Recent reports have linked Tottenham Hotspur to Bristol City left-back, Joe Bryan for a transfer move before the end of the January window. The Robins have valued him at £7m, which might be less than a pocket pincher for a top pedigree side like the Spurs.
Joe Bryan has been one of the key figures in Bristol City’s impressive campaign to push for the promotion to Premier League. He has provided a lot of threat offensively while staying motivated on the defensive end. His entire career has been played out with the Robins with 212 appearances so far, making him one of the biggest academy success stories. He has a versatile presence on the left flank and is capable of providing the side with the depth they need to control the tempo of the game.
His beautiful strike gave the Championship side the 51st minute lead against Manchester United in the Quarter Final stage of the EFL League Cup, a testament of his impressive technical abilities. Bryan is also a remarkable defensive presence with an average of 3 tackles per game in the league. If Mauricio Pochettino is looking into future talents like Ryan Sessegnon that he can develop, Bryan is the successful end product who will deliver at the premium level.
At just 24, his future is as bright as Tottenham’s ambitions to win a league title – uncertain but favourable.
Tottenham have faced a few problems over the shock and sudden exit of Kyle Walker to Manchester City last summer. Danny Rose’s long-term injury did not help their case either, which eventually depleted the squad ranks by the time the Champions League fixtures rolled in. Pochettino has had to work with Kevin Trippier and Ben Davies in the early days of the current campaign and is still sweating over Rose’s probable departure in the near future.
The 27-year-old caused a lot of controversies when he openly expressed his displeasure with the club’s ways of treating their players. He is clearly not satisfied with the wages he receives and was heavily linked with a move to Manchester United.
Even with the imbalance in the squad and with injuries to key players, the Argentine manager has pushed through with the squad. The Argentine is well aware of the fact that he does have to push for a place in the top four of the Premier League. Their European campaign has also been incredibly successful and the addition of Bryan will only bolster them further towards a more ambitious finish to the season.
