Tottenham Hotspur are tipped to complete four signings this week before the winter transfer window gets closed on midnight 31st January. Manager Antonio Conte has asked the club management for reinforcements at the start of this month but Premier League giants have yet to sign any of their targets. But now club technical director Fabio Patrici, who worked with Conte at Juventus, is looking to land every possible Conte’s target this month.
Tottenham Hotspur suffered a 0-2 defeat in a London derby against Chelsea on Sunday and since then Conte has been stretching and demanding more activity from the upper management. He has identified four positions that need to be strengthened this window, a backup striker to Harry Kane, an attacking midfielder, right wing-back, and centre-back.
Football insider reports that Tottenham Hotspur have opened talks with Angers forward Mohamed-Ali Cho who is valued at £16.7 million and Spurs are willing to pay that fee. The 18-year-old forward has shown great potential this season in his 2 goals in 19 Ligue appearances this season. European scouts have backed up him as one for the future and Spurs are looking to sign this month before rivals show interest this summer.
According to a report from 90min, Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum and forward Julian Draxler are interested in a Premier League move with Tottenham Hotspur. PSG are working on a loan deal to sign French midfielder Tanguy Ndombele this month and looking to exchange either Wijnaldum or Draxler in this deal. Former Liverpool midfielder has been struggling to settle in Ligue 1 after his arrival last summer. Not he is looking to immediate Premier League return with Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United showing strong interest.
Tottenham Hotspur are also looking to sign Wolverhampton Wanderers right wing-back Adama Traore for a transfer fee of £20 million and are expected to close this deal in the coming days. North London giants definitely need a new centre-back this month and are leading the race for Sevilla defender Diego Carlos for a reported transfer fee of £30 million.
But Tottenham Hotspur Need To Sell Three Key Players First:
Spurs management has instructed Antonio Conte to offload some of his fringe players to sign his key targets this month. Tottenham Hotspur have made Dele Alli, Giovani Lo Celso, Tanguy Ndombele, and Matt Doherty available for transfer this month. Lo Celso was dropped for the Chelsea fixture completely and later player posted on his Instagram handle that he was totally fit to play. Sevilla are interested in a loan deal for the Argentine attacking midfielder and will try to make a bid this week.
PSG are closing on the Tanguy Ndombele loan deal, as Spurs are desperate to sell their most-expensive signing ever this month. If Conte agrees on Wijnaldum transfer then it will be a direct player swap deal with no loan fee involved. Tottenham will find it tough to convince Dele Alli to look for a new club this month, who has already rejected a chance to sign for Newcastle United this month. Tottenham Hotspur is favourites to win the top-four position race but definitely need reinforcements before the transfer window closes in 6 days.
