Transfer News: Tottenham tipped to sign Raul Jimenez and Conor Coady
According to transfer news from Birmingham Live, Tottenham have been urged to sign Wolves duo Raul Jimenez and Conor Coady. Former Spurs midfielder Darren Anderton urged the current Spurs manager to raid his former club for Jimenez and Coady.
Spurs are all set to visit the Molineux tomorrow which means Nuno Espirito Santo will return to his former stomping grounds. It was during his three-year spell in the Premier League that made Wolves one of the most tricky sides to get over. It was there that he made his name and after last season, Spurs came calling, only for the Portuguese tactician to accept the offer.
Spurs have given some decent players to Nuno for this season with the trio of Pierluigi Gollini, Christian Romero and Bryan Gil moving to North London. Spurs have had a mixed start so far with the win over Manchester City and a loss to follow against Pacos de Ferreira. That could end up forcing the club back into the market for further reinforcements.
Former Spurs man, Darren Anderton was of the opinion that Spurs should raid Wolves for the signings of Jimenez and Coady. He felt that Nuno should use his prior connections and get his former charges.
“If I was part of Tottenham’s recruitment team, I’d be looking at Conor Coady and Raul Jimenez all day long – not least because of Nuno Espirito Santo’s links with Wolves… those are two players who would absolutely improve the Spurs squad. Coady has proven himself to be a top, top centre-back, a player who loves to defend.
I’m a little bit worried by the partnership of Eric Dier and Davinson Sanchez. Don’t get me wrong, they’re very good players, but Conor Coady is a different class… Jimenez is a great, great player. Fingers crossed he can get back to his normal self with no future injuries or complications – and if he’s available, with or without Harry Kane in the team, I’d love to see him in a Spurs shirt because I think he’d just add so much to that team.”

It is definitely an appealing suggestion as the manager would know all about the players and might not have problems settling in. However, even Nuno will know how vital they are for his former side and prising them away will be easier said than done.
But if the duo does, somehow, end up at N17 in the future, not a lot of Spurs would be complaining.
