The injury to Micky van de Ven has come as a major blow for Tottenham who were already short of options in the defense.
The Dutch defender suffered a hamstring injury against Chelsea during the chaotic 4-1 defeat on Monday night.
The injury has been described as a ‘significant’ one by Ange with the player expected to be out for the ‘foreseeable future’.
To make matters worse for Tottenham, Cristian Romero will miss the next three games as well after he picked up a red card for a tackle on Enzo during the same game.
Tottenham do not have back up options, with Eric Dier the only available centre-back for Ange.
They signed 18-year-old Ashley Phillips from Blackburn in the summer who is expected to be thrown into the first-team due to the current crisis.
But Spurs have began working on making some signings as per the latest report.
Mexican transfer expert Fernando Esquivel has now revealed that Tottenham have now submitted a formal offer to Club America to sign centre-back Sebastian Caceres.
He is a name that has been strongly linked with Spurs recently with several reports claiming that Spurs are looking to sign him in January.
And now as per Esquivel, Tottenham have started negotiations with the club over a deal for Caceres.
As per him, the player and his representatives have given the ‘green light’ for the move and that the Mexican club are expected to respond to the Premier League side’s offer ‘in the coming days’.
It is said that Spurs want him on a permanent deal in January.
The tweet translates to this:
Negotiations initiated by Tottenham Hotspur for Sebastián Cáceres.
Tottenham have sent a FORMAL OFFER to Club América for the Uruguayan Central. It is by Definitive Transfer.
There is a “green light” from Agent/Player.
Club América analyzes and will respond in the coming days. The English seek to have him secured for the start of 2024.
