Tottenham transfer news: Could Mauricio Pochettino get two Championship stars in January? | Football | Sport

Spurs are riding high in the Premier League this season and battered Bournemouth 5-0 at Wembley yesterday.

But having failed to make a single signing in the summer, the Argentine chief might be tempted to get his cheque book out.

The Sun claim Norwich sensation Max Aarons is a potential target.


The right-back is regarded as one of the hottest prospects in the Championship and is tipped for big things.

Despite being only 18 years old, the Canaries already value their prized asset at £15m.

It’s suggested Spurs have watched him closely this season.

However, their only chance of landing him is if he’s loaned straight back to the Norfolk-based outfit.

Aarons has already made 18 appearances this term and scored two goals.

Jack Grealish, meanwhile, has been on Pochettino’s radar for a while.

The north Londoners were desperate to sign him in the summer but a move failed to materialise.

Tottenham currently sit second in the table – six points behind Liverpool.

Sky Sports transfer expert Dharmesh Sheth has hinted that Spurs could still land Grealish, but it’ll cost mega money.

That seems unlikely – although with Tottenham firmly in title contention nothing can be ruled out.

“Tottenham signed no-one in the summer transfer window and January is always a difficult time,” Sheth said.

“Grealish was the one they were after during the summer but there were two sides to that story.

“There was the pre-takeover at Aston Villa and post takeover.

“He’s now signed a new five-year contract at Aston Villa following the takeover in August.

“Now Villa are in a position where they are financially stable and they can command a bigger transfer fee than potentially they would have been able to before.

“If a club came in for Grealish, Villa could say ‘well, he’s under contract, we don’t need to sell him, but if we are going to sell him it’ll cost £40million-plus’.

“Tottenham offered £15million before that takeover happened, remember.

“On the flipside, the potential sale of Jack Grealish from Aston Villa would alleviate any FFP worries hanging over the club.

“I can’t see Villa selling him in January particularly with them going for promotion back to the Premier League.”
