Tottenham have been linked with a move for Inter Milan defender Diego Godin, according to Italian journalist Nicolo Schira. Spurs are considering a move for the center back but his wage demands have complicated matters.
Godin wants around €6m a year until 2022 and Spurs might not be able to pay him that much. Breaking their wage structure for Godin could prove to be a risky move.
The 135-cap Uruguayan international is a top-class defender. He has fallen down the pecking order at Inter Milan. Antonio Conte wants to bring in a left-sided center-back this summer.
The 34-year-old has made just 12 starts in Serie A this season. Godin has the quality and experience to make an immediate impact. And he could be a good replacement for Jan Vertonghen, who is expected to leave the club.
