Tottenham ready to make Bologna star Antonio Conte’s first signing

A recent report has credited Tottenham with an interest in Bologna’s Mattias Svanberg.



Who is Mattias Svanberg?

Mattias Svanberg would sign for current club Bologna in July of 2018. The 22-year-old departed his home country of Sweden where he had been impressing with one of their top clubs, Malmo FF.

Svanberg would feature 47 times for Malmo’s senior side, scoring six and assisting 11 in the process.

Svanberg has since firmly cemented himself as a key figure in Bologna’s starting line-up.

Despite his age, Svanberg has already featured on 104 occasions for the Italian outfit. In said games, the central midfielder has scored nine goals and provided seven assists across all competitions.

Svanberg would also be handed his Sweden senior debut in 2019 and has since notched a further 14 appearances for them.

Svanberg generally operates in a central midfield role, but he can also be used as a defensive mid or, on occasion, slightly further forward.

Tottenham linked with Svanberg

Now, as mentioned above, Premier League outfit Tottenham have been linked with a move for Svanberg.

Inews report that Tottenham have emerged as frontrunners for the midfielder and that Spurs are ready to make the Swedish star Antonio Conte’s first signing as their boss.

The Lilywhites, however, could face competition for Svanberg from Manchester City, who are believed to have sent scouts to watch him during Bologna’s recent meeting with Roma.

No potential fee is mentioned in the report, but you would assume it would not be a mammoth sum demanded for Svanberg.

This is because he is only under contract in Italy until 2023 and, as per the report from inews, recently turned down a contract extension at Bologna.
