One of Spurs’ transfer targets is out for the season with an injury - and Antonio Conte’s team could also be set to lose out on signing a transfer target to Arsenal.

The January transfer window is now open - as such, Antonio Conte and Tottenham Hotspur will be looking to right the wrongs of their season so far. Spurs are currently fifth in the Premier League, but are undergoing a spell of poor performances and inconsistency. In their last game, they were beaten 2-0 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium by Unai Emery’s Aston Villa.

Unfortunately for Spurs fans, we only have bad news today. First of all, one of Tottenham’s reported transfer targets has been ruled out for the season with an injury. As such, he won’t be joining the club in the winter window.

Elsewhere, a player who has been linked with Spurs in recent weeks has now reportedly sealed a deal to join Arsenal. While the deal won’t take place in January, it could come to fruition in the summer, when the player’s contract will have expired.

Spurs transfer target out for season with injury

A Tottenham transfer target, Martin Terrier, has been ruled out for the rest of the season with a knee injury (per Footmercato). According to the French outlet, Terrier could be out of action for up to eight months.

Terrier was carried off on a stretcher during Rennes’ games with Nice, following a collision with Jordan Lotomba. Up until then, it had been a good season for Terrier - he had scored nine goals and picked up four assists in 16 appearances.

Tottenham could lose out on Evan Ndicka to Arsenal

Evan Ndicka, who had previously been linked with Spurs, is now closing in on a deal to join Arsenal, according to Calciomercato. However, Arsenal are not expected to make a move in January - instead, they will wait until the summer, when Ndicka’s contract at Eintracht Frankfurt expires.

In theory, Tottenham could potentially beat Arsenal to the punch if they offer to sign Ndicka earlier. However, doing this would not only mean that Spurs would have to pay money, there is also no evidence to suggest that Spurs are exercising this option.

Ndicka has played in all 15 games for Frankfurt in the Bundesliga this season. It has been a decent season in the German top division for Die Adler so far, as they sit in fourth position with 27 points.
