According to a report in The Express, Tottenham Hotspur are planning on strengthening their squad during the January transfer window and could look at four potential big-name targets.

A recent report by Football.London claimed that Tottenham are unlikely to sign new players next month unless they bring in transfer funds through player sales.

The Athletic’s David Ornstein has also seconded that claim, suggesting that Spurs do not have funds to spend big in January on the back of investing heavily in the summer.

However, The Express claim that the club could look to improve key areas of the squad including the defence as well as the forward line.

It is suggested that Milan Skriniar and Antonio Rudiger are both on Tottenham’s radar, with Mourinho looking to add to his options in central defence.

Further, it is claimed that Juventus’ Paulo Dybala could be made available on loan with Mourinho aware he needs another world class forward.

Additionally, the report says that Spurs could be tempted to make another offer for Arkadiusz Milik, with the striker’s price now having dropped to £15m compared to the £35m Napoli wanted for him in the summer.

Spurs Web Opinion

This report does not appear to have much truth in it and simply seems to be a case of the Express putting forward four names that we have been linked with over recent weeks. I suspect Mourinho will be keen on bolstering his options in central midfield more than he is in defence or upfront. Unless Sanchez leaves in January, I cannot see us signing another central defender.
