“Tottenham Targets Reigning Title Winner to Bolster Midfield: Will the Transfer Happen Before January?”

Joe Lee

Tottenham Hotspur are expected to add gasoline to their possible Premier League title assault in January by pursuing Fabian Ruiz from Paris Saint-Germain.

Ange Postecoglou has led Tottenham Hotspur to the top of the Premier League standings after 10 games. It has been an amazing turnaround in form for a team that ended outside of the European rankings last season. However, they may need to bolster their team in order to sustain their form throughout the season.

The January transfer window will give them the opportunity to do just that – and there are a couple of things they have in mind. For example, Postecoglou might benefit from having an upgrade at centre-forward compared to Richarlison, and more depth in defence (especially if Eric Dier leaves) and midfield.

Indeed, their midfield is a source of concern because two of its key players, Yves Bissouma and Pape Matar Sarr, are expected to be missing for the Africa Cup of Nations.

Furthermore, the fates of surviving players such as Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Giovani Lo Celso are being questioned in gossip columns.

Now, rumours in Ruiz’s home Spain claim that the PSG midfielder is a target for Tottenham ahead of the January transfer window to help cover the vacuum.

Ruiz is said to be considering a change of scenery after only starting three Ligue 1 matches so far this season. If the claims from Spain are to be believed, Tottenham might be able to provide him with a bigger platform.

It is alleged that Tottenham have identified him as the ideal partner to Bissouma in their engine room for the long term. At the age of 27, Ruiz is in what should be the prime of his career.

Ruiz could turn back on PSG

The former Napoli playmaker remains under contract in Paris until 2027. However, if Luis Enrique fails to offer him more prominence, he might turn his back on the reigning French champions – and it could be to lend his support to another potential title challenge in England.

For now, this seems to be speculation and Tottenham fans will be waiting to see if any sources closer to home suggest Ruiz could be on their radar.

But if he did turn out to be a target, his Champions League pedigree would make him an exciting option to think about incorporating into Postecoglou’s project.
