Tottenham Hotspur currently find themselves in a promising position in the race for a top-four spot, but they are facing competition from Arsenal and Chelsea.
The Lilywhites failed to spend a single penny back in the summer transfer window, so they must be looking to make amends by bringing in a number of players next month.
Although, with a number of players still failing to live up to expectations in North London, Daniel Levy will have one eye on offloading any dead weight. And, with the top-four race still wide open at this moment in time, a couple of January signings could make all the difference.
Therefore, Mauricio Pochettino won’t have have any more worries if Levy offloads this DUO in January…
Fernando Llorente was originally purchased as a back-up striker for Harry Kane, but he has failed miserably as he couldn’t even buy a goal at times last season. And, the current campaign hasn’t been any different as the Spaniard has found the back of the net just once in seven appearances in all competitions.
So, with a back-up striker for Kane being so important as Spurs head into a vital second half of the season, Levy simply has to offload Llorente to make room for a quality striker.
Georges-Kevin N’Koudou has gone under the radar in North London since joining the club as one of the most highly-rated wingers in the whole of Europe.
Indeed, the Frenchman spent the second half of last season on loan at fellow Premier League side Burnley, and he has only made one appearance since returning to Spurs in the summer.
So, with the likes of Erik Lamela, Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli, Lucas Moura and Heung-Min Son all ahead of him in the pecking order, Levy must bite the bullet and offload him in January.
