Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with a string of potential new signings during the January transfer window, but as yet no new faces have joined Mauricio Pochettino’s Spurs squad.
Potential reinforcements in attacking areas are being touted as a priority in the press, with a pressing issue for the North London side in the final third that needs to be addressed this month.
Tottenham are overly reliant on a handful of star players to create and score goals, with Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen and Son Heung-min key figures for Pochettino’s team.
However, with Georges-Kevin Nkoudou loaned out to Burnley earlier this month, Spurs lack the strength in depth to fight for honours across a number of competitions.
As such, Tottenham should look to make a loan move for one of these three in January to add an extra attacking option to Pochettino’s squad.
The Paris Saint-Germain attacker has struggled for first-team football this season in the French capital and has recently admitted his unhappiness amid talk of a transfer.
Tottenham are currently 7/4 favourites with many betting websites to sign Moura before the window closes, but Napoli are also believed to be suitors of the Brazilian winger.
With much of Spurs’ attacking play focused on intricate passing through the centre of the pitch, the PSG forward’s pace and width would add another dimension to the team’s play.
The Portugal international is a sublimely gifted football and versatile enough to play across a number of positions, which would be a big boost for Tottenham going into a busy list of fixtures.
With Gomes not able to break into a star-studded Barcelona side, the offer of a new challenge in London could be an attractive one for the attacking midfielder – who was linked with Spurs last summer.
Making the offer to take the former Valencia star on loan would be a smart move for Tottenham and could add creativity and guile to Pochettino’s squad.
The Germany international has experience of the Premier League after his time with Chelsea and is currently on the fringes of the Borussia Dortmund squad.
Tottenham could make use of the German’s technical ability, experience and energy if he ended up at the Wembley Stadium on loan this month.
