Tottenham target Riccardo Sottil in next summer window

Calciomercato claims that Tottenham have made Riccardo Sottil their top target for the next summer window.

The 20-year-old is one of the best players in the Fiorentina side and also has played for the Italy U21 team. Sottil mostly plays as a right-winger and spent his formative years at Torino and Genoa. The Italian joined Fiorentina in 2016 and spent a year on loan at Pescara.

The report adds that Tottenham are scouting the 20-year-old but Fiorentina do not want to lose the talented Italian.

Tottenham need another quality winger?

Sottil is already a regular for Fiorentina this season and has started three games in all competitions for the side.

Spurs could do with more attackers, especially wide players, however, we have Jack Clarke out on loan at Leeds United.

The winger joined Spurs in the summer but has found minutes hard to come by under Marcelo Bielsa this season.

Sottil is still a little raw and needs to be under the right manager to develop further. Mauricio Pochettino is excellent in working with young players and it will be interesting to see if we make a move for the Italian in the summer.

Tottenham spent big in the recent window and hopefully, we can sign a few more talented players to continue developing the side.

Tottenham and Napoli in contact over Kalidou Koulibaly

Kalidou Koulibaly is one of the best centre-backs in the world. The 28-year-old has been magnificent for Napoli in recent years, and is one of the few defenders to have ensured Liverpool didn’t beat them easily.

Napoli aren’t having a great time in recent months and El Desmarque claims that Jose Mourinho is keen on landing the Senegal star (h/t Calciomercato).

The report adds that Tottenham and Napoli are in contact over the centre-back and the star is valued at €100m (h/t Calciomercato).

Real Madrid are also keen on landing the defender and the report claims he could leave given the condition at the Serie A club. Napoli have a great chance of qualifying for the Champions League group stage. However, they lie seventh in the Serie A, 17 points behind leaders Inter Milan.

Tottenham’s defensive issues

Spurs ran out 5-0 winners in their previous league game against Burnley. The Clarets never really put up a fight, and Son Heung-min scored an incredible solo goal. Mourinho saw us concede two goals in his first four games in charge, and that has to change.

Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld are free agents in the summer, and it will be interesting to see which one of the stars stays at the club.

Koulibaly would be an incredible addition for any team in the world, and he could our defence into the best in the league.

Jose Mourinho not keen on making defensive additions in January transfer window

Jose Mourinho’s time at Tottenham started off well with three wins on the spin. However, the new boss was brought down to earth after a 2-1 defeat to Manchester United.

Spurs weren’t at their best at Old Trafford, but we did see a great goal from Dele Alli. The problem for the team since Mourinho’s arrival has been the poor defending.

We have conceded two goals in every game under the Portuguese, and Mourinho was asked about the defence during the press conference ahead of the Burnley game.

The boss was asked if the defence could be fixed or improved with signings in January, but Mourinho wasn’t sure that new players would fix things (h/t Football.london):

“It’s not the defence. It’s the defensive process which is a different thing. When we speak about defence we speak about keepers, centre-backs, the mistakes you make at the back.”

The manager added that he didn’t pinpoint individuals and claimed fixing the defence is a process:

“I don’t look at individuals but the defensive process, and that belongs to 11 players on the pitch. It is in our organisation that we have to resolve our problems, not about one players, or signings. It’s a process.”

Tottenham need to get back to winning ways

Spurs had closed the gap to fourth-placed Chelsea after winning two games in the league, however, we sit nine points behind the Blues now.

We have to finish in the top four and play in the Champions League next season. Mourinho can improve the side in January, and it will be interesting to see what moves he can make.

Spurs aren’t known for spending big in the winter window and the boss has some tough decisions to make regarding our playing staff.

Donny van de Beek to snub Tottenham in favour of Real Madrid

Netherlands international Donny van de Beek prefers a move to Real Madrid over Tottenham, according to De Telegraaf (h/t Express).

The 22-year-old has been in great form since the last season and helped them reach the Champions League semis.

Van de Beek has been in good touch this season too. The midfielder has 11 goals and five assists in all competitions for Ajax.

Spurs could have done with a quality midfielder joining, especially with Christian Eriksen on the final year of his contract.

However, Van de Beek’s representatives have hinted that the Dutchman wants a move to Real over Spurs (h/t Express).

Real made an offer of €50million in the previous window but the midfielder remained at the Dutch giants (h/t Express).

The La Liga giants are set to offer €55m in hopes of landing him (h/t Express). Ajax have seen several talents leave after the previous campaign, and it will be interesting to see what happens with Van de Beek.

Tottenham’s summer plans will be important

Manchester United could move for Christian Eriksen in January window

Manchester United could move for Tottenham star Christian Eriksen in the January window, according to the Mirror (h/t Daily Star).

The Dane is a free agent in the summer and can speak with foreign clubs in the winter window.

The report claims that United moved for the Dane at the start of this season but he wasn’t keen on joining them.

Atletico Madrid and Juventus are keen on landing him on a free (h/t Daily Star) and it will be interesting to see what happens with him in the coming weeks.

United would have to part with a fee to sign him in January, however, they could save up and land him for nothing in the summer.

The Dane hasn’t featured much under Jose Mourinho since the Portuguese took over. Dele Alli has done a great job in the midfield and was on target again with a sumptuous goal against Manchester United.

It still came in a losing cause, and this was the Portuguese manager’s first loss since taking over at Spurs.

Spurs should sell Eriksen in January

The Dane doesn’t seem to be part of our plans at the moment, and it would be better to sell him in January than keep him till the end of the season.

We could make some money off the 27-year-old but selling him to a Premier League rival should be off the cards.

Spurs cannot strengthen their rivals as we have done in the past. Dimitar Berbatov and Michael Carrick are previous examples of us selling to Manchester United.
