According to The Telegraph, Tottenham Hotspur want to sign a striker, a defensive midfielder and a right-back in the final days of the January transfer window.

It has been reported that attacking midfielder Christian Eriksen is on the verge of leaving Tottenham for Inter Milan.

The report has added that Spurs head coach Jose Mourinho is looking for a striker to cover for the injured Harry Kane, a defensive midfielder and a right-back.

 

Leaving too late?

Tottenham do tend to leave it late in transfer windows, and it seems that the North London outfit are once again racing against time to get deals done, although they have already signed midfielder Gedson Fernandes on loan from Benfica.

Spurs absolutely need to sign a striker in the January transfer window, as Harry Kane is injured at the moment and there is no senior back-up option for Mourinho.

However, if Tottenham are unable to sign a right-back this month, then it will not be a massive issue, as Japhet Tanganga has shown that he can compete with Serge Aurier.

As for signing a new defensive midfielder this month, Spurs could simply utilise Victor Wanyama for the second half of the season and then look for an upgrade in the summer of 2020.
