Tottenham will have a January transfer budget of around £35million, according to reports. According to Daily Mail, Spurs could boost their funds by allowing several players to leave, including out-of-favour Georges-Kevin N’Koudou and Michel Vorm.

N’Koudou has found first-team opportunities hard to come by and could leave; while Vorm – club’s No.2 goalkeeper – has already attracted interest from Belgian outfit Club Brugge. Manager Mauricio Pochettino is willing to sign players in the January transfer market, provided they are available.

“For us it’s to see if there’s an opportunity to try to improve the squad and to sign some good quality players. If it’s not possible I’m happy with my squad,” Pochettino told Football.London.

In terms of targets, Spurs have been linked with moves for Fulham starlet Ryan Sessegnon, Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw and Everton midfielder Ross Barkley.

Barkley, who has been linked with a January move to Spurs, is also on the radar of reigning champions Chelsea. The England midfielder was reportedly on the verge of a £35million transfer to the Blues just hours before the summer window closed, only to pull out at the last minute. It is believed he was alerted to Tottenham’s interest and decided to weigh up his options.

Pochettino is a big admirer of Barkley, who is on the comeback trail following surgery on a ruptured hamstring. The Evertonian was linked with a move to Spurs in the summer; however, the deal failed to happen.

Meanwhile, with doubts over Danny Rose’s long-term future continues to mount, Fulham’s Sessegnon is seen as a potential replacement for the England defender.

According to Guardian, Fulham have informed the potential suitors that the 17-year-old sensation will be allowed to leave Craven Cottage for £30million in the January window. The report further says that the Championship club have now opened the door to Sessegnon’s exit by setting the valuation in conversations with front-runners Tottenham and Manchester United.

Many expect Sessegnon to leave Craven Cottage in 2018 in a big-money move elsewhere, despite the teenager signing his first professional contract with Fulham in June.

The teenage prodigy has been playing at left full-back and on the left of a front three this season, scoring 5 goals and 3 assists in 24 appearances. However, Fulham may be forced to sell if they fail to achieve promotion to the Premier League.

Manchester United’s Luke Shaw is another top target of Pochettino. The 22-year-old, who has been unfortunate with injuries plaguing his career, has recently just won back his place in Jose Mourinho’s side.

The former Southampton full-back has previously hinted that he would be open to a reunion with Pochettino, as Shaw bids to prove himself to England boss Gareth Southgate ahead of next summer’s World Cup in Russia.

Tottenham new stadium

Tottenham’s new stadium is towards completion and a new time-lapse video from last week has been shared which highlights the final stages of work being done.

The video begins with a view of the exterior where cranes are working on one section of the structure. The next part features an aerial view of the entire stadium. The video shows construction being done throughout the night to get the venue ready as quickly as possible.

A clip from the video showcases a section where numerous glass panes are yet to be installed, however, a number of cranes and workers are on the job.

The pitch was installed a week ago and an interior shot displays the grass and the artificial pitch lighting. It is great to see that most of the seats are installed and the LED hoardings across the seating area of the stadium.

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.

However, sources have told ESPN that there were no discussions in the summer and he isn’t a target for Mauricio Pochettino in the winter window.

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.
