Tottenham Hotspur make transfer decision regarding AS Monaco attacker

Latest Tottenham Hotspur news

Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly decided not to pursue a late deadline day move for AS Monaco attacker Gelson Martins.

The forward has been linked with a move to the Premier League this evening but will not be switching to the London club.

Martins, 27, has been on the books of his current club since 2019.

Sky Sports reporter Lyall Thomas reports that Spurs are ‘not convinced’ enough by him and have decided to stick with what they have got (see tweet below):

No Spurs move

Spurs have made a decent start to the new Premier League season and although many of their supporters will have wanted them to be more busy on the final day of the transfer window, there is no point in them signing someone for the sake of it.

Martins, who has played for the likes of Sporting Lisbon and Atletico Madrid in the past, would have provided useful competition and back-up in their attacking department.

However, with the likes of Son Heung-Min, Dejan Kulusevic and Harry Kane in fine form right now, he may have struggled to get into the team.

This is a transfer pursuit that Antonio Conte’s side could look to revisit in the January transfer market if they feel they need another option going forward.

For now though it appears they will be moving into the next few months with the squad that they started today with. All in all, it has been a great window for Spurs and they have a lot to luck forward to this term.
