According to Football Insider, Tottenham ‘will look to sign’ Fulham defender Tosin Adarabioyo in January.
Spurs were strongly linked with the Fulham centre-back in the summer as Ange Postecoglou was keen on further bolstering the defense after the signing of Micky van de Ven.
But Tottenham failed to sign another centre-back leaving them in a very delicate situation as the only back up Tottenham now have is Eric Dier and Ashley Phillips.
The report claims that Tottenham are ‘likely to revisit a deal’ in the January transfer window either ‘for a cut-price fee’ or in the form of a’ pre-contract agreement’.
Adarabioyo has one year left in his current contract which expires in June 2024 after Fulham activated the 12-month extension clause in January.
Spurs are hoping to get a deal agreed for Eric Dier in the winter window and it is suggested in the report that a move for Tosin Adarabioyo could depend on him being offloaded first.
Tosin Adarabioyo was among the three players that Ange Postecoglou recommended to the Tottenham board to sign in the summer.
It was reported that The Australian had identified his back four as a weakness at the start of the summer and had apparently given the club three names: Perr Schuurs, Gleison Bremer and Tosin Adarabioyo. These were identified by the manager hinself and chief scout Leonardo Gabbanini.
While Levy failed to secure any of the three, it’s said that Ange remains happy with how the transfer window went. They managed to sign 7 players, some of whome have already made a big impact, namely James Maddison, Manor Solomon, Micky van de Ven and Guglielmo Vicario.
Tottenham are in dire (pun intended) need of another centre-back and perhaps Ange will get one of his recommendations secured in January.
