Tottenham must make the right transfer moves this January

By The Boy -

Tottenham has a seemingly never-ending stream of issues with ill-disciplined players and injuries this season which can surely no longer be made light of, or ignored. To compound the matter, squad depth isn’t anywhere near as it might appear as too many bad players that failed the last three coaches are still on the books, and Postecoglou had already swerved the opportunity to incorporate them.

A glance at the best football betting sites always reveals where the true value is to be found, and Tottenham is currently a club with ambitions that may not match their actual prospects.

Ivan Perišić, Rodrigo Bentancur, Micky van de Ven, James Maddison, Ryan Sessegnon, and Manor Solomon are all long-term injuries without adequate alternatives within the playing group. It may come as a shock to some fans, but Oliver Skipp and Eric Dier are far and away from being the required standard to feature in any Tottenham starting XI in 2024.

Who Spurs might buy in January’s winter window is now a primary concern, as opposed to just some fancy, something that the Tottenham might have a look at.

The principal concern has to be another centre-back, and indeed this week Big Ange expressed precisely this desire, which has to be said, is an unusual move for any Premier League coach, the gaffer told the press ahead of the Nottingham Forest clash, “I thought Ben Davies was outstanding as well last week. He’s getting a run of games now, but we’ve always got to be mindful that he is not a centre-back. Ultimately, we still need to sign another center-back because at the moment we are a little bit on tenterhooks because if something happens again we are short, and we are already short.”

Perr Schuurs is one name possibly worth consideration. The defender, for Torino, is reportedly interested in joining Arsenal, Tottenham, and Liverpool in the Premier League. The 23-year-old only moved to the Italian team last summer, in a move worth about £7.7 million from Ajax, where he has already made a big impression, leading to connections with England’s Premier League.

Earlier this year, Spurs were connected to a move for Edmond Tapsoba, a defender on Bayer Leverkusen’s books. After making an impression while living in Germany, the 24-year-old has been mentioned by some outlets with a transfer to the Premier League. Tapsoba has demonstrated he is a talented player who can compete for any top European club.

If Daniel Levy is genuine about Tottenham being a force amongst Europe’s footballing elite, now is not the time to hesitate.
