Which transfer-listed Tottenham players should Man City go for in January?
The Football Manc Cave is looking at the rumour regarding some Tottenham Hotspur players apparently being put on the transfer list in January. Some may spark interest from Man City
According to the Daily Mail, Pochettino is understandably not happy with his squad’s performances and is supposedly going to be acting on this in January when he releases some of his squad. It’s being referred to as a ‘mid-season clear out.’
Players rumoured to be on his list include; Eric Dier, Christian Eriksen, Danny Rose, Serge Aurier and Victor Wanyama. If this is true, these players will have to start looking at other options now. It may even affect some of their attitudes and performances but other teams should start to analyse this news.
One club that could use this to their advantage is Man City…
Man City seem to be having problems at the back so signing the 25-year-old may help. He’s known as a defensive midfielder but is also comfortable as a centre back and a right back. This could give Pep Guardiola’s players a little bit of relief with injuries at the back and fewer options are proving difficult.
Players like Rodri who have potential to attack aren’t getting that chance right now because they’re being played in defensive positions. Bringing someone like Dier in could be tactical.
The 29-year-old left-back can also play left midfield, so he is another option to give some relief at the back and also to pick up a defensive midfield position. Pep Guardiola also appreciates players who can alternate in position, it’s something he tries to train and use in case his squad ever picks up injuries.
The 26 year old right back can also offer help in a left back position and at centre back. He’s another player that would give the Man City defence some hope. He also could be a helping hand to Kyle Walker, as Guardiola often substitutes his right back in the later stages of games. Aurier could be the man to replace Walker in the future.
