Another January signing is reportedly of interest to Tottenham Hotspur.


The Lilywhites are still trying to add to their options even if the contracts for Radu Dragusin and Timo Werner are almost done.


The Asian Cup will keep Captain Heung min-Son out of action for the whole month of January, and Ange Postecoglou will have to step in owing to injuries to Christian Romero and Micky van de Ven.

Spurs may try to add another South American to their roster by signing Ezequiel Fernandez, a notable player for Boca Juniors. In the Argentinean League, the 21-year-old is regarded as a defensive playmaker who led the Blue and Gold to the Copa Libertadores final this year.


With a remarkable 86.6% pass completion percentage this season, he is frequently observed pressuring his opponents for possession while acting as a sort of deep-lying playmaker.


In addition, he averages 1.9 tackles per 90 and 0.9 interceptions per 90, which strengthens his ability to recover the ball and launch an offensive play for his team. OneFootball recently revealed that Brighton and Hove Albion, a Premier League team, were also interested in signing the midfield player to play in England. This would likely make him a reasonably inexpensive choice.

Fernandez, who is rumored to be worth £16 million, has further enhanced his pedigree at such a young age by having played for Argentina twice at the Under-23 level. In a recent exclusive sit-down interview with FourFourTwo, Postecoglou described the criteria he uses to select new players.


“First off, they’re people; I don’t see them as players,” he stated in an exclusive interview for the November issue.


“There are so many incredibly brilliant players in the world, especially at this level. People discuss recruiting, but since they’re all so skilled, it’s difficult to get it wrong.
