“We are not ruling out anything” – Ange Postecoglou hints at a new signing in January

By Mehdi Gokal -

Tottenham manager Ange Postecoglou has admitted that Tottenham may be forced to sign a new midfielder in January.

Going through a massive injury crisis at the moment, Spurs have around 9 players unavailable.

Micky van de Ven and James Maddison, two of their best players this season, are both out with long-term injuries.

Rodrigo Bentancur who returned after 9 months of absence has once again been sidelined for two and a half months after Matty Cash’s tackle left him with a torn ligament last week.

Pape Matar Sarr came back from the international duty with an injury and missed the Villa game and is a doubt for the match against City.

Richarlison is back in recovery but won’t return until Christmas.

Ryan Sessegnon, Manor Solomon, and Ivan Perisic are all out too.

This has left Tottenham with an extremely depleted sqaud to compete with and it has effected their season. They have now lost three games in a row and have dropped down to the 5th place.

To make things worse, Ange will lose some key players for a month in January. Yves Bissouma, Pape Matar Sarr are expected to be unavailable during the upcoming AFCON, while Heung-min Son will be with South Korea for the Asian Cup.

While speaking ahead of the game against City, Ange Postecoglou was asked about the possibility of signing a new midfielder amid Spurs’ injury list and the African Cup of Nations.

He refused to rule out a new midfielder, saying:

“We are not ruling out anything. What you have outlined here is the best case scenario if everyone else stays fit which hasn’t been the case so far. So we maybe forced to you know. We may have no choice on it.”

The January transfer window is going to be crucial for Spurs. Failure to bolster their squad with quality signings could end up completely derailing their season
