Why Tottenham have to buy in January irrespective of possible exits
We have only one point from our opening two Champions League games and are out of the Carabao Cup too.
The Times (h/t Sun) claims that Eric Dier, Victor Wanyama, Christian Eriksen, Danny Rose and Serge Aurier could be sold in January. Tottenham needed to get rid of these unwanted players in the summer but were unable to complete the deals.
We did sign a few players, but only Tanguy Ndombele has been a regular. Giovani Lo Celso and Ryan Sessegnon have been blighted with injuries, with no starts between them.
Spurs have to spend in January
Eriksen, Dier and even Rose should get us some decent money in January, however, Tottenham cannot decide to act after getting rid of these players.
We need more fresh faces to fix things and there is a chance that the players could try to push for a summer move.
Eriksen is a free agent once the season ends and so are Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld. The trio can demand higher wages due to the lack of a transfer fee, which would be a blow to our finances.
We have to keep a check on our finances as the new stadium is now open, but Daniel Levy has to loosen the purse strings. Bruno Fernandes is being linked with a January move (h/t Sun), and we could do with some cover for the full-backs too.
We could also do with another centre-back joining the club after Vertonghen and Alderweireld’s struggles this season. There is a real fear of us missing out on the top four if things don’t click. Leicester City and West Ham look decent while Chelsea and Arsenal seem to be winning more than losing.
Having extra players would be a strain on the wage bill, and hopefully, we sell some
