Tottenham transfer update: Where can Big Ange take Spurs this season?

Tottenham are right in the mix to qualify for the Champions League and their dealings in the January transfer window could be crucial.

Ange Postecoglou has impressed as head coach since taking the reins ahead of the new season, with Spurs fifth in the standings after 21 games played.

Only goal difference is keeping them out of the top four and a strong second half of the season could see them force their way in.

Tottenham can be backed at 2.20 to qualify for the Champions League and Postecoglou identified the transfer window as a crucial time.

Significant signings have already been made, with two top players arriving, and there is a good chance more will be on the way before the window slams shuts.

Signings so far

Postecoglou has managed to bring in two players so far, with Timo Werner and Radu Dragusin both arriving.

Dragusin, who is a Romania international defender, arrived from Italian Serie A side Genoa in a deal worth £25million.

Germany international forward Werner has signed on loan for the rest of the season from Bundesliga side RB Leipzig, having previously played in England for Chelsea.

Timo Werner

Werner is a shrewd bit of business by Tottenham and the forward will add another dimension to their attack.

The fact that it is a loan deal for the rest of the season means it is a low-risk signing and one that could bring huge rewards.

Werner struggled during his time at Chelsea, but that is not to say Postecoglou cannot get the very best out of him.

The German has not been brought in to score heaps of goals, but with his pace he can terrorise opposition defences and create chances.

He already has one assist to his name after making his debut in the 2-2 draw against Manchester United.

Radu Dragusin

Postecoglou put a new central defender high on his wanted list heading into the transfer window and landed his man early.

Dragusin has penned a contract until 2030 and looks to be another great bit of business for Spurs.

Only time will tell if that turns out to be the case, but the 21-year-old has experience and all the attributes to be a success in the Premier League.

Dragusin is a no-nonsense, strong, central defender who clears his lines and is very good a set-pieces at both ends of the pitch.

The Romanian is a confident, quick defender and is also comfortable on the ball. Just what Tottenham need.

Who could be next?

There is likely to be more transfer activity before the window closes and Club Brugge forward Antonio Nusa is on the radar.

Tottenham are said to be in talks regarding a move for the 18-year-old. However, even if a deal is done, the youngster is unlikely to make an impact this season.

There is a suggestion that he will be loaned straight back to Brugge for the rest of the campaign.

Tottenham are also keen on Chelsea midfielder Connor Gallagher, but could be fighting a losing battle in their attempts to sign him this month.

The Blues are refusing to sell the 23-year-old for now and Spurs may well have to wait until next summer to make their move.

Hopes for the season

Whatever happens over the remainder of the transfer window, Tottenham have a squad that is capable of securing Champions League football.

That will be the main goal and all connected with the club will be more than happy if they achieve this.

Tottenham are five points behind leaders Liverpool, having played a game more and a title tilt looks to be just out of reach.

Spurs are 29.00 to win the title.
