Tottenham Hotspur has yet to improve their squad with the January transfer window open for another two weeks. The north London club finds itself fighting for a top-four spot, so making an addition or two could tilt the battle in their favor.
Every pundit and supporter has the targets that Spurs should pursue, especially if Tottenham plans to back manager Antonio Conte financially. On talkSPORT(via Mirror), Pundit Jamie O’Hara stated that Leeds United superstar Raphinha should be a name The Lilywhites should pursue.
“He glides past people, the way he moves, the free-kick he almost scored. Everything about his game,” O’Hara said. “I would love him at Spurs; I would love him. But I don’t know if he would ever come, and Leeds definitely wouldn’t sell him. Brilliant player.”
This season, Leeds United wants to stay above water and avoid relegation. They’re 15th in the Premier League table, so they might hold onto Raphinha, who’s under contract until 2024, to ensure they don’t head down.
Should Spurs take O’Hara’s advice and pursue the Brazil international, TransferMarkt puts the 25-year-old’s transfer value at £36-million. The Leeds right-winger has scored 14 goals and registered 11 assists in 50 appearances for the English club.
