Gvardiol would fit right in at Spurs
In his time at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, Antonio Conte has opted to play with a makeshift back three, including Ben Davies. A natural left-back, the Welshman has played most of his football at centre-back under the Italian manager.
If the North London side were to sign the 20-year-old, it would only make sense that Conte would have him take Davies’ position.
The left-footed Croatian would have been a great addition to the side if he had signed. Considered comfortable on the ball and having the ability to play out from the back, Gvardiol could have provided the team with a different dynamic.

Considering our defensive vulnerabilities, if Gvardiol had signed for the Lilywhites this summer, our backline would’ve got the necessary qualifications to remain solid in the upcoming campaign.
