Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has around £50m to spend this January should he so wish, according to the Telegraph.
They report that with Tottenham looking for a replacement for Fernando Llorente even before the injury to Harry Kane, money is there for Pochettino to spend.
They claim that Liverpool fringe man Divock Origi is among the list of players being considered, as well as Championship players Jay Rodriguez of West Brom and Hull’s Jarrod Bowen.
But there is a bigger budget available to Pochettino if he wants a backup hitman, or midfield reinforcements in light of Mousa Dembele’s departure to China.
With many Tottenham fans fearing that their team will once more be quiet in the transfer market, the news that there is money to spend to bring in a significant reinforcements this month will be a welcome boost.
Daniel Levy will always negotiate the best possible deal – he certainly won’t be paying over the odds in the inflated January market – but if there is value to be had, Pochettino will be free to snap it up.
If another Lucas Moura-style deal comes up and can ease the burden on Spurs’ depleted squad, their fans would be pleased if they can get involved.
