“Tottenham’s Transfer Shuffle: ‘Main Names’ Revealed on the Exit List as Postecoglou Shifts Focus”

According to a reporter, Giovani Lo Celso and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg may not make it to Tottenham Hotspur during the January transfer window.

Under Ange Postecoglou, the two midfield players’ futures are uncertain, and in recent weeks, there have been a number of contradictory statements made regarding them. Rudy Galetti is the most recent journalist to attempt to forecast what would transpire with them in January.

According to the Italian correspondent writing for Tribal Football, Lo Celso may go out on loan once more, and both he and Hojbjerg may end up in La Liga.

“Tottenham are already planning possible moves for the winter transfer window,” the SportItalia man said.

“On the exits list, the main names are Giovani Lo Celso and Pierre Hojbjerg. The chances of seeing them leave in January – towards Spain – are growing.

“For the Argentine midfielder, Tottenham are also open to evaluating the idea of a loan, while the eventual farewell of the Danish midfielder – Atletico Madrid are always interested – could open up some scenarios, including the possible assault on Conor Gallagher.”

Lo Celso has already spent some time on loan away from Tottenham at Villarreal. He was reintegrated by Postecoglou this summer, but injuries have limited his impact.

Hojbjerg, meanwhile, is believed to be keen on a new challenge after three-and-a-half seasons in north London.

The reference to Gallagher stretches back to the summer, when Tottenham tried late on to sign him from Chelsea. The Cobham graduate has since earned more gametime under Mauricio Pochettino than expected, though, and may prefer to renew his terms with Chelsea, which would force Spurs to look elsewhere.

Tottenham to focus on Jota rather than midfield replacements

Despite the prospect of Tottenham reducing their midfield depth by two, Galetti believes Postecoglou would prefer to invest in a new left-winger next.

“The priority of Postecoglou is to replace Ivan Perisic and Manor Solomon – both injured – on the left-side of the pitch,” Galetti continued in his column.

“To date, Spurs – among others – are monitoring Jota: after his sensational move to Al-Ittihad, coach Nuno, for the moment, doesn’t consider him an important player and this difficult situation could facilitate his transfer as early as January.”
