Coach is ready to say goodbye to superstar who’s very desperate to leave in January as He want full time game,ange insist to get him back to the squad,

Ange Postecoglou made it clear in his pre-match press conference on Thursday afternoon that it is better to conclude business at the beginning of the January transfer window. Tending to be later movers in the winter market in years gone by, Tottenham fans will be praying that Daniel Levy backs his head coach at the turn of the year and gets some deals over the line pretty sharpish.

Making some big strides in the summer market with some excellent additions, Tottenham will be hoping for more of the same if they are to add to their squad in January. All eyes, of course, will be on incomings at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium but there could well be some movement in terms of players heading out of the door.
So who could potentially depart in the January window as Postecoglou and Johan Lange plan for the future? football.london takes a look below.

Hugo Lloris

Making it clear he wanted to depart for a new challenge last summer, a transfer exit never came to fruition for Lloris and he still remains a Tottenham player. Named as part of Spurs’ 25-man Premier League squad for the campaign but yet to make an appearance in a matchday squad under Postecoglou, the turn of the year could be the time when he brings his long association with the club to an end

It’s no good Lloris watching on from the stands on a matchday, especially now he’s in the final few years of his career, and a January exit makes sense for all concerned. Hopefully that is the case so the Frenchman can get his career back on track.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg

Hojbjerg was another player tipped to depart Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the summer but a transfer away never quite happened. Previously a regular in the Tottenham XI, the Dane has dropped down to the bench this campaign but that hasn’t stopped him playing a key role late in games.

Hojbjerg has been superb in some games and his leadership and experience has helped Tottenham get over the line and get maximum points on the board. Set to enter the final 18 months of his deal come the start of 2024, Tottenham’s No.5 will undoubtedly be linked with a move away and offers could potentially arrive on the table.

While other clubs may want to lure him away from N17, it would make sense to keep him in the capital unless such a tempting bid is submitted as it’s clear to see he still has a lot more to offer the team between now and May. It should be a rather straightforward decision for Tottenham, especially with Yves Bissouma and Pape Matar Sarr set to head off for a period of time to play in the Africa Cup of Nations.

Bryan Gil

Gil is another player who may also find himself in the headlines come January. Departing the club on loan at the turn of the year in the past two seasons, the Spaniard may be linked with another move away if his football is limited between now and January.

Spurs are going to lose Son Heung-min for a few matches at the start of the year due to his participation in the Asian Cup, thus giving Tottenham a big reason to keep Gil in the capital. A player who can be a big hit for Postecoglou in the final third, the next two months will be vital for the 22-year-old as he finally looks to make his mark for the club.

Ivan Perisic

Perisic may have already played his last game for the football club after sustaining a complex ACL injury in his right knee in non-contact training in September. It unfortunately is an injury that is expected to sideline him for the remainder of the campaign.

Despite question marks over when he will be next in action, reports from Croatia have suggested that the experienced player could be in line for a return to boyhood club Hajduk Split. If that is to be the case, Spurs could possibly sanction an early exit for the 34-year-old so that he can rejoin his hometown club.

Eric Dier

Set to enter the final six months of his Tottenham contract in January, Dier will be in the headlines regarding a transfer exit. From a financial perspective, Spurs really could do with cashing in on him rather than run the risk of losing him for nothing come the summer.
