Tottenham Hotspurs started their season in a great way, but after 8 fixtures, they decreased their level. However they are in a good shape right now, Spurs’ journey hasn’t been perfect or comfortable, as they have been struggling with bad results. They have had different results between the previous fixtures, but Tottenham seems ready to return with its title run.

However, it will be a hard job for Mauricio Pochettino and his squad, as they are far from the current leader, Chelsea, but if they can make the right movements in this next transfer window, maybe Tottenham can have a streak and press in top spots of Premier League leaderboard.

Having in count that the lack of scoring and goal opportunity is an issue is gone now, Tottenham defense appears like the biggest problem of the team at this moment, as it has been damaged while playing against the strong teams. In addition the bad transfers the directive made in the pre-season, when Tottenham gave players who could be very valuable for them right now, like Federico Fazio, a player who Tottenham gave on loan to Serie A.

Facing January, Pochettino and his partners will try to reinforce and shield their defence, as they will face two competitions from 2017. Hence, we are going to mention three perfect centre-backs Tottenham should target this January.

Emanuel Mammana

The Argentinean player started showing his talents while he was a part of River Plate, and now that he is playing in Ligue 1, Emanuel has improved his level in a great way. The current Olympique Lyon centre-back has been scouted by many top clubs during the summer transfer window, but the defender chose France, but we all are aware of the fact that if he puts a great show there, a move to England is not very far.

Chris Smalling

Just like their North London neighbours, Tottenham can acquire a great player if they decide to sign Chris Smalling. Chris has demonstrated his quality throughout these years and he could be a great boost to Tottenham defence. Seeing the options Tottenham have at their disposal, the Mancunian could fit perfectly at the Lane.Smalling has a great character and maturity, things that Tottenham needs in the strong moments.

Nacho Fernandez

Nacho Fernandez has been a regular player for both Real Madrid and Spain national team throughout these recent years, but now he is not seeing much time in his club since both Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane are healthy. Seeing his performances since his debut for Los Blancos, Nacho has everything to be a successful personnel at England. He is very secure in defence, he knows how to play with the ball at his feet, and he’s also a versatile player as he not only plays as a centre-back, but he can play as a right or left-back.
