Tottenham Hotspur have been dealt yet another injury blow in central midfield this week, as it was announced that Moussa Sissoko has undergone surgery on his knee.
Spurs claim that the midfield man will not even return to training until April, which comes as a huge blow to Jose Mourinho’s plans.
The special one is already without record signing Tanguy Ndombele after the Frenchman pulled up against Southampton on New Year’s Day.
Mourinho now has just Eric Dier, Harry Winks, and Oliver Skipp as out-and-out central midfielders, with the likes of Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli, and Giovani Lo Celso able to cover. Victor Wanyama seems to be out of favour in North London.
Charlie Eccleshare, Tottenham correspondent for The Athletic, has now claimed that his publication understands that Skipp could now stay at Spurs this month instead of going out on loan due to the Sissoko injury.
There is apparently a lot of interest surrounding the Spurs teenager both in England and abroad.
There’s lots of interest in England + abroad for Skipp, but with Sissoko out + Ndombele struggling for fitness he may be required to stay put.
