Tottenham Hotspur may now target this man before the January transfer window closes, according to Ally McCoist’s comments.
Spurs have had a fantastic start to the month, and Ange Postecoglou will be happy with the team’s diligence in the transfer market.

Arriving now are two players who have already made their debuts: Timo Werner and Radu Dragusin.
Additionally, it appears that there may be a chance for another addition now that Hugo Lloris and Eric Dier have left.
Despite strengthening their roster, Spurs may have actually decreased their payroll so far this month.
Furthermore, senior club officials now wish to pursue a move for Kalvin Phillips of Manchester City, with plenty of January left.
Ally McCoist believes the England midfielder’s position has been made quite clear, and the player is just not playing football at City.
Speaking on talkSPORT this morning, McCoist said that in order to guarantee a berth in this summer’s England squad, the Tottenham target needed to depart in January.
Tottenham target Kalvin Phillips is urged by Ally McCoist to depart Manchester City in January.
McCoist expressed his worries by saying, “I just think the boy has got to get away and play.”
“Well, we’ve already discussed it in relation to the approaching Euros. I am aware of how devoted Gareth [Southgate] is; he sticks with Harry Maguire, for instance.

“If you’re not playing, it doesn’t mean you won’t be in the squad. There is another problem with the goalkeeper.
“Pep Guardiola has stated it quite clearly, more clearly than any manager or coach I’ve ever seen say, ‘Wee man, you’re not in my plans.'”
Naturally, it appears like Phillips would be better off moving to a team like Spurs this month.
McCoist is correct when he states that £45 million Phillips must depart Manchester City in January, and Tottenham has such an intriguing project right now.
A transfer might be contingent upon Spurs moving players like Oliver Skipp or Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.
Nonetheless, Phillips—a player who could cover multiple positions for Postecoglou—would undoubtedly be a significant improvement on both.
Additionally, the England midfielder’s presence this month would make a significant statement.
Having said that, one analyst believes Spurs already have a “secret little diamond” in their lineup, waiting to be discovered.
