Tottenham Hotspur manager Ange Postecoglou on the touchline against Manchester City

Tottenham look to surprise England defender in search for reinforcements: report

Tottenham are eyeing an English centre-back as a January signing who can improve their squad.

The Lilywhites have been decimated at the back in recent weeks, with manager Ange Postecoglou losing first-choice defensive pairing Cristian Romero and Micky van de Ven to suspension and injury respectively. 

With Tottenham field four full-backs in defence in their recent draw with Manchester City, the need for more central defensive cover is obvious – and something they could be about to address.

Ben Godfrey has played just one minute of Premier League football this season under Sean Dyche – but is apparently a Spurs target. The 25-year-old, who missed the first half of last season with a broken fibula, could help fill gaps in a Spurs squad that has been stretched by injuries recently.
