Levy to hand £35m transfer budget plus cash from player sales for January transfer window – Reports

Published

on

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.
