Tottenham’s ‘killer trio’ confirmed, but who are they?
There’s blood in the water at Tottenham in the English Premier League (EPL). We’ve compiled a list of the three “killers” Tottenham will be looking to sell in the winter transfer window. These aren’t your typical killers. This is a direct order from Spurs chairman Daniel Levy. In fact, the parting of the ways has been finalized.
“Levy has created an exit route for three Tottenham players,” says the UK’s Express. Levy’s top priority for January is for the club to lose weight,” the Express reported.
Eric Dier, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, and Jed Spence are the three players whose names appear in the murder book. Dier is a former Tottenham defender, while Hojbjerg was a key midfielder under Antonio Conte. Spence is a young 23-year-old defender. They have one thing in common: they have lost the trust of Tottenham manager Enze Postecoglou.
“Dier has agreed a move to Bayern Munich,” the outlet reports. Dier could not fit into Postecoglou’s project. Bayern Munich coach Thomas Tuchel is very interested in Dier and the deal will be finalized with a small transfer fee.”
As for Spence, who hasn’t found a place after returning from a loan spell at Leeds United, “He’s a very high risk to leave. He was signed when Conte was manager, but he didn’t catch Conte’s eye and was loaned out to Leeds United this season.”
According to the outlet, the player who is most likely to part ways is Hojbjerg. He wants it, the team wants it, and the team wants it.
“Hojbjerg’s future is more certain than Dyer and Spence’s. He was only a candidate under Postecoglou, but if he goes to another club, he will have a chance to start. Italian clubs Juventus and Napoli have been linked with Hojbjerg. Fulham in England are also interested in him. The transfer fee is expected to be around £35 million ($58.7 billion).”
