Tottenham Hotspur are planning for the upcoming January departures of Yves Bissouma and Pape Sarr.
“Tottenham are keen on signing Leicester City’s Wilfried Ndidi, a former teammate of James Maddison, in January,” the Express reported on Saturday.
Spurs are on a winning streak under manager Enze Postecoglou. After 10 games, they have eight wins and two draws and are unbeaten in the Premier League (PL) so far. Maddison has been particularly impressive. After arriving in a Tottenham shirt in the summer transfer window, he immediately became a key part of the team‘s offense.
He was the type of player Tottenham had been craving. In addition to being the link in an attacking midfield position, Madsen has been able to create chances, play creatively, and make killer passes to crack opposing defenses. He took advantage of defensive breakdowns to help strikers like Son Heung-min score goals.
Naturally, the standings rose. Tottenham became one of the favorites to win the title early on in the season as they racked up points. They will be looking to consolidate their top spot in the January transfer window. They are reportedly targeting Ndidi.
However, Ndidi’s nationality is Nigerian. He is highly likely to feature in the upcoming 2023 CAF Africa Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast. Tottenham already have three players leaving the squad in January. Son Heung-min is leaving for the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup in Qatar. Bissouma and Saha are also set to leave for the 2023 CAF Africa Cup of Nations in Côte d’Ivoire.
Ndidi would likely fill a role that Spurs currently don’t have. Ndidi is a classic number six midfielder. He often plays as a center back and is very defensive, tackling and intercepting. However, he is not very good with his feet, which makes 토토사이트 him a liability in the buildup. He could be useful in situations where Spurs need to play a more defensive game.
He’s also a relatively cheap option. Ndidi has a contract with Leicester until June 2024. He hasn”t signed a new contract yet. If he plans to leave the club in the January transfer window, he could be available on the cheap.
