Tottenham Hotspur have made an incredible start to the 2020/21 season, sitting top of the Premier League table after ten games.
Head coach Jose Mousinho will be satisfied by the performances of his team, who have emerged as potential title contenders, however, that hasn’t erased the gossip columns when it comes to the prospect of further new recruits.
Here is the list of players, who have been linked with a move to Spurs since the summer transfer window shut.
10. Christian Eriksen
The former Spurs playmaker has been tipped to return to the club, only a year on from his move to Inter Milan.
The 28-year-old has struggled to find regular playing time under Antonio Conte at the San Siro, who doesn’t appear to need a player with the Dane’s skill set in his 3-4-3 system, and often turns to others from the bench when in need of game-changing interventions.
According to The Athletic the Serie A giants won’t stand in his way if he wants to move elsewhere, in January while Italian outlet Calciomercato report a deal could potentially be struck to bring Eriksen back to north London.
9. Milan Skriniar
Tottenham were heavily linked with signing the Inter Milan centre-half over the summer, and were reportedly in talks. But a deal couldn’t be struck.
Speculation has since re-emerged that Tottenham could go back for Skriniar in January, with The Athletic claiming they’d be open to doing a transfer if a well-priced deal or loan could be agreed upon.
But, Spurs subsequently went and bolstered Mourinho’s defensive options with Joe Rodon from Swansea.
8. Marcel Sabitzer
The RB Leipzig star. who was outstanding against Spurs with two goals in the Champions League last season, is reported to have been on chief scout Steve Hitchen’s radar even since that 4-0 aggregate victory in the Round of 16.
SportBILD (via Sport Witness) claim Mourinho’s side are “at the front of the queue” for his signature, but as with their other assets – Dayot Upamacano and Timo Werner before him – any negotiations are likely to wait until the summer.
