“I am told” – Journalist now issues major Tottenham transfer update ahead of January

According to journalist Dean Jones, Antonio Conte would prioritize a “forward” and a “center-back” in January for Tottenham Hotspur.

Tottenham have struggled with consistency in recent weeks, losing ground in the Premier League title chase. They may look to the transfer market to remedy some of their deficiencies.

Richarlison, Yves Bissouma, and Djey Spence were among the high-priced additions that Conte made to his first-team roster in the summer, for which he spent about £150 million.

It is reported, however, that the Italian tactician is eager to recruit additional reinforcements following losses to Manchester United, Newcastle, and Liverpool before the midseason break.

According to The Times, Conte wants to add a central defender, a midfielder, and a striker to his team, and he will prioritize quality over number when acquiring new players.

According to reports, Conte wants any incoming players to be “proven” and “capable of stepping straight into the starting lineup.”

Tottenham’s advancement to the final stages of the Champions League has increased the club’s available money, however adding known talents in January is notoriously difficult.

Jones believes that, despite the uncertainty surrounding Tottenham’s long-term right-back position, Conte will prioritize other areas of the field.

In an interview with GiveMeSport, he said: “The right-back situation always seems up in the air, so it would not be a surprise to see links.

“But I am told a forward and centre-back are going to be the most pressing matters for Conte in January.”

In a summer interview with WettFreunde, Fabrizio Romano said that Tottenham “had been studying” the growth of Mohamed Simakan for “a long time,” while also liking Josko Gvardiol.

“I can tell you that one of the players you have been watching for a long time is RB Leipzig’s Mohamed Simakan,” Romano said.

“Another player they hold in high esteem is Gvardiol. Those are two players they really like, but it depends on the price. We know how difficult it is to negotiate with Leipzig.”

Both central defenders are having outstanding seasons in Germany and might cost any potential bidder a large amount of money if they seek to lure them away from the Red Bull Arena in January.
