Tottenham’s 10-match unbeaten run in the 2023-24 English Premier League (EPL) has come to an end. Spurs’ unbeaten streak came to an end on Sunday with a 1-4 loss to Chelsea in the 11th round.
The blow was more than just a loss. First, Mickey van der Vaart and James Maddison went down with injuries. Maddison felt a twinge in his ankle, while van der Vaan grabbed his hamstring. On top of that, Christian Romero and Destiny Udogie were sent off. Romero will miss at least two games for a direct red card, while Udogie will miss one.
Naturally, Tottenham’s attention turns to the January winter transfer window. It’s still two months away, but there’s a reason to get busy. National team call-ups.
Captain Son Heung-min will be traveling with the South Korean national team to the Asian Cup in Qatar in January. It’s a critical departure for Tottenham. Son has eight goals and one assist in 11 league games this season. He is the team’s second-leading scorer in the league. He’s been a key contributor up front with Heung-min’s struggles.
Tottenham are on the lookout for a new striker as they are forced to sell Son Heung-min to Qatar in January. Their target is England striker Toni. Toni has been with Brentford since the 2020-21 season, having played for Newcastle, Wigan, and other teams. He has proven to be competitive in the Premier League with his goalscoring ability along with his excellent physicality.
However, there is a recent disciplinary twist. Tony was found to have participated in illegal betting and was suspended for eight months in July. He won’t be able to play again until January of next year.
For Tottenham, Son’s departure coincides with Tony’s return. According to Football Insider, “Tottenham will face competition from Arsenal and Chelsea, who are also interested in Toni. The transfer fee will not exceed £70 million,” according to Football Insider. 토토사이트
