According to a report by Football.London, Tottenham Hotspur are considering making moves for Norwich ace Max Aarons and West Brom defender Nathan Ferguson this month but face issues in getting both deals over the line.
The report claims that neither Aarons nor Ferguson are likely to be sold this month as both players are extremely important to their respective clubs.
While Norwich attempt to retain their Premier League status, West Brom are fighting for promotion to the Premier League and so it is suggested that neither club is planning on selling any of their best players halfway into the season.
Express Sport claims that Jose Mourinho is keen on signing a right back to replace Kyle Walker-Peters who Spurs are said to be keen on offloading this month with Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson having already declared his interest in the England Under-21 international (Football.London).
It is revealed that one of the reasons for the club’s pursuit of Aarons and Ferguson is to remain on the right side of the homegrown player rules. However, it is revealed that neither deal is likely to be completed this window.

While there seems to be movement regarding strikers and central midfielders, it does look like we might have to wait till the summer to get a top right back in. I actually believe the full-back areas are our biggest weaknesses but it is better to wait to get the right player in rather than buying someone for the sake of it.
