Antonio Conte’s side are seeking out agreements to replace two departures with top-quality players. According to Sky Transfer Centre, Tottenham Hotspur targets include replacing the likes of Bryan Gil and Japhet Tanganga with match-winners and solid defenders.
All About Tottenham Hostpur Targets at The End of the Window
Who is Leaving the Enfield Training Centre?
One of the two players leaving the club is Bryan Gil, of interest to Valencia. Gil is a winger with a lot of pace and creativity, dazzling the Lilywhites and their faithful fans. Despite strong performances, the Spaniard does not fit into Antonio Conte’s plans for the club.
Meanwhile, Japhet Tanganga could see a move to Premier League rivals Nottingham Forest. The Midlands side are considering a permanent deal, with Spurs holding out for a fee of around £17 million. This would be the 17th signing for Forest in this window as the promoted side look to cement their place in the league.

Who Are the Tottenham Hotspur Targets on the Wing?
The North London side are considering moves for two players at the moment. The first of these is Leeds United‘s Daniel James. The Welshman is a permanent fixture in the national team. His impressive performances this season feature an incredible amount of energy and high sprinting levels, which is perfect for a Conte wing-back.
Wilfried Zaha is another player of interest. The Crystal Palace star has one year left on his deal, and with seemingly no movement on a new contract, could look for another club. Antonio Conte’s side also has an interest in Ruslan Malinovskyi at Atalanta, who has just a year on his contract.
Who Are the Targets at the Back?
Ashley Phillips at Blackburn Rovers is the foremost of the Tottenham Hotspur targets in defence. The academy star has a lot of potential, with powerful tackles, a range of passing and impressive maturity on the pitch being staples of his game. He has the right attributes for a Conte defender and could grow at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Spurs have relatively few other targets in defensive roles. The club has a lot of depth, and whilst more centre-backs could come in, there are relatively few firm rumours about the players Antonio Conte wants in his push to bring the Lilywhites out of their trophy drought. Making another move depends on the opportunities that arise, as players such as Trevoh Chalobah at Chelsea consider moves.
