Tottenham Hotspur have seen their impressive start to the 2023/24 Premier League season slightly derailed after losing their last two matches before the November international break. Things have really not been helped by the pile of injuries that have added more salt to their wounds. Fabrizio Romano gives an update on their plans for the January transfer window.

Are Spurs Going To Spend Big In Winter Window?
Romano has confirmed that even though the Lilywhites have a few injuries in their defence for now, they are not desperate to sign more defenders in the January window as potential cover for their first-choice options.

He also says that despite being slightly unlucky with all the injury issues piling up, Tottenham are not planning to panic because they know most of their unavailable players will be back in action towards the end of December.
The Spurs management are planning to assess the squad’s situation at the end of the year before making any decisions on possible transfers.
Romano also gives his personal take on what can be expected from the Lilywhites in January, writing on his CaughtOffside blog: “Overall, I don’t see Tottenham spending crazy money in January, that’s not the plan at the moment.”
“They’re happy with the balance in the squad right now, but of course, the recovery process of some key players will be important, so perhaps they could look for opportunities towards the end of the January window.”
Tottenham Plagued With Nasty Injuries
Ange Postecoglou has been extremely unfortunate to see some of the best players on his team fall prey to injuries after the bright start to the campaign. Inspired summer signing James Maddison recently confirmed that he will be out of action until the end of the year due to an ankle injury.
Centre-back Micky van de Ven is also expected to miss the remaining matches of 2023 after sustaining a hamstring issue in the loss to Chelsea.
On top of this, Richarlison is also out for a long period after having to undergo surgery for a problem. Despite all these knocks, Spurs do not seem to be panicking for the time being and are yet to make proper plans on possible investments to make in the upcoming transfer window.
