According to The Sun, Tottenham Hotspur plans to return with an improved offer from Wigan Athletic striker Kyle Joseph this month after failing to get it in the summer.
The 19-year-old hit a superb hat-trick during his team’s 4-3 win over Burton on Tuesday, and that has put the Spurs on their toes once again.
The North London giants submitted a £ 150,000 offer for the Scottish Under-21 forward last summer and also offered him a lucrative personal offer, but he was not yet interested in moving up to the English top flight and also turned down a deal. of Sheffield United.
Joseph has four goals in nine of the League One starts this season and is showing his quality in front of goal.
While he would be eager to continue his development and continue to play first-team football in Wigan, the club could look to profit unless new owners come in.
They remain in management and could end up losing a handful of players this week if an acquisition doesn’t occur.
The Spurs strengthened their youth squad with the addition of Alfie Devine to the squad in the summer, and he has trained regularly with coach José Mourinho’s team and has made progress.
The 16-year-old midfielder could make his official first-team debut this season given his best performances with the U23s, and that could help convince his former Wigan teammate to join Spurs, as there is a clear path to senior football.
Devine was part of Mourinho’s team in the preseason and Joseph could be the next to join Tottenham if all parties involved can reach an agreement.
Spurs parted ways with £ 300,000 to sign Devine and you may have to offer something similar to have a chance of landing the teenage forward.
