Tottenham have recorded an excellent start to the season, as they currently top the Premier League table. Besides, they have the best defensive record in the league while only Chelsea and Liverpool have scored more goals.
However, head coach Jose Mourinho has big decisions to make on several players’ futures, many of whom were mainstays of the side under Mauricio Pochettino.
So here are six Spurs stars who could be on the move next month.
The Argentine goalkeeper had proved himself an able deputy to Hugo Lloris after arriving from Southampton in the summer of 2017. However, that still didn’t stop Mourinho from signing Joe Hart in the summer.
“The Gazzaniga situation, with Hugo and Joe we believe that for the next couple of months we can do it with an academy goalkeeper, with a young English kid,” Mourinho said of the 28-year-old’s omission.
Gazzaniga hasn’t even made a match-day squad this season. A January departure appears inevitable, Liverpool and Everton have previously been linked.
The England international enters the final six months of his contract in January, and could be allowed to leave Tottenham for nothing if the right approach is made.
Rose was not included in Spurs’ Premier League and Europa League squads, and his only sporadic appearances this term have come for the club’s Under-23s.
This season has been quite difficult for Sanchez. He has not made a Premier League appearance since the middle of October and was overlooked for the 0-0 draw with Chelsea last weekend, with Joe Rodon instead thrown in for his full Premier League debut at Stamford Bridge.
Mourinho has, for reasons he hasn’t outlined, decided he can’t rely on the 24-year-old. And if the right offer was made in January, you sense the Portuguese wouldn’t be against letting the defender move on.
