Report: Tottenham now set to go back in for ‘unbelievable’ PL player in January, after failing on deadline day

According to reports, Tottenham Hotspur plans to challenge Bournemouth’s resolve by making a bid for defender Lloyd Kelly in January.

That’s according to talkSPORT, which claims that the Cherries turned down a £20 million deadline-day bid from Spurs earlier in the summer.

Tottenham is currently leading the Premier League after having a fantastic start to the season.

However, there are worries about Ange Postecoglou’s squad’s lack of depth, especially in defense.

At center back, Cristian Romero and Micky van de Ven have forged a remarkable alliance. Tottenham’s only backup choices right now are Eric Dier, Ashley Phillips, and Alfie Dorrington, who are still very young.

According to a recent report by journalist Dean Jones, the Spurs have already conducted “detailed checks” regarding their January acquisition of Lloyd Kelly.

It appears that they will make an effort to entice the Englishman to move to North London during the winter transfer window.

Tottenham set to revive Kelly interest

Spurs are reportedly prepared to rekindle their interest in Kelly after their deadline-day bid for the defender failed, according to TalkSPORT.

According to the source, Tottenham’s £20 million bid was rejected in the last moments of the summer transfer window.

Spurs continue to have a top priority for the 25-year-old as Postecolgou looks to strengthen his defense.

Nevertheless, Bournemouth is hesitant to conduct business in January because they want to stay in the Premier League.

It has been reported that the Cherries would prefer to lose Kelly for nothing the following summer than to trade him in the middle of the season.

Kelly will only have six months left on his current contract at Vitality Stadium in January, which makes him a desirable option for Spurs.

Since Bournemouth’s return to the top flight, he has impressed, earning praise as a “unbelievable” defender.

If Tottenham wants to keep up their unexpected challenge for the Premier League title, they will need to strengthen their defense in January.

Romero or Van de Ven could get hurt, which would be bad news for their campaign because they don’t have good cover right now.

Kelly would undoubtedly meet Postecoglou’s requirements as a defender with good speed and outstanding ball-handling abilities.

However, Bournemouth will be hesitant to sell because they appear to be in a survival fight for the Premier League.
