Tottenham Hotspur keen to bring in Bologna talent Mattias Svanberg in January – Things to know about him

It
is
understood
that
midfield
is
the
foremost
priority
of
Antonio
Conte
in
January
considering
there
will
be
two
or
three
departures
from
that
area.
Out
of
favour
Dele
Alli,
Giovani
Lo
Celso
and
Tanguy
Ndombele
all
could
leave
the
club
in
January
and
Conte
has
been
promised
the
funds
to
replace
them.

One
of
the
names
that
have
been
linked
with
them
recently
is
Bologna
midfielder
Mattias
Svanberg.
The
dynamic
midfielder
is
catching
the
eye
in
Serie
A
amid
some
impressive
displays
this
season.
His
performance
has
alerted
Tottenham
with
some
reports
suggesting
that
Spurs
are
ready
to
make
the
Swede
Antonio
Conte’s
first
signing.


So
here
are
a
couple
of
things
you
need
to
know
about
the
22-year-old:


His
career
so
far

The
central
midfielder
came
through
the
Malmo
FF
academy
and
broke
into
the
Swedish
side’s
regular
starting
XI
as
a
teenager.
After
his
impressive
performance
there
Bologna
approached
the
midfielder
and
signed
him
for
£4
million
in
2018.

Since
then
Svanberg
has
only
gone
from
strength
to
strength.
During
his
ongoing
three-and-a-half-year
spell
at
Italy
so
far,
he
has
notched
up
over
100
competitive
appearances.
He
has
three
goals
and
two
assists
from
19
Serie
A
starts
this
season.
He
has
been
a
huge
part
of
Sinisa
Mihajlovic’s
side
so
far
as
they
look
towards
a
top-half
finish
this
season.


Playing
Style

With
strong
attacking
and
defensive
attributes,
the
Swedish
is
an
all-around
midfielder.
Depending
on
the
formation,
the
22-year-old
has
played
as
either
a
defensive
midfielder
or
as
a
box-to-box
midfielder.
Playing
in
the
double
pivot
he
has
truly
made
an
imprint
with
his
work
rate,
versatility
and
aggression.

Moreover,
his
exceptional
expertise
has
been
the
technical
prowess
to
progress
the
ball
upfield.
Conte
has
lined
up
his
Spurs
side
in
a
3-4-3
formation
and
considering
Svanberg’s
playing
profile,
he
could
be
the
ideal
fit
beside
Hojbjerg.


Transfer
Fee

Svanberg’s
current
deal
expires
in
2023
and
the
Serie
A
side
is
reportedly
ready
to
offer
him
a
new
deal.
However,
the
current
link-up
means
the
midfielder
could
seek
a
new
opportunity.
The
Italian
in
that
regard
could
be
forced
to
sell
him
in
January.
It
is
understood
that
a
fee
in
the
region
of
€15
million
hence
could
be
enough
to
price
him
away.

However,
apart
from
Spurs,
Manchester
City,
Arsenal
and
Inter
Milan
too
are
reportedly
keeping
a
close
eye
on
the
situation.
Hence,
with
so
many
rumours
in
the
fix,
it
remains
to
be
seen
where
Svanberg
ends
up
this
month.
