The transfer window may be closed for several months but that doesn’t stop the rumour mills and several continue to identify the left back position as a problem for Spurs. Yesterday, it was claimed that we could still pick up Razvan Rat following his release from West Ham and while that was too underwhelming to comment on, today’s link is a little more interesting.
Yuto Nagatomo is a left sided defender currently playing his football at Inter Milan. At 27 he is a Japanese international with vast experience, having claimed 63 caps for his country. Nagatomo has a keen eye for goal too with nine strikes in 91 league matches for Inter – a more than respectable tally and it’s thought that he could bring continuity to the left back slot at White Hart Lane.
This may disappear along with the others but it’s a more creditable suggestion than Razvan Rat at least.
