We are nearly halfway through January and got our first signing in this morning, with Gedson Fernandes joining on loan from Benfica.
Who could follow Fernandes in? And who might be leaving before the deadline? Here is some of the latest transfer news surrounding Spurs…
Attractive Midfield Option Could Be Available For £20m
The Daily Mail understands that we retain an interest in Nice midfielder Wylen Cyprian who is valued at £20m. The 24-year-old has scored seven goals and provided five assists this season under manager Patrick Vieira.
I can’t see this happening after the arrival of Gedson. If we are to sign another midfielder this month it will surely be a genuine holding player.
Negotiations Over Eriksen Price Ongoing With Inter
Daniel Levy wants £17m to sell Christian Eriksen this month and at the moment Inter are only offering £8.5m, according to Sky Sports Italy.
While I want to move on from the Eriksen saga as quickly as possible, I actually side with Levy on this one. £17m would still represent a bargain for the Italians even if Eriksen would be available for free in a few months.
Vertonghen Not Giving Anything Away On Contract
“I feel like everything I say will affect it in one way or the other, so I prefer not to answer, the Belgian told Sky Sports. “I’m a happy man. I love the guys. Life is good in London and at this great club. That’s all I want to say.”
I suspect Jose Mourinho got his way with Toby Alderweireld’s new deal, but Levy isn’t going to do business with a second defender who is past 30.
Vertonghen probably wants to stay so doesn’t want to burn any bridges yet.
