Tottenham Hotspur will be hoping that Dele Alli and Harry Kane’s absence doesn’t have too much of a negative affect on how their season pans out, with a top four place still up for grabs.
Daniel Levy failed to spend a single penny back in the summer transfer window as Mauricio Pochettino was forced to make do with the players that were already at his disposal.
Although, this month could be a whole different story, as according to The Sun, Tottenham are lining up a bargain £20 million bid for Adrien Rabiot with Daniel Levy ready to loosen the purse strings.
Of course, Levy should receive lots of praise for helping transform the club over the years, but securing a cut-price deal for Rabiot would see him reach hero status.
The French international is out of contract at the Parc des Princes in the summer and has made it clear that he will not sign a new deal. So, PSG would rather sell the 23-year-old for a bargain £20 million than allow him to leave on a free at the end of the current campaign.
Rabiot has established himself as one of the most promising midfielders in world football over the past season or so at Paris Saint-Germain. His passing and tackling ability in the middle of the park makes him a valuable asset for any top European side to have, with experience on the international stage and in the Champions League.
Spurs waved goodbye to Mousa Dembele earlier on this month, so they desperately need to bring in a replacement before the January transfer window shuts.
So, Levy can reach hero status if he manages to secure a deal for the midfielder, as £20 million would be an absolute steal for one of the most talented young midfielders in world football. He is the kind of player that Spurs have been crying out for in recent times, as a top-tier player who has the ability to take their midfield to the next level.
This would be a big sign of intent from Levy, which would be sure to excite supporters. A £20 million deal is eye-catching enough, considering he’s currently valued at £45 million (by Transfermarkt).Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
