Alasdair Gold thinks Spurs will have ‘a proper look’ at PL star in January

Alasdair Gold has said that Tottenham Hotspur will consider making a move to sign Ivan Toney during the January transfer window.


Tottenham is reportedly planning a bid for Toney in the upcoming transfer window, according to multiple reports during the course of the summer. Toney is presently serving an eight-month FA ban for breaking betting regulations; the ban will expire in January.

The Times claimed a few weeks ago that Spurs and Arsenal are both considering a January transfer for the center-forward, who is reportedly valued at £80 million by Brentford.

Football Insider even said a few days ago that the Bees could seek an outrageous £100 million for their best player when the window reopens mid-season.

However, it was alleged that this evaluation had not put off Spurs, who plan on ‘assessing a potential January move’ for the 27-year-old.

Spurs and others will look at Ivan Toney in January

Gold has now confirmed that the Brentford man is indeed on Tottenham’s radar, backing the Lilywhites to have a ‘proper look’ at the player.

When asked if the North London club could make a move for Toney in January, the journalist said in a Q&A on Football London: “There’s certainly interest in the striker as there will be from plenty of clubs.

“I’d imagine Spurs are among those having a proper look in January. Toney returns from his ban against them so they’ll get a very close-up look!”

Tottenham do not tend to make £70m-plus signings and one can also argue that Toney is not an ideal fit for Postecoglou’s system. The Australian evidently prefers having a fluid frontline with forwards who can interchange positions rather than lining up with a traditional centre-forward.


‘He doesn’t have the talent’: Tottenham and Daniel Levy has agreed to show player the exit in next transfer window- report

Ange Postecoglou has given Tottenham Hotspur some much-needed ruthlessness on and off the field, leading to a fantastic and undefeated start to the Premier League season.

Despite moving club-record goal scorer Harry Kane to Bayern Munich this summer, the Lillywhites are in better shape than they have been in a long time. But now that other players have stepped up to fill the England captain’s shining shoes, Spurs are soaring.

Hugo Lloris’ lack of participation in the new period has demonstrated that it does not account for sentiment, and there are even rumors that Spurs may decide to end his contract with the team.

Meanwhile, even though the North London club are unable to buy any more reinforcements now that the transfer window is shut in England, they have reportedly agreed a deal to sell an out-of-favour defender.

What’s the latest Spurs transfer news?

Spurs had a prosperous summer in terms of incomings, welcoming players like James Maddison, who has contributed twice in goals and assists in four spectacular Premier League appearances for his new team.

According to reports, Daniel Levy and company are now focused on saying goodbye to players who are not part of Postecoglou’s plans for the current season.

One of those players, according to journalist Rudy Galetti, would probably be center back Davinson Sanchez, whose sale to Galatasaray is about to be finalized. According to Galetti, the specifics of a transfer price are now being addressed, and a complete agreement is anticipated soon.

“The transfer of Davinson Sanchez from Tottenham to Galatasaray is nearly complete. The transfer fee’s final elements are just being discussed; the whole agreement is soon to follow.

Given that the defender has only appeared once for Spurs in four Premier League games this season, it should come as no surprise that he is on the verge of leaving North London.

Should Spurs sell Davinson Sanchez?

Although Sanchez is no longer Spurs’ top choice, Postecoglou will only have access to Cristian Romero, Eric Dier, and Micky van de Ven as his senior center-back options until at least January without him. Ben Davies can fill that job thanks to his versatility, but the left-back may not have to fill it on a regular basis.

Sanchez’s departure can be viewed as a favorable one for all sides, despite the fact that the defender is currently 27 years old, provided Spurs are able to acquire a fair enough price and proceed to replace him in January.

After missing out on qualifying for Europe the previous season, the Lillywhites will hopefully have less dates to worry about, which will assist them avoid injuries to their backline.
