Tottenham told they can’t have this player despite him being on a free

Tottenham Hotspur will surely be looking to strengthen their midfield in January, especially with the current injuries running through the squad.

Spurs became the first Premier League club ever to not buy a single player in the summer transfer window, and many have them tipped to follow suit come the winter too.

However, injuries to Mousa Dembele and Victor Wanyama, as well as questions over how long they will be at the club, maybe change this.

Eric Dier is also now out after having surgery to remove his appendix, leaving Tottenham pretty light in the centre of the park.

Spurs played Oliver Skipp and Moussa Sissoko as their two holding midfielders last time out against Burnley.

One man they have been linked with is Adrien Rabiot from PSG, a player whose contract runs out in the summer (Guardian).

However, the latest report from Le10 Sport claims that Tottenham have been told Rabiot does not want to join them (as reported by Sport Witness).

Yahoo Sport interviewed the PSG Sporting Director who claimed Rabiot would be leaving on a free in the summer at this stage.

Antero Henrique said: “At this point, no. It was a decision made by the club following a meeting I had with the player.

“The player informed me that he would not sign a contract and that he wanted to leave the club by being free at the end of the season, ie at the end of his contract.

“For the player, this will have a very clear consequence: he will remain on the bench for an indefinite period.

“I cannot guarantee that Adrien (Rabiot) will finish the season with us.”
