The Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern are eagerly anticipating an exciting January transfer window. With Mauricio Pochettino regularly making significant moves to improve his side in recent windows, there is an expectation that this year will be no different. Particularly given Tottenham’s recent mixed form, it could be a very exciting one for fans as the Argentine manager looks to turn the ship around.
It remains to be seen who Pochettino will look at in January, or indeed whether he will simply look to wait until next summer, but the Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern have been listing the players that they want their side to look at over the last few weeks. One name that keeps cropping up is Gareth Bale, and he’s a player that most fans would love to see in North London, it seems.
Our landlord recently polled Tottenham fans on that very topic, and a whopping 75% of fans responded positively, calling for their side to re-sign the Welsh winger that they sold to Real Madrid for a record-breaking fee a few years ago.
Bale – who is rated at £72 million by Transfer Markt – has, of course, had a tough spell lately in Spain, with injury and a lack of form causing issues for him in La Liga. That said, he’s still a very good player, and he’s evidently still a fan favourite in North London owing to his last spell in the Premier League with the Lilywhites.
A move still remains difficult, particularly in January, but Real Madrid – given Bale’s inconsistent form – could, feasibly, look to cash in on the Welshman soon. If that is the case, it’s clear that the Tottenham faithful want their side to sign him.
