Birmingham City number one Ben Foster has been linked with a move to White Hart Lane as a replacement for under fire Heurelho Gomes.
Foster, who recently announced his temporary reitrement from International football, has proven a huge hit at St. Andrew’s with a series of stand out performances which culminated has culminated in a Carling Cup winners medal.
It is these displays that has seen Foster firmly placed on Harry Redknapp’s radar as the Tottenham manager looks to shake up his squad after the North london club missed out on fourth place last night.
A series of high profile errors, the latest in the 1-1 draw with Blackpool, from Gomes has left Redknapp wondering as to whether the Brazilian is good enough to keep the number one spot as the club look to push on after the heartbreak of missing Champions League football.
West Ham’s Rob Green was seen as a possible solution to the goalkeeping problem but Redknapp see’s Foster as a more viable replacement in between the sticks.
At the other end of the pitch, it is being reported that the club will be open to offers for striking pair Roman Pavlyuchenko and Jermain Defoe. Both have been hit and miss this campaign and Redknapp would like to boost his striking options with Espanyol’s Pablo Osvaldo and Giuseppe Rossi of Villarreal viable options for the Spurs manager.
Tottenham downplay interest in signing 25-year-old Colombian star
Tottenham have no plans of signing Wilmar Barrios from Boca Junior, sources have told ESPN. The Colombian international had a decent World Cup with the national side and was linked with a move to Spurs, according to the report.
Reports (h/t ESPN) suggested that we had agreed on personal terms with the 25-year-old’s representatives and were preparing a bid for the midfielder.
Spurs were the only club to not sign a player in the summer but the manager was open to signings in January.
The manager was quoted by ESPN as saying:
“In football you always need to think you can improve, and you need to try to improve your squad.
“We couldn’t sign [in the summer] for different circumstances, but we wanted to sign.
“Now January will come and we’re going to try to sign. I think it’s not only us — all the clubs and managers want to sign players, must refresh the squad.
“We need to try again in January or the summer if we want to move on the team and the club.”
Spurs are in a great position in the Premier League as we are just a couple of points behind the league leaders.
Hopefully, the right signings can help us push on this season and lead us to our first ever Premier League title.
Tottenham eyeing 6-goal Championship sensation for the January window
The 24-year-old has expressed this season and has six goals and two assists in 10 Championship games. The midfielder is also on the radar of England boss Gareth Southgate, who watched the Englishman against Derby County, as per the report.
The midfielder, however, is happy at Blackburn for now. The 24-year-old was quoted by the Sun (h/t Express) as saying:
“I could have left Blackburn but I’m way happier now than the time I could have left Gillingham.
“It’s a massive a massive club, I love being here, everything is here to go to the next level.
“I had conversations with the manager and the club and they said they didn’t want me to leave.
“So I told them I’ll leave it with you, I want to stay, I won’t kick up a fuss.”
The youngster added that the club could still sell him if they accept the right offer, but added he wants to play at the top level with Rovers.
The 24-year-old joined Rovers from Gillingham at the start of the season for just £750,000 (h/t Express). Tottenham didn’t make any signings in the summer and it will be interesting if we dip into the market in the winter window.
We do require some fresh faces to provide cover for some of our stars, and hopefully Daniel Levy and Mauricio Pochettino pull off the right deals come January.
Arsenal leading race to sign £50m-rated Tottenham target
The Turkish youngster joined the Italian side in 2017 and has been one of the most impressive players for the team.
The report claims that the Gunners are leading Tottenham and Bayern Munich for the 21-year-old’s signature. Under has a couple of goals and three assists from eight games this season and played for the Turkish national side during the international break.
Although Tottenham didn’t bring in new faces in the summer, we can’t rule out transfers in the winter window.
Almost every team will be looking to add quality in the winter window and we should be no different. It will be interesting to see if we continue keeping tabs on the Turkish international as the season progresses.
Tottenham could do with someone of Under’s quality in the team, as he seems ready for Premier League football.
The 21-year-old could get even better under the watchful eye of Mauricio Pochettino. The Argentine is one of the best managers in the world, and his record of getting the best out of youngsters could help us land some quality players in January.
