Tottenham Hotspur has taken the Premier League by surprise as they position themselves as early title contenders, despite the unexpected departure of their star striker, Harry Kane, to Bayern Munich.
Regardless of initial skepticism, their current standing in the league table speaks for itself.
However, maintaining this lead won’t be straightforward, given stiff competition from Arsenal, the current champions Manchester City, and a rejuvenated Liverpool side under Jurgen Klopp.
With the winter transfer window approaching, insiders suggest that Tottenham are already strategizing their next moves.
This might entail parting ways with certain key players.
Giovani Lo Celso and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg are two names rumored to possibly leave during this window.
There’s speculation that a Spanish side might be keen on loaning Lo Celso, while Atletico Madrid’s interest in Hojbjerg could open up funds for Tottenham to pursue Chelsea’s Conor Gallagher.
In addition to this, sources close to CaughtOffside reveal that strengthening the left wing is a top priority for the team, particularly due to injuries sustained by Ivan Perisic and Manor Solomon.
An intriguing option for this position is Jota, the former Celtic player who currently plays in the Saudi Pro League.
Interestingly, after only two months with his new club, Al-Ittihad, he has found himself out of favor under the management of Nuno Espirito Santo.
Given these circumstances, Tottenham might find an opportune moment to secure Jota during the upcoming January transfer window.
