Tottenham are preparing for a summer swoop for Napoli defensive midfielder Amadou Diawara, according to Corriere dello Sport, and fans are delighted with the news.

The Italian outlet claims that Napoli are already in negotiations with Sampdoria over his replacement, Lucas Torreira, and that they need to sell Diawara to fund his purchase.

That’s where Tottenham come in and Corriere claim that Tottenham are “determined” to land their man.

One fan claim that he would be a “bargain” at the reported price of £22million and a perfect apprentice to Mousa Dembele.

Another fan said that he would be like “Wanyama 2.0” with one saying that he was a very similar player to their defensive midfielder.

One fan was already in heaven at the thought of a Wanyama/Diawara pivot next season.
