Timo Werner, who reportedly turned down offers from Manchester United and Aston Villa, is about to make his formal Tottenham Hotspur debut.
Ange Postecoglou has not yet reinvested the rumored £100 million on a new number nine after offloading one of the top scorers in the world during the summer.
Even though Richarlison has been playing well lately, the Brazilian striker struggled with an injury earlier in the season, which compelled the Australian manager to use Son Heung-Min as a center back.
The North London team hasn’t wasted any time with the January window open, as Werner’s signing appears to be on the horizon.
According to David Ornstein, the 27-year-old will join on a temporary loan till the conclusion of the current campaign, with the option to buy for between €15 and €20 million.
Werner was being pursued by a number of Premier League teams, including Aston Villa, but he ultimately said yes to Tottenham, according to Football Insider.
The German has only scored twice in 14 games thus far, and he has found it difficult to replicate the goal-scoring form that initially earned him a transfer to Chelsea.
Spurs now have to get ready for this weekend’s crucial Premier League matchup at Old Trafford against Manchester United.
Tottenham Hotspur target Radu Dragusin makes transfer decision in blow for Napoli
Radu Dragusin, a defender for Genoa, has made the decision that he wants to move abroad and will not be joining Napoli. He has given Tottenham Hotspur or Bayern Munich preference in his decision.
A three-way race has been going on for Dragusin’s signature, and it is anticipated that he will leave Genoa in the coming days.
Tottenham seemed to be in the lead, but Napoli persisted in their pursuit of Dragusin, and Bayern Munich and Genoa have finally reached a deal.
Today, the Serie A team made multiple fresh attempts to convince Dragusin to sign and work out a deal.
But Dragusin has made the decision to leave Serie A and relocate overseas, according to Italian broadcaster Sky Italia (via Tutto Mercato).
Thus, Napoli’s chances of defeating Bayern Munich and Tottenham in Dragusin are essentially gone.
The defender now has to decide between Bayern Munich and Tottenham.
With agreements in place with Genoa, both teams must now persuade Dragusin to pick them.
In order to fulfill their requirement to acquire a center back during this month’s transfer window, Napoli is now anticipated to go elsewhere.
