defender. With Ben Davies approaching the twilight of his career and Ryan Sessegnon yet to meet expectations since his arrival, the left-back position is a priority for reinforcement. Destiny Udogie has been a consistent performer, but competition from a talent like Dorgu could elevate the overall squad performance.
The potential partnership with Mauricio Pochettino adds an intriguing dimension to Dorgu’s future development. Pochettino’s track record for nurturing young talents could further elevate the 19-year-old’s game, making him a formidable force in the Premier League.
As the January transfer window approaches, the question looms: which of the two English giants will present a concrete proposal for Dorgu? While Lecce may be reluctant to part ways with a key player, the allure of a lucrative offer might sway their decision.
