Tottenham Hotspur failed to secure a positive result against Liverpool yesterday as they were beaten 2-1 at Wembley Stadium.
The Lilywhites will have their sights set on securing a Champions League place after a drop in form recently, with the Premier League title slipping away. And, to make matters worse, it looks as if Spurs are behind in the race for a reported target, as according to the Express, Liverpool are ahead of Tottenham in the race for Nicolo Barella.
Liverpool are leading Tottenham in the race for Nicolo Barella.
Tottenham are keen to do business in January after such a disappointing summer transfer window, but Jurgen Klopp has been keeping a close eye on the Italian and is confident about landing him.
The midfielder is one of the hottest prospects in the whole of European football and could definitely star in the Premier League at some point in the future.
Indeed, Spurs will be gutted that they’re behind Liverpool in the race for the midfielder after tasting defeat against the Reds yesterday.
However, they’ll now turn their attention to getting back to winning ways after two consecutive defeats.
