A select round-up of the latest news relating to Tottenham Hotspur…
With December almost upon us, talk will inevitably turn to winter transfers, even if the January transfer window is still a month away.
Tottenham Hotspur had a mixed bag of summer additions, with Victor Wanyama making an immediate impact, Georges-Kevin N’Koudou showing glimpses of his ability, Vincent Janssen failing to replicate his best form and Moussa Sissoko bearing the brunt of supporters’ criticism. So what can Spurs fans expect in January?
Given Tottenham’s recent struggles it would be no surprise if their manager Mauricio Pochettino attempted to further strengthen in key areas, with a new striker surely a priority.
At just 22, Belotti would represent a brilliant piece of business if Tottenham can sign him. However, with a contract until the summer of 2020 he will not come cheap, if at all.
In other news, Calcio Mercato claims that Tottenham could have the chance to ditch Sissoko as early as January, with Juventus and Inter Milan both monitoring his situation.
The Serie A clubs are looking to strengthen their respective midfields and would be interested in signing Sissoko if Tottenham deemed him surplus to requirements.
However, they would not be willing to pay £30million for the player and are instead keen on signing him on loan for the second half of the campaign.
What that would mean for the player longer term remains to be seen.
