Tottenham Hotspur could reportedly be set to make a move for Max Kilman in the summer.
According to CBS journalist Ben Jacobs, the north London outfit could be in the market for a new centre-half in the next window.
Spurs are currently in fifth place in the Premier League. But they have had difficulty keeping the ball out of their net this season.
They’ve shipped 35 goals so far in the Premier League. That is the most of any club currently in the top half.
That’s actually four more than Wolves have conceded.
Shockingly, there are actually only five clubs in the whole league to have conceded more.
It has been surprising to see Spurs so vulnerable at the back considering Antonio Conte’s reputation for being a defensive-minded coach.
But it looks as though they could be set to strengthen in the summer. And Kilman might be in their crosshairs.
Jacobs said (Caught Offside): “With Milan Skriniar going to PSG and his Inter teammate Alessandro Bastoni not likely to be gettable, Hincapie could become a more urgent priority for Tottenham. And if they qualify for the Champions League, there will be a healthy budget to spend again this summer.
“Also keep an eye on Wolves’ Max Kilman, who Spurs like and could well be on the move at the end of the season.”
Spurs have actually been linked with Kilman before. In January 2022, it was claimed Spurs wanted Adama Traore, but also liked his Molineux teammate Kilman.

So Spurs are being linked with Kilman again, but Wolves should not be intending to cash in.
Potentially, Kilman, 25, could become a top-quality Premier League defender in the coming years.
He was phenomenal for most of last season.
This term he has lacked consistency playing alongside a more inexperienced defender in Nathan Collins.
But the pair have serious potential as a partnership and could be solid picks at Molineux for years to come.
Kilman now has Craig Dawson to learn from, and Wolves should not be looking to entertain interest from other clubs. Unless, of course, a truly silly offer comes in.
