Tottenham are heavily interested in signing PSV Eindhoven winger Johan Bakayoko, according to journalist Rudy Galetti.
Spurs are looking to add depth to their squad in January and Ange Postecoglou has reportedly highlighted three areas of his squad that he wants to strengthen ahead of the January window.
Signing a new centre-back is a top priority for the club, but the north London giants could also look to bolster their forward department as well, especially in wide areas.
Bakayoko is a highly talented young winger who progressed through the youth ranks at the club. He has already made eight appearances for the Belgian national team. Alan Hutton, the former Spurs player, described him as “amazing” earlier this month (10 December, 2023).
The 20-year-old has a contract at the Dutch club until 2026 and he is also appreciated by Premier League rivals Liverpool.

The youngster has been in terrific form this season, managing three goals and eight assists in 16 Eredivisie matches so far.
He has also scored one goal and registered an assist in the Champions League as well. Needless to say, he is a top talent, and Spurs are keen to land him.
According to a report from The Telegraph, Tottenham are most likely to target Jota in January. The former Celtic winger, who shone under Postecoglou at Celtic, wants to leave Saudi Arabian club Al-Ittihad in January.
Spurs will look to sign Jota either on loan or on a free transfer which is more profitable to them. Bakayoko has a contract at PSV until 2026, and the Dutch giants are expected to demand a lot of money for their highly-rated winger.
