Three reasons Southampton must hijack Tottenham’s bid to sign Denis Suarez

According to reports in The Telegraph, Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly interested in signing Barcelona star Denis Suarez on loan during the January transfer window.

The Telegraph says that while Spurs are expecting to have a quiet month in terms of incomings and outgoings, they are keen on Barca duo Andre Gomes and Suarez, who could be available on loan in order to boost his minutes on the pitch and to aid his development and progress.

The 24-year-old was once on Manchester City’s books and he could well attract interest from a number of Premier League sides if he was made available.

Meanwhile, Southampton are only above the top flight relegation zone on goal difference following a poor campaign under Mauricio Pellegrino, and they are likely to look to spend and add some players to their squad this month following the £75m sale of Virgil van Dijk to Liverpool.

Having scored just 21 goals in 22 Premier League games boosting his side’s attacking options could be the Argentine manager’s priority before the window slams shut on January 31, and bringing Suarez to St Mary’s could prove to be a shrewd move.
