Marc Guehi has been at Crystal Palace since 2021 when he joined from Chelsea. The 22-year-old’s contract at Crystal Palace is set to expire at the end of the 2025/26 campaign.

He has featured in 30 matches for Crystal Palace this term in all competitions. Guehi has long been touted as one of England’s most promising young talents. As a member of England national football team, he won 3 caps.

His impressive performances this season have apparently caught the eye of some of Europe’s big clubs.

Adding a centre-back remains Tottenham’s top priority this summer and they will have drafted a shortlist of a number of possible targets they could approach in the coming monhts.

Someone with Marc Guehi’s skillset and potential will no doubt be an excellent signing for Tottenham Hotspur.

The former Chelsea man heavily relies on his ability to read the game. It is coupled with his sensible tackling and an excellent sense of positioning, allowing him to repel most of the danger in the defensive third. He will add a new dimension to Tottenham’s defense.

World Football Rumours

According to the report, “Tottenham Hotspur are £20million short in their pursuit of Crystal Palace defender Marc Guehi. Defensive reinforcements will be required at Tottenham in the summer, regardless of who their manager is. At centre-back, they are looking for someone who can be a more reliable partner for Cristian Romero. Tottenham will be keeping their options open, but Guehi is one of their main targets. The Evening Standard revealed in February that the former Chelsea product is on their radar.”

Crystal Palace are reluctant to let Guehi go, but a big enough bid could persuade them to sell.

The Spurs are showing interest in signing centre-back, but will have to dig deep to land him.

Good signing for Tottenham Hotspur?

Signing the 22-year-old in the summer transfer window would be a masterstroke from Fabio Paratici.

Stylistically, he would be a great fit at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

It will be interesting to see whether Tottenham will make their move during the summer transfer window.
