£50 million kitty
Tottenham reportedly have £50 million to spend in the January transfer window. The Telegraph has reported that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has put aside the amount for Mauricio Pochettino to use at his discretion if he wants to improve the Tottenham team at all this month.
A midfielder and striker are the most likely recruits with Tottenham struggling with injuries and lack of cover in both roles.
Mousa Dembele has finally left Tottenham Hotspur. As reported by The Guardian, the Belgian has joined Chinese Super League side Guangzhou R&F – despite it being reported for some time that Beijing Sinobo Guoan was his next destination.
He was out of contract at the end of the season and decided he did not want to remain in the Premier League.
Described as a ‘genius’ by Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino, Dembele will now hope to prolong his career in a lesser league.
Tottenham are reportedly considering a move for former Manchester United striker Giuseppe Rossi on a short-term deal.
The former Villarreal and Fiorentina forward has been training with the Red Devils as he hunts for a new team. Tuttotsport, as relayed by Football Italia, are suggesting Spurs could offer him a pay as you play deal to help cover for the absent Harry Kane.
