In what could be an increasingly frantic end to the window for Tottenham Hotspur, it seems they’ve been handed a surprise opportunity.
Daniel Levy still seems very intent on improving Ange Postecoglou’s side before the deadline, be it with an immediate signing or one for the future.

It now seems as if the long-chase of Chelsea’s Conor Gallagher isn’t quite over, with Spurs handed a fresh boost.
However, it’s a different deal that may now have been rekindled.
When Spurs were linked to the likes of 18-year-old Arthur Vermeeren earlier this month, before he ended up at Atletico Madrid, it seemed to mark a slight change in transfer strategy.
Postecoglou is known to be a manager who is excellent at developing young talent.
And it seemed that the club then earmarked Club Brugge’s Antonio Nusa as a key target for the future.
A deal then seemed to be progressing well, only for Brentford to steal the march at the eleventh hour, owing to their promise of first-team playing time.
That being said, a failed medical may have now presented a big opportunity for Tottenham right at the end of the window.

According to the Daily Mail, Spurs are now on red alert following Brentford’s move hitting an impasse.
Nusa reportedly failed his medical owing to some injury issues, including a knee problem that was causing concern.

The winger had agreed a £32m deal prior to the hitch, and it remains to be seen if the move can still be saved.
This report now states that the door could potentially be open for Tottenham, who could still make haste of this surprise opportunity before the window closes.
We’ve often seen a player fail a medical with one club in the past, only to pass one at the next.
And it definitely seems as if a deal for Nusa is still one to watch, afterall he does have so much potential.
That being said, a move for Nusa is not the only shock bid under consideration in North London right now.
