Spurs bolstered their squad on deadline day with the additions of Rodrigo Bentancur and Dejan Kulusevski from Juventus, but it appears they were also exploring other last-minute opportunities.

What’s up with Spurs?

Well, manager Antonio Conte made it clear coming into the January window that he wanted new bodies to come through the door of the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium to help the club in their bid for a top four finish in the Premier League this season – securing Champions League qualification as a result.

So far only two new faces have arrived after previous moves by Adama Traore and Luis Diaz both failed, with Tanguy Ndombele, Giovani Lo Celso, Dele Alli and Bryan Gil all set to secure exits ahead of the 11 p.m. deadline.

This means Conte actually has less squad depth when Spurs entered the window, which certainly puts them in an interesting position in their battle against Manchester United, Arsenal and West Ham to finish in the top four.

With less than two hours remaining, it seems unlikely that any further additions will join the Juve duo in north London, but it looks like Fabio Paratici has at least done some investigating to see if they could bring the former Chelsea striker Morata at the club.

What did O’Rourke say about Morata?

When asked if Spurs could do more business, the reporter told GIVEMESPORT: “They asked about Alvaro Morata today. Never say never with Spurs.

Do Tottenham have a good window?

If they end up losing four first-team players and only replacing them with two knowing Conte wanted new additions, then you should probably say no.

Of course, January is always a difficult time to bring back your best goals and I’m sure the experienced Italian knows that, but he will also be well aware that achieving his best summer goals could also depend on Tottenham qualifying for the Champions League. .

It’s something that’s far from guaranteed at the moment when you see how they’ve compared to Chelsea in the League Cup and FA Cup in recent weeks, and it could prove to be a critical decision not to. not do more in this window when it comes to their future.
