Tottenham Hotspur are ready to make a January swoop for Aurelien Tchouameni by weighing up a €45 million offer for the midfielder.

According to Calciomercatoweb.it, Tottenham Hotspur have set their sights on a January move for Aurelien Tchouameni. The club’s technical director Fabio Paratici is keen on shoring up his team’s midfield options, with the AS Monaco starlet emerging as an ideal option.

Spurs are believed to be weighing up a bid of €45 million to secure the services of Tchouameni in the upcoming January transfer window. Monaco, though, value the player at around €65 million, while the club may also face stiff competition from Premier League rivals Chelsea and Manchester United.

The Frenchman, after all, has become one of the hottest midfield prospects in Europe after enjoying his professional breakthrough under Niko Kovac last season. He was a central figure to the club’s third-place finish in the league and the midfielder has continued to impress the onlookers in the new campaign.

Tchouameni was even-handed his French debut by Didier Deschamps in September, with the youngster following up to win the UEFA Nations League earlier this month. His rapid rise to prominence has now put Tottenham, as well as other European giants on red alert.

The Lilywhites have lacked variety in their midfield unit this season, as the trifecta of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Harry Winks and Oliver Skipp offer similar qualities in the middle of the park. As a result, the club has lacked that dynamic, creative presence, especially with Tanguy Ndombele and Giovani Lo Celso struggling with both form and fitness.

Tottenham are already expected to offload Harry Winks in January, with the Englishman being linked with a potential move to Everton. Even Ndombele is now being subjected to a move away from North London.

Their potential departure could open up the space for Tchouameni to become a first-team regular at the club, during the second half of the campaign. However, it remains to be seen whether the Frenchman would prefer a move to Spurs, given their mediocrity in the past couple of seasons.

The Lilywhites are currently playing in the UEFA Conference League and it appears unlikely that they will compete for the top four places anytime soon. Moreover, their proposed €45 million falls short of Monaco’s valuation as well, so it will only be a surprise to see Tchouameni joining Spurs anytime soon.

    Yeah, yeah, yeah, and £70m for Vlahovic, another £40m for a left footed centre back and God knows how much for an attacking midfielder to replace Eriksen. There is more chance of he’ll freezing over than Levy spending that kind of cash, unless he sells Kane of course, every spend Levys had has been offset by sales of our best players. Get these parasites out of our club.

      What nonsense, we have spent that sort of money on a number of players…. please tell me which sale of our “best” players was used to fund that?

        Yes and they all turned out brilliant oh wait they didn’t. Sanchez at the back, romerao at the back, ndombele in midfield along with le celso either not fit, injured or just light weight. Rubbish rubbish rubbish thats all we buy expensive rubbish. From cl finalists to 7th place in the league thats some plan along with the second most expensive season tickets in the league if not in Europe. Go ahead defend enic after all in 20 yrs look at the trophies they have won.
