Robinson 'would love' Tottenham to sign Coady and two others after Sky reveal agreement
Paul Robinson “would love” to see Tottenham sign Wolves duo Conor Coady and Adama Traore this summer.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former White Hart Lane number one claimed director of football Fabio Paratici needs to negotiate deals for three centre-backs if Davinson Sanchez and Toby Alderweireld leave.
According to Sky Sports Italy’s Gianluca Di Marzio (14th July), Sevilla have accepted Tottenham’s bid of £25.5million plus Davinson Sanchez for Jules Kounde.
However, Spanish outlet Marca have since reported that the France international does not want to move to north London.
As revealed by the The Athletic (July 2nd), Toby Alderweireld has told Spurs officials that he wants to leave the club in this window.
When asked by Football Insider‘s Dylan Childs for his assessment of the centre-half situation, Robinson said:

“It’s a position that they desperately need to strengthen in. What they have got just isn’t good enough.
“If two come in and two go out, then I think they need at least one more. We don’t know what Nuno is going to do but you’d suspect that he is going to play three at the back.
“I know there is talk of Conor Coady and he is someone who I would love to see at the club.
“He is a leader both on and off the field. If Nuno is going to play a three then I think he would be the ideal signing. He is a really strong character and there is not enough leaders in that Spurs dressing room.
“Coady and Adama Traore are the two players from Wolves that I would like Spurs to sign.”
Football Insider revealed on July 1st that Coady is a target for Tottenham, with the club prepared to go head-to-head with Everton for his signature.
Spurs are close to sealing the signing of one centre-back after Bologna’s Takehiro Tomiyasu agreed personal terms with the club.
