Alasdair Gold has said that he expects Tottenham Hotspur to reignite their interest in Bournemouth centre-back Lloyd Kelly when the transfer window reopens in January.
It was reported by The Athletic on the morning of deadline day this summer that Spurs had made an offer of £20m for Kelly, which was turned down by Bournemouth.
The outlet explained that the Cherries were reluctant to let the defender leave so late in the transfer window since they did not have time to bring in a suitable replacement.
It was suggested by Matt Barlow in Daily Mail’s Q&A at the start of last week that Spurs could explore a move for Kelly once again in the winter since they are short of options at the back after Davinson Sanchez’s transfer to Galatasaray.
Is Lloyd Kelly a target for Tottenham?
It has subsequently been reported by Football Insider that the South Coast club could be forced to sell the centre-back on a cut-price deal as the player’s contract at the club runs out next summer and he has not shown an inclination to sign a new deal
Speaking about the Bournemouth defender, Gold said on his YouTube channel: “I think [Spurs will move for] Kelly because I could understand the logic behind that move. He is pacy. He has the homegrown status as well. I could maybe see that (in January).”
Spurs Web Opinion
I believe that Tottenham are more likely to pursue a right-sided centre-back to cover for Romero rather than another left-sided centre-back, with Ben Davies arguably capable of filling in for Micky van de Ven.
So, I suspect a move for Tosin Adarabioyo is more likely. If Spurs manage to offload Dier in January, then the club could perhaps look to sign both Lloyd Kelly and Adarabioyo.
