Report: Tottenham now offered chance to sign ‘world-class’ forward in January, but there’s a problem

Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte has plenty to think about before the Premier League restarts next week.

Not only will he sweating over the fitness of some of his key players, the transfer window is set to re-open once again.

A report from the Daily Mail has provided an update on a few of Tottenham’s proposed targets.

Conte and Fabio Paratici have recruited very well since arriving at the club.

They’ve used their extensive knowledge of Italian football to significantly improve Tottenham’s squad.

Conte has rarely compromised from players that he really wants, and so far, that approach has paid off.

The Daily Mail believe that Tottenham have been offered the chance to sign Barcelona forward Memphis Depay in January.

The Dutch international has barely played in La Liga this season.

The arrival of Robert Lewandowski has seen him fall down the pecking order under Xavi.

With Conte desperate to add another attacker to his ranks, Depay would certainly fit the bill.

The report suggests that Spurs will ‘monitor what they consider a difficult market’.

Depay has been linked with both north London clubs in recent days.

Arsenal are considering the ‘world-class’ forward as a short-term alternative to the injured Gabriel Jesus.

Tottenham were interested in Depay in the summer, but never pulled the trigger on an official bid.

And the Daily Mail also believe Spurs still aren’t completely convinced by Depay, saying a move is ‘considered unlikely’.

Richarlison has already returned to Tottenham after picking up an injury with Brazil.

A separate Daily Mail report suggests he could be out for as long as six weeks.

Conte may decide that he wants to bring in another forward if the 25-year-old’s fitness doesn’t improve as quickly as expected.

Tottenham being offered the chance to sign Depay could end up being a blessing in disguise if that ends up being the case.
