Ange Postecoglou could be handed a transfer blow despite confirmed Spurs star contract

A transfer blow could be dealt to Ange Postecoglou even though Destiny Udogie’s contract is approved.

When Sarr and Bissouma depart for the AFCON in January, Tottenham may only have three senior first-team midfield players.

Barcelona is keen to get Giovani Lo Celso from Tottenham during the January transfer window in an effort to make up for Gavi’s departure, according to manager Xavi. The Argentine midfielder is the top target for the Spanish squad in the winter transfer window.

Lo Celso was a priority target for Xavi in the summer, but Tottenham and the player wanted him to stay. With just 18 months left on his current contract, the Spurs must now make a significant choice that will affect his long-term prospects. But, the North London team is unwilling to sell anytime soon, particularly because they will be missing Pape Matar Sarr and Yves Bissouma to the Africa Cup of Nations the following month.

This means that the team’s senior midfielders are now limited to Lo Celso, Pierre-Emile Højbjerg, and Oliver Skipp, according to manager Ange Postecoglou. It is anticipated that Rodrigo Bentancur will return in late January 2024, having been out injured. In recent weeks, the 27-year-old Lo Celso has started four of the last five games for Spurs, assuming a more significant position in the team’s operations.

In other good news, Spurs have confirmed left-back Destiny Udogie has signed a new long-term contract at the club to reflect his status as one of the league’s most exciting full-backs. It remains to be seen how far Barcelona will go to get their man.

The left-back from Italy has agreed to a lucrative contract that will keep him at Spurs through 2030. Udogie, who has started 14 of his 16 Premier League games this year, may now get a substantial salary increase as Tottenham looks to safeguard their valuable asset. Last weekend, they defeated Newcastle United 4-1 in the Premier League, and he scored his first goal for the team.
