The Tottenham transfer rumours in the last twenty four hours have either focussed on Leandro Damiao or Montpelier midfielder Younes Belhanda. While few Spurs fans would argue that a striker signing would be useful, do we really need another midfielder – even if Belhanda is being widely talked up?
The media frenzy followed an announcement from Belhanda’s club stating that the player could leave during the January transfer window.
“I will let him leave, and I think he wants to leave as well,” said Montpelier President Louis Nicollin. “If they rise to €15m, everything will go through.”
However, Fenerbache are also tracking the player and some reports are even claiming that the Turkish side have agreed personal terms with the player – despite club chairman Abdullah Kigili stating,
“The current price being quoted is far too high”
Belhanda is just 22 and already has 15 caps for Morocco. He is highly thought of around Europe but is there really room for him in an overcrowded midfield at White Hart Lane?
