Tottenham Hotspur Face Roadblock in Antonio Nusa Brentford Talks
But before the January transfer window closes, at least one more player is anticipated to be signed, whether that player joins the team right away or at a later time.
Nusa fits into the second of those categories, according to reports from last week, with Spurs trying to work out a deal with Club Brugge before letting the prospect play the rest of the season in Belgium.
Even though the deal seemed to be moving forward without any problems, later reports said that Brentford had surpassed Spurs in the race to finalise a deal before the end of the month.
According to reports, the Bees have agreed to pay Club Brugge £25.6 million for the 18-year-old and, similar to Spurs, to let him finish 2023–24 at his present club.
However, due to back and knee difficulties in the medical, Brentford is prepared to abandon their efforts to finalise a deal, according to CBS Sports journalist Ben Jacobs, who is posting on X.
The Daily Mail states that Spurs now regard themselves as back in the race for Nusa’s signature as a result.
It is now unclear if Spurs will try to renegotiate agreements with their Club Brugge counterparts in light of the purported disclosures in the medical.
Nusa has received consistent senior action this season despite the mentioned problems, totaling 28 games across all competitions.
In 1330 minutes of football, he has provided four goals and three assists. Since July, he has also been awarded four senior caps for Norway.
Nusa has reportedly piqued the interest of Chelsea, Newcastle United, Fulham, and other teams at various stages in January since the kid fits their ideal new recruit profile.
Even though Nusa’s contract is valid through the conclusion of the 2026–2027 season, Club Brugge seems eager to finalise a transfer before the end of the month.
