Perfect Romero cover, £14m goal-machine – Five dream Tottenham January transfer targets

Ange Postecoglou’s top five fantasy targets are examined in the most recent Tottenham transfer news before the January market opens.

Despite certain FFP constraints, Tottenham will be looking to strengthen a variety of positions during the January transfer window. The top goal is to sign a new defender, but Ange Postecoglou and Johan Lange should also aim to bolster their attacking and midfield options.

With injuries to James Maddison and Micky van de Ven in the same game, the Lilywhites have been severely impacted by injuries this season. Spurs suffered at first without the key pair, but they have since improved even though they have also lost Giovani Lo Celso and Rodrigo Bentancur to injuries.

Many players have already been connected to Spurs before January, as Postecoglou looks to prevent a Pedro Porro-style situation from happening again. Having said that, has examined five ideal additions that Postecoglou ought to make to the team within the January transfer window.

Jean-Clair Todibo

The football player Jean-Clair Todibo of Nice has been connected to a transfer to Tottenham.London is aware that negotiations have begun on a move. The France international can play in a high line because to his electrifying pace, which makes him the ideal Postecoglou center-back.

The 23-year-old’s aggressiveness is yet another important quality. While, like Romero, he is prone to receiving a red card, adding him would free Romero to continue playing at a high level without worrying about how Spurs would do without him.

Serhou Guirassy

Former Tottenham striker Harry Kane is understandably stealing all the headlines in the Bundesliga for his goals but close behind him in the charts is Stuttgart’s Serhou Guirassy. While Kane has 21 goals for Bayern Munich, Guirassy has already netted 17 times in league action this season.

The 27-year-old also has a €17million (£14.7million) release clause that becomes active in January and with captain Son Heung-min off to the Asia games, it would make sense, given the price, to try and tempt him with a move to north London.

Santiago Gimenez

Feyenoord star Santiago Gimenez is in impressive goal-scoring form in the Netherlands under former Spurs managerial target Arne Slot. From 16 games, he has scored 16 goals with goal contributions arriving in last four games in all competitions.

The 22-year-old has interest from Real Madrid and Spurs, although Feyenoord do not appear interested in selling their star striker with a lofty price tag of €100million (£87million) set for the winter window.

Radu Dragusin

Given the necessity for a center-back, Radu Dragusin of Genoa has been heavily linked to a transfer to Spurs, particularly in light of his agent’s most recent remarks on his future. The 21-year-old is reportedly among the center backs on the short list, along with Lloyd Kelly, Tosin Adarabioyo, and Todibo.

But according to rumors from Italy, he will try to gain leverage by signing a new deal at Genoa, with Premier League teams listed as potential suitors. He is still a quality defender, though, so it might be worthwhile to investigate the possibility of a trade if it arises.

Kalvin Phillips

Although signing Kalvin Phillips, a Manchester City misfit, wouldn’t be a flashy move, it would be a sensible and practical one. The midfielder should transfer to Spurs, maybe on loan at first, since he needs consistent playing time to play for England at Euro 2024.

With Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s January exit linked to Rodrigo Bentancur and the 28-year-old’s characteristics that Postecoglou loves, acquiring Phillips may be the ideal acquisition.
