Tottenham Hotspur need some quick defensive reinforcements and the most defining position that they are in dire need of a player is at left-back. Although their striker force is as week as it can be, the left-back role played by current first choice defender Danny Rose and Jan Vertonghen are clearly suffering as the latter is playing in a makeshift role to cover for the injury plagued Danny Rose.
Criscito has previously played in Serie A with Genoa and Juventus and is currently plying his trade in Russia with Zenit St Petersburg, though a move out from Russia seems likely. Spurs could certainly do worse in their pursuit to find an upgrade for current first-choice left-back Danny Rose. The current Zenit man, according to the transfermarkt.com has a market price of €16m at most.
