John Wenham is optimistic that Tottenham can beat Brentford to the signing of Antonio Nusa from Club Brugge in January, believing they can pull off the same ploys as Pape Matar Sarr and Destiny Udogie.
Both Sarr and Udogie were signed, but they were later returned on loan to the teams that had originally acquired them.
This season, both players have significantly improved and established themselves as mainstays in Ange Postecoglou’s squad.
As reported by Tottenham News on January 18, Johan Lange expressed interest in introducing Nusa to North London.
A few days later, on January 20, Fabrizio Romano posted on his official X account that the North London team is “pushing” to reach an agreement that would allow Nusa to stay in Belgium until the end of the season.
On January 28, the Italian journalist revealed a new development in the Nusa transfer rumor, indicating that he may be close to signing with Brentford, Spurs’ London rivals.
Wenham is optimistic that the team can reach an agreement for the player, who might end up being quite valuable to Ange Postecoglou, in light of this revelation.
Wenham stated exclusively to Tottenham News, “We’re so full in those wide areas right now.” We have Timo Werner on loan and Brennan Johnson, on whom we have spent a great deal of money.
If this signing materialized, it would be a future one. If we decide not to keep Werner after evaluating his condition in the summer, Nusa will, in my opinion, take his place in the squad.
“It would be another agreement, like the ones for Sarr and Udogie, when the player is bought and then sent back out on loan.
“I support us signing the best young players available, and if that means loaning them back, that’s fine too, as it has proven to be a successful strategy for us in the past.”
In other Tottenham news, the club lost out on the chance to recruit three players, who are currently valued at over £80 million, for a total of only £8 million.
