Pete O’Rourke outlines Tottenham’s transfer priorities and preparations for the last ten days of the January window.
Tottenham intends to let go of a number of marginal players this month before looking to add a new midfield player, according to the most recent report from Football Insider.
The team has already made two early additions during the transfer window: center-back Radu Dragusin from Serie A team Genoa was permanently transferred, and Timo Werner was signed on loan from RB Leipzig.
The North London squad still views acquiring a midfield player as a “priority,” although prioritizing outbound transfers over inbound acquisitions is said to be the current strategy.
On Football Insider’s Inside Track Podcast, transfer correspondent Pete O’Rourke claims that manager Ange Postecoglou wants to “clear the decks” by getting rid of players who don’t fit into his long-term goals.
In addition, O’Rourke asserts that Tottenham is prioritizing the departure of more players in the first team before adding a new midfield player.
Thus far, Hugo Lloris, Eric Dier, and Ivan Perisic are among the notable exits. In addition, Djed Spence has been leased to Genoa, Tanganga has been sent to Millwall on loan, and Sergio Reguilon has joined Brentford on loan.
According to reports, the team is also eager to let go of Ryan Sessegnon and Bryan Gil.
