Tottenham: Dean Jones cites ‘list’ of possible targets

Tottenham: Dean Jones cites ‘list’ of possible targets -Follow up

Tottenham Hotspur have a ‘list’ of possible targets to pursue should Japhet Tanganga leave the club, according to transfer insider Dean Jones. 

The lowdown: Tanganga exit links

A product of the youth system at Spurs, the 23-year-old is currently a one-club man after coming through the ranks in north London.

The England youth international has made 43 appearances for the Lilywhites, taking his overall tally to 121 outings for the club across all levels.

However, seeming unlikely to feature prominently under Antonio Conte having failed to get a game so far this season, Tanganga has been linked with AS Roma, Inter Milan and AC Milan recently, and it has been suggested that there are already replacements lined up should he move on…

The latest: Spurs’ ‘list’ of targets

Speaking to GiveMeSport, Jones has claimed that Tottenham already have their options in mind to come in for Tanganga if his exit from N17 is sanctioned.

The Eurosport journalist said: “They’ve got a list of names they’re willing to go for, but I don’t think they will go for it if Tanganga doesn’t leave, that’s my understanding anyway.”

The verdict: Numbers needed

Even if Tanganga leaves, Conte would still have Eric Dier, Ben Davies, Cristian Romero, Clement Lenglet and Davinson Sanchez as centre-back options. However, with the Italian manager almost exclusively utilising variants of a 3-4-3 formation, there is a requirement for considerable depth in the centre of defence.

As such, Tottenham have been linked with the likes of Trevoh Chalobah, Pau Torres and Rodrigo Becao in recent weeks, although those all now appear to be difficult to complete for various reasons.

Spurs fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the season against Man City?

Whether or not Tanganga – who was hailed as ‘really special’ by Gary Neville – leaves Spurs, it remains possible that they could welcome more incomings into the ranks as Fabio Paratici continues to pursue attacking reinforcements in the shape of Adama Traore, Anthony Gordon and Ruslan Malinovskyi.

The identities of the players who are on the aforementioned list is unclear, although it makes for a fascinating end to the transfer window for Tottenham.
