In recent months, Tottenham Hotspur has been connected to players like Evan Ferguson and Kaoru Mitoma.


Regarding Brighton players’ availability, Fabrizio Romano has now provided an update on CaughtOffside that appears encouraging for Spurs.


According to the transfer insider, more high-profile players should be made available to the market by the Seagulls in 2019.


Romano insisted that the Premier League south coast club would “always” cash in on their top players for a sizable profit, but he did not name any names.


TalkSPORT reported in November that Tottenham thought Ferguson would be the long-term solution to take Harry Kane’s place at the N17.


In the meantime, The Athletic reported during the summer transfer window that Ange Postecoglou, the manager of Spurs, is a huge fan of Mitoma.

Romano made it clear that if the right money comes in, we could see other stars leave Brighton for bigger clubs in the near future.


Their system will always be to profit from their best players—at least, that’s what they want to do,” he stated.


“It’s still early to tell what they plan to do in the summer with regard to selling players, but more ‘big names’ should be on the market soon. but only if they get some insanely high bids.


“At this point, it’s too soon to discuss names, but maybe in the upcoming months, it will become evident which players are top priorities for European elite clubs, and then we’ll see what kind of money Brighton demand.”

It’s encouraging to learn from Romano that Spurs should have a chance to sign players like Mitoma and Ferguson the following season.


Tottenham won’t be obtaining either player for a low price, that much is certain. Selling their best players has brought in enormous profits for the Seagulls in recent years, and this is probably not going to change.


As for Mitoma and Ferguson, their contracts are set to expire in 2027 and 2029, respectively, so it’s not like they have any pressure to cash in.


However, if Ferguson and Mitoma were to join Postecoglou at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, they would both be elite players who would undoubtedly strengthen the Spurs roster.


Spurs could definitely use more reinforcements in their center-forward and left-wing positions. On the left side of the Seagulls attack, Mitoma is a formidable force, and Ferguson is an exceptional striker.


Watch this space over the next few months. Although a January move might be premature, it would be worthwhile to observe what transpires during the summer window.
