Speaking on The Last Word on Spurs YouTube channel, The Athletic’s Jack Pitt-Brooke has been discussing Tottenham and their interest in Marc Guehi.

The centre-back has been linked with Tottenham for a little while now, and according to Pitt-Brooke, the London club are indeed massive fans of the Crystal Palace defender.

In fact, interestingly, the reporter states that Fabio Paratici himself is a big fan of Guehi, but unfortunately, a deal isn’t imminent.

Indeed, according to Pitt-Brooke, there is next to no chance of this deal happening this summer as Crystal Palace are under no pressure to sell the defender.

What’s been said?

Pitt-Brooke spoke about Guehi and Spurs.

“So Guehi they really like. Paratici definitely really likes Marc Guehi. There is a guy that is young, English, homegrown, plays for England and he can play along the backline. He’s a fantastic player and there’s a lot of upside to him,” Pitt-Brooke said.

“He has four years left on his Crystal Palace contract and Palace don’t get pushed around if someone wants their players, Palace have no incentve to sell him for anything short of crazy money, so the prospect of Spurs doing a deal with Palace for Guehi is basically zero. Maybe in two years’ time they can come back and negotiate, but I don’t think it’s possible, but they do definitely like him.”

Palace won’t sell

If Guehi played for any other mid-table Premier League team, Tottenham may fancy their chances of getting him, but Palace are known to be tough customers.

The Eagles very rarely sell any of their top players, and they’re never pressured into selling a player they want to let go.

Indeed, just look at Wilfried Zaha, he’s reportedly been angling for a move away from Palace for years at this point, but the London club have never buckled, keeping him at the club for years, despite an almost unlimited amount of speculation.

Guehi will not be joining Tottenham this summer, that is almost a certainty.
