Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly already got one eye on the January transfer window as they struggle to kickstart their 2019/20 campaign.

Spurs made the Champions League Final at the end of last season, but have failed to kick on from that achievement and are now sinking domestically.

Tottenham are 14th in the Premier League after 12 games with just three wins and 14 points to their name from the opening months.

The North London club may be hoping that their achievements in Europe last season still carry enough weight to draw in some talented young players in January.

Calcio Mercato report that Spurs are readying a bid between 40 and 50 million Euros for Roma star, Lorenzo Pellegrini.

The 23-year-old has a contract at Roma until 2022, but has been out injured with a metatarsal fracture since September of this year.

While Spurs are said to be keen, Lorenzo apparently wants to stay at his boyhood club and Roma are interested in renewing his contract.

Spurs Web Opinion:

This all seems unlikely to me. Paying top price for an injured player who doesn’t want to leave his current club seems far from Levy’s usual methods. Not to mention the fact that Roma apparently don’t want to sell.
