Ange not messing around: Spurs eyeing moves to sign three new players; may cost more than £150m

The club appear keen to strengthen their credentials as genuine contenders under Ange Postecoglou.

Tottenham Hotspur are thought to be eyeing an ambitious swoop for three players as they look to lay look to go from strength to strength under Ange Postecoglou.

Latest Tottenham news…

Under the direction of manager Ange Postecoglou this season, Spurs have yet to drop a Premier League game in their first eight games, winning six times and drawing twice.

Yves Bissouma was adjudged to have committed an act of simulation in the dying minutes of the first half and subsequently received a second yellow card, making Luton the latest team to lose against Tottenham on Saturday, despite the visitors playing the entire second half with ten men.

In spite of being a target for both Spurs and West Ham United during the summer transfer window, Football Insider claims that both clubs may suffer a setback in their pursuit of Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher. Gallagher may begin negotiations for a new contract at Stamford Bridge.

Gallagher’s deal at the Blues is slated to expire in 2025, but given the England international’s revival under former Lilywhites manager Mauricio Pochettino, Tottenham may need to look elsewhere. According to recent Turkish sources, Tottenham dispatched scouts to see Galatasaray star Kerem Akturkoglu play alongside teammates Victor Nelsson and Sacha Boey at Old Trafford.

Ivan Perisic, a seasoned defender for Tottenham, is rumored to have reached an agreement with previous team Hadjuk Split regarding a trip back to his own country in January. Due to his catastrophic ACL injury, Perisic is now sidelined and isn’t likely to return to the field for his current team. He could, however, transfer in the January transfer window.

Latest Tottenham transfer news: Mikel Merino, Victor Osimhen and Edmond Tapsoba

According to Spanish media reports, Tottenham is interested in Real Sociedad midfielder Mikel Merino and may try to use him alongside James Maddison and Bissouma in the engine room as early as next summer.

Victor Osimhen of Napoli and Edmond Tapsoba of Bayer Leverkusen have also been mentioned as two additional players who might join the team. However, the outlet claims that they could cost more than €170 million (£147 million), so this could exceed the £150 million threshold if Merino’s potential fee is also taken into account.

Given his 64 goals and 15 assists in 110 games for Napoli in all competitions, Osimhen is undoubtedly the one of the three rumored signings that grabs the most attention.

According to WhoScored, Real Sociedad midfielder Merino’s performances on the field for club and nation in 2023–24 earned him an average match rating of 7.12/10, highlighting his ability to be a dependable and consistent performer in the middle of the park.

It might be an exciting 12 months on the transfer market as the 27-year-old has recovered approximately 6.5 balls per game for Real Sociedad in La Liga, demonstrating his capacity to effectively participate in the gritty work in midfield when necessary, according to Sofascore.
