Tottenham keeping tabs on Youcef Atal

Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur are keeping tabs on OGC Nice defender Youcef Atal, DZ Football understands.

Atal spent the summer winning the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations with Algeria, although he broke his collarbone in the quarter-finals against Ivory Coast.

Serge Aurier also got injured at the competition in Egypt which saw him miss the match against Algeria.

Kyle Walker-Peters is the only other player that Tottenham can comfortably play in this position. Tottenham have been impressed with his performances at Egypt 2019, where Atal provided a couple of assists.

Spurs sold Kieran Trippier to Atletico Madrid in the current summer transfer window and are in need of cover in the right-back position. OGC Nice have already sold Allan Saint-Maximin to the Premier League in this window as the Frenchman signed for Newcastle.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side have not had an Algerian footballer since the days of Nabil Bentaleb in central midfield. Bentaleb was sold to Schalke after the arrival of midfielder Dele Alli.

There are just a few days left for English clubs to buy players. Meanwhile, Said Benrahma is in advanced talks to sign for Aston Villa. Follow all the Algerian football transfers in English this summer with DZ Football.
