El Universal has reported that Tottenham Hotspur is preparing to bid for Sebastian Caceres, the center defender for Club America, when the transfer window opens in January.
Although Caceres has been a star in the Mexican top division for the past few years, it appears that the elite teams in Europe are more interested in him because of his recent exploits with the Uruguay national team.
The 24-year-old’s impressive performance in Uruguay’s 2-0 victory over Brazil during the international break delighted Ange Postecoglou’s team, which initially exposed Tottenham’s interest in him at the beginning of this week, according to Football Insider.
A few days ago, Record said that Club America is growing more and more resigned to the fact that Caceres will be going in January, naming Tottenham and Sevilla as the two teams interested in the midfielder.
Tottenham are preparing an offer for Caceres
El Universal is the most recent source to report on Tottenham’s interest, stating that the North London team’s desire to capture the defender is well known.
The Lilywhites are allegedly “preparing an offer” for Caceres, although neither the amount of the Premier League team’s bid nor the center-back’s valuation are disclosed in the story.
Given that Caceres lacks elite experience, signing him on the basis of his meagre international resume would be a risk. He is also almost a finished product at the age of 24, as opposed to a player with a lot of growth potential like Alejo Veliz.
Team News: Postecoglou confirms one player needs to be assessed ahead of Crystal Palace
At this afternoon’s press conference at Hotspur Way, Ange Postecoglou gave a team news update ahead of tomorrow night’s match against Crystal Palace.
After a recent 2-0 victory against Fulham, Postecoglou’s team in North London has amassed 23 points from nine Premier League games, going undefeated in his first full season as head coach.
Arsenal hosts struggling Sheffield United, while Tottenham hosts Manchester City, who will face Manchester United, to move five points clear atop the standings.
Spurs team news vs Crystal Palace
Yves Bissouma is back in action following his one-game suspension, but he still runs the risk of receiving a one-match ban if he receives a yellow card at Palace. If this happens, he will be unable to participate in the derby against Chelsea, which will mark Mauricio Pochettino’s first visit to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium since he was fired by Daniel Levy in 2019.
Palace has struggled to score goals lately, as evidenced by their one goal in their last four Premier League games.
As per regulation, the Spurs team’s availability to the media is disclosed prior to their matchup with Roy Hodgson’s team.
The Australian disclosed that Pape Matar Sarr, who was also substituted, has recovered from a brief sickness, and that Destiny Udogie, who was substituted against Fulham, would be evaluated prior to the game.
Charlie Eccleshare, a reporter, was informed by Postecoglou that “Pape is fine – bounced back 24 hours after the game.” a little unwell, but has good training. We’re still going to evaluate destiny.
“It’s fair to say that training teeters on the brink, and Davies took a sore one after missing Fulham with a knock. Everybody else has fared well.
