Three Tottenham players who could leave in January amid Ange Postecoglou transfer plea

The Lilywhites will be keen to bolster certain areas as the January window fast approaches

Ange Postecoglou, whose squad’s depth is still being tested, will be getting ready to make a pitch to owner Daniel Levy regarding January signings. The injury to James Maddison, Micky van de Ven, Rodrigo Bentancur, and other players has caused the Lilywhites to drop from their previous table-of-the-table position to once again contend for UEFA Champions League spots.

It’s evident that many have concerns about their futures and must raise essential finances. Spurs have not been able to identify a worthy successor for the team’s all-time top scorer, even with the departure of captain and star Harry Kane shortly before the summer transfer window closed.

So which players are facing the axe as the festive period prepares to swing into action, football.londonanalyses the names who manager Postecoglou could be keen to move on in the weeks to come over January…

Hugo Lloris

With goalkeeper Guglielmo Vicario seemingly solidifying himself as the club’s number one ever since his arrival in the summer, Hugo Lloris has not had a sniff after his poor showings across the whole of the 2022/23 campaign for the club.

Said to be attracting attention from the likes of clubs in Italy, Lloris looks likely to once again attempt to push through a January switch given he is yet to play a single minute of football under the former Celtic boss.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg has only started three Premier League games for Spurs this year. Given that he is still relatively young, Levy may try to take advantage of a player who is anxious to get more playing time as he approaches a critical juncture in his career.

Even though there have been a lot of familiar individuals missing from the Lilywhites matchday squad lately, it appears that Hojbjerg has lost some faith in Yves Bissouma and Pape Matar Sarr’s ability to play centrally during the past six to eight months.

Eric Dier

Eric Dier has only started one Premier League game this season, so it’s unclear where his future will likely lead him.Dier, who is said to be of interest to Galatasaray, hasn’t even been able to go through the door because of Van de Ven’s injury, which says volumes about him.

Even if the 29-year-old Three Lions international still has a lot of football left in him, it doesn’t seem probable that he will sit patiently on the Tottenham substitutes bench as each week goes by, regardless of whether a transfer overseas is called upon.
