According to reports from Italy, Tottenham hopes to sign Matias Soule in January in order to bolster their roster with another star from Juventus. Spurs may once more take advantage of Juventus’ financial difficulties as they have signed multiple players from the Serie A team.
In January 2022, the north Londoners signed Rodrigo Bentancur and Dejan Kulusevski from the Turin team. Since then, three more possible agreements between the two teams have been discussed.
English winger Samuel Iling-Junior has been connected to a Premier League comeback, with Spurs purportedly being interested. Ange Postecoglou’s team is apparently also interested in left-back Andrea Cambiaso.
Spurs reportedly received an offer for 20-year-old midfielder Soule, and could now sign him. It is said that Crystal Palace, a rival company in London, will compete with them.
Journalist Fabio Santini of TV Play in Italy claims that Soule might go for about £17 million in January. The Argentina U20 international would need to be persuaded by Spurs to leave his loan with Serie A team Frosinone.
Spurs may benefit from Soule’s versatility. The young player is capable of playing anywhere across the forward line or in midfield.
In 14 games this season for his loan club, he has six goals. He has not played for FIFA’s maximum of two clubs in a single campaign, so if he completes a move, he will be eligible to play for Spurs this season as Juventus did not use him before his loan spell was over in the summer window.
It is anticipated that Spurs will have a busy January transfer window. The team’s shocking title challenge has been derailed by an injury crisis, and Postecoglou’s team is currently fifth in the Premier League.
Going into the new year, Spurs’ top priority will probably be a center-back. Micky van de Ven’s remarkable beginning to his life in England was cut short by a hamstring injury. The Dutchman won’t be there.
Due to a dearth of options at center back, Postecoglou was forced to select a back four consisting of full-backs when Cristian Romero was suspended earlier this month. According to the Australian, Johan Lange, the new sporting director, is getting ready for the January window.
Since the injuries weren’t spread out, I suppose the difficulty we faced was that they all happened at once. Regarding January, that is well out of the planning. In terms of all the background work, Johan [Lange] has taken over and is leading that, Postecoglou stated last week.
Even though Johan has been leading it and has brought in some people to assist him in that area, work has been done in the background. My involvement and my own sort of ramp up to it as we get closer to January and understanding exactly what our requirements are at the moment. When the time is appropriate, we’ll collaborate with him.
