Alasdair Gold claims Spurs are still looking at potential late January signings

Alasdair Gold’s latest piece for Football.London suggests Tottenham Hotspur are exploring options to make more signings in January, beyond the reportedly imminent arrival of Pedro Porro from Sporting Lisbon.

It’s been a highly frustrating month for Tottenham fans so far. Despite a squad crying out for reinforcements, it wasn’t until January 25 that the club finally announced their first signing of the transfer window, with Arnaut Danjuma joining on loan from Villarreal (Sky Sports).

Spurs have seemingly spent most of this month trying to negotiate a deal for Sporting Lisbon’s Pedro Porro. That move is expected to be concluded very soon according to Fabrizio Romano, with the final details being discussed between the two clubs.

It is thought Spurs will not stop there though, and that there could be more transfer activity into the final days of the transfer window. That’s according to Gold, who gives an insight into what to expect before the month is out.

Gold said: “Tottenham are not necessarily done there and it is understood they will continue to look for any late opportunities that arise to bring forward any of their summer plans for new centre-backs, a central midfielder as well as another front man.

“Lucas Moura remains out injured… with no end yet in sight for that problem as his contract reaches its last six months, and Danjuma’s arrival could see Bryan Gil seek to be loaned out for game time.

“If Conte has neither the Brazilian nor Spaniard available, Spurs could be forced to bring in yet another attacker.”

I definitely think we need to focus on getting a new centre-back this month. If we can get Porro and someone like Milan Skriniar, our defence would be totally transformed and a huge problem would be almost solved immediately. As for attackers, as Gold says, we only need more if others leave first.
