“Ange Faces Spurs’ Injury Crisis: Bad News Keeps Piling Up”

Following Micky van de Ven’s injury against Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur will try to acquire a new left-sided center-back during the January transfer window, as reported by the Evening Standard.

The 4-1 loss to the Blues on Monday night saw the Netherlands international pulled out of the game in the first half due to a hamstring injury. Spurs are unsure of the extent of his absence, but they believe the summer acquisition may be sidelined for some time.

Consequently, they made an attempt to capture Lloyd Kelly, the center-back for Bournemouth, during the summer transfer window, and now he is a target.

With his contract expiring at the end of the current campaign, Kelly is believed to be available for a reduced sum, thus the Cherries are prepared for a new approach.

He has played in eight games for the failing squad this season in all competitions, and in January, he might be open to joining a side at the top of the Premier League standings.

Kelly is left-footed, therefore he can also play left-back. He is also likely to accept Tottenham’s roster status.

Getting him would also count toward the North London team’s domestic goal, and he is good enough to push his way into Spurs’ starting lineup.

Given how important the 22-year-old has been in center defense with Cristian Romero, Tottenham will suffer a great deal if Van van Ven is sidelined until the next year.

Along with the Bournemouth star, Spurs will have a few targets on their radar come January. The Argentina international is also expected to miss the next three games after receiving a red card on Monday, so they will have a new-look defense going forward.
