A new midfielder is Tottenham’s priority going into the final 48 hours of the January transfer window, according to the Telegraph.
Spurs have mostly been linked with forwards this month. The current injury crisis has left the Londoners desperately short up front, but Son Heung-min’s return from the Asian Cup has lessened the need to recruit attackers.
Central midfield remains a bit of a problem, however. Mousa Dembele has left for China, and there is no guarantee Victor Wanyama will remain fit after making his latest comeback from a knee injury.
The Telegraph claims a midfielder is the club’s priority instead of a forward, which makes sense. Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Adrien Rabiot has been heavily linked with a move to north London but there are doubts about his arrival.
Tottenham have also made an enquiry about Monaco midfielder Youri Tielemans, according to reports in Belgium.
There could also be a couple of outgoings before Thursday’s deadline. The Telegraph’s report suggests Spurs are still listening to offers for Georges-Kevin Nkoudou and Vincent Janssen.
Nkoudou made his first start of the season against Crystal Palace on Sunday but failed to impress and isn’t likely to feature again any time soon. Janssen hasn’t played a single minute of senior football this term.
