Tottenham are being linked with a January move for Diego Perotti, suggest The Mirror among many.
Perotti is primarily a winger or occasional attacking midfielder, the £8 million estimation would be a reasonable amount for Daniel Levy to afford, as an attempt in increasing Spurs relatively poor goal rate this season so far.
The Argentine international could also be used as backup as progression in the Europa League and the additional fixtures incurred may need cover for AVB’s first choice wingers. The player has also confirmed his interest in moving to Spurs this January:
Definitely, a transfer in the January market is possible”
Another possibility according to The Guardian, is a move for Giuseppe Rossi from Fiorentina. Rossi is back to top form this season and highly likely to be a key member of Italy’s squad in next year’s World Cup.
One problem that Spurs have is getting Roberto Soldado to score goals. Would the addition of another foreign striker guarantee a solution to this? Perhaps the supply to Soldado needs to be improved, in which instance a move for Perotti might make more sense.
Tottenham’s other burning issue, has been the burden of integrating so many new signings into the first team squad. Would adding more fresh faces to the mix aid AVB, or add to his workload?
