In the January transfer window, Tottenham has some work ahead of them.
Spurs made a fantastic start to the season, but an injury crisis that has exposed their lack of depth has far too easily disrupted their progress.
Due to the absence of two of their key midfield players for the African Cup of Nations in January, Spurs lack depth in the back line.
Why not sign a player who can play both positions as Spurs need to bolster both?
Ben Jacobs has been discussing Spurs’ January plans on The Debrief, and he has mentioned Trevoh Chalobah as a possible target.
Chalobah may come under attack.
Jacobs revealed his assessment of Chalobah and his plan of action.
“The name Trevoh Chalobah seems intriguing. His dream club was Bayern, but a Premier League team might make an appearance. Nottingham Forest made an attempt, but he was interested in playing in Europe, and Spurs were not a serious contender at the time since they had just signed Micky Van de Ven. Chelsea wants to settle that early in the window, so he’s available on the market and likely at a fair price. Don’t be shocked if Tottenham decides to switch from this younger center back who can play for a longer time to a more seasoned player who can fill in until some of these other players return, according to Jacobs.
Would be logical
This is an extremely logical step, in our opinion.
Chalobah is not only capable of playing in both of the positions that Spurs are in dire need of filling, but he has also established himself in London and in the Premier League. As Jacobs notes, Chalobah may be available for a reasonable price because Chelsea wants to let him go.
Spurs would be well to move forward with this acquisition in January, since Chalobah fits in many requirements for the team and offers a wealth of depth.
