According to Ben Jacobs, as reported by Caught Offside, Tottenham Hotspur are said to have an interest in Max Kilman as they seek to strengthen their defence during the summer transfer window.
Tottenham are actively looking to sign a new centre-back, and they have been considering various options for reinforcements. Spurs are in search of a top-quality manager and a new sporting director. Once these appointments are finalised, the North Londoners will shift their attention to their recruitment strategy.
While there are several positions that require strengthening, the defence, in particular, is a priority. Tottenham has long been in pursuit of a high-caliber central defender, but their search has yet to yield significant results.
During Antonio Conte’s tenure, there was a strong desire to bring in Inter Milan’s Alessandro Bastoni, which might have been possible if Tottenham had secured a top-four finish. However, given their current situation, it may be challenging to attract top names, and as a result, Tottenham are exploring alternative options.
Recent reports suggest that Tottenham have been linked with Marc Guehi, but they face tough competition from other Premier League clubs. The pursuit of Guehi and other potential signings may depend on Tottenham’s Champions League qualification, as top-four clubs could be vying for the Crystal Palace star’s signature.
Kilman, who plays for Wolves, has had a mixed season but has made an impression on Julian Lopetegui. Although he hasn’t started as many games as he would have liked, he remains an important part of the team. Liverpool have also been mentioned as one of the clubs interested in Kilman.
Journalist Ben Jacobs believes that Spurs are still eager to pursue the signing of Kilman during the summer transfer window. He mentioned that several Premier League clubs hold admiration for the centre-back, and although Kilman’s season may not have been as consistent as in the previous year, he has not yet reached his full potential.
The 26-year-old defender is under contract until 2026, with the option for an additional year. Therefore, Wolves will not rush into accepting any initial offers that come their way.
