Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with the move for the Club Brugge winger Antonio Nusa.
The 18-year-old has established himself as a key player for the Belgian club and Spurs are keen on securing his services this month. The two clubs are currently locked in talks regarding a January transfer.
However, the player is likely to stay at Brugge until the end of the season, even if the two clubs manage to secure an agreement. Fabrizio Romano has claimed that the 18-year-old winner wants to play regularly and he is not keen on leaving the Belgian club this month.

Norwegian pundit Øyvind Alsaker has urged the player to join the London club while speaking to VG.
“Tottenham is a very nice place to go. There’s a positive atmosphere there now, with a great manager who loves pace up top and players with an X-factor. There’s a nice ‘go’ at that club and a good time to come in. It hasn’t always been like that.”
It would be ideal for Spurs to let him play regularly with the Belgian club until the end of the season and the player could then join up with his new club next season.
Nusa would be a long-term investment for Tottenham and he is someone who will add more cutting edge and sharpness in the final third for them. The 18-year-old is highly rated around Europe and he could develop into a world-class attacker with the right guidance.
A fee of around €30 million (£26m) could be needed to get the deal done and Nusa certainly has the potential to justify that investment in the coming seasons.
The opportunity to play in the Premier League next season will certainly be an attractive proposition for the player and it will be interesting to see if the two clubs can iron out an agreement before the window closes.
