Tottenham Hotspur are looking to improve their defensive unit with the arrival of Jarrad Branthwaite from Everton.
The 21-year-old is highly regarded in the Premier League and has a great future ahead of him. With the right training and guidance, he could become a top-class Premier League defender. Tottenham need to add more depth to their defense and it is no surprise that they have identified the talented young defender as a potential target.Convincing Everton to sell the player in January could be a difficult challenge for them. The Toffees are fighting relegation this season and do not want to weaken their squad at the height of the season.Meanwhile, a report from Football Transfers states that Everton value the player at £75 million and it will be interesting to see if Tottenham are willing to pay that much money for him.There is no doubt that the 21-year-old is an incredible talent, but the price tag is quite high and Branthwaite has done nothing so far to justify such a valuation. However, the transfer market is extremely inflated and Everton may not be willing to lower their demands. Tottenham currently have Cristian Romero as their only reliable central defender available and recruiting a good central defender should be their top priority. Summer signing Micky van de Ven has been excellent for the club but is currently unavailable due to injury. Branthwaite would be a long-term investment for Tottenham and they could help him become a top player.
