Spurs linked to more than 30 players



The press would have you believe that Spurs are trying to sign every player we look at, which is not the case of course. Just take a look at some of the players we were linked with this window even though Mauricio Pochettino made it clear we would only sign someone if a special player became available, obviously at the right price.

Players Spurs were linked to in January
  1. Isco - 24 attacking midfield
  2. Leandro Paredes - 22 defensive midfield
  3. Ozancan Kokcu - 18 attacking midfield
  4. Ryan Sessegnon - 16 left-back
  5. Wilfried Zaha - 24 right wing
  6. Jay Rodriguez - 27 left wing
  7. Adam Lallana - 28 attacking midfield
  8. Andrea Ranocchia - 28 centre-back
  9. Youri Tielemans - 19 central midfield
  10. Luke Shaw - 21 left-back
  11. Sebastian Driussi - 20 striker
  12. Jacob Murphy - 21 right wing
  13. Mark Uth - 25 striker
  14. Sandro Ramirez - 21 striker
  15. Federico Bernardeschi - 22 right wing
  16. Ross Barkley - 23 attacking midfield
  17. Nico Gaitan - 28 attacking midfield
  18. Calvin Tshilumba - 17 striker
  19. Steven N'Zonzi - 28 defensive midfield
  20. Julian Brandt - 20 left midfield
  21. Bruma - 22 left wing
  22. Jordan Pickford - 22 goalkeeper
  23. Matthew Knox - 17 striker
  24. Moussa Marega - 25 secondary striker
  25. Leo Da Silva Lopes - 18 central midfield
  26. Franck Kessie - 20 defensive midfield
  27. Marc Cucurella - 18 left-back
  28. Riechedly Bazoer - 20 central midfield
  29. Max Meyer - 21 attacking midfield
  30. Javier Hernandez - 28 striker
  31. Marcelo Brozovic - 24 central midfield
  32. Riyad Mahrez - 25 right wing
  33. Daniel Sturridge - 27 striker
That list is by no means complete, in fact nowhere near it. For once it was a window where the fans were calm, there was no expectation so no disappointment. In fact all the top teams, Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool didn't sign anyone and North London rivals Arsenal only signed a non-league youngster.

Fewer transfers are being conducted in the winter window because teams don't want to have to replace players mid-season and as for ourselves, it takes a new signing too long to adjust to our game to make them of much use. The club might as well wait until the summer when the same players will be cheaper anyway.

There is little benefit to us loaning players we might get back because you have to be able to budget for wages and you can't loan out a player, fill his position and then have him back because clubs then know you have to sell and that makes it a buyers market, minimising the price. Hence our loan deals are where there is a clause triggered after a set number of games that makes it compulsory for the other club to buy them.
