Skipp and Llorente are the biggest winners of club’s transfer window

Skipp and Llorente are the biggest winners of club’s transfer window

Tottenham Hotspur have had another quiet transfer window in January.

Mauricio Pochettino is yet to have any new faces at Spurs despite numerous problems in the attacking department.

Son Heung-min has returned from the Asian Cup which allows Pochettino to have another option back at his disposal, but they are still lacking depth on the striking front following Harry Kane’s injury.

Mousa Dembele is the only player leaving the North London outfit and he is yet to be replaced, however, the outgoing could work in favour of other players.

The lack of recruitment for Spurs could allow others to shine. With that being said, let’s take a look at the two biggest winners as a result of Spurs’ quiet window.

Oliver Skipp

Spurs’ midfield seems to be lacking in depth by the day. Dembele’s departure, partnered by injuries to Dele Alli and Moussa Sissoko, mean Skipp is in certainly in contention to build on his game time so far.

The 18-year-old has made nine first-team appearances this year and with just Skipp, Harry Winks, Eric Dier and now Victor Wanyama available in the centre of the park, the lack of incomings could bode well for his development as he will surely build on the minutes he has already amounted.

Fernando Llorente

Due to Spurs not bringing in another striking option and Kane’s injury which looks set to leave him on the sidelines until March, means that Llorente is the only natural striker on their books.

The 33-year-old was unfortunate to score an own goal against Fulham in his first League start this season, but his confidence will be increased as a result of his goal in the Carabao Cup semi-final against Chelsea.

Being the only option, if he can continue to help to put the ball in the back of the net, Pochettino will surely continue to pick him, meaning he can get back to regular football and help his side towards guaranteeing Champions League football.
