Tottenham Hotspur have endured a rollercoaster of a season so far, and the January transfer window was no different.
Spurs were eyeing numerous players over the month, but experienced several big disappointments.
In the end, Tottenham got two signings over the line – Rodrigo Bentancur and Dejan Kulusevski.
According to football.london, Antonio Conte is ‘content’ with the work done to start the process of shaping his squad,
In particular, the Tottenham boss is reportedly happy to have offloaded the high-profile players he did not want in his dressing room.
Now, Conte looks set for further positive updates in the shape of players returning from injuries.
Sky Sports reporter Lyall Thomas claimed earlier today that Son Heung-min is back in training and available to play.
Cristian Romero is also closing in on a long-awaited return to action.
The 23-year-old suffered a hamstring injury playing for Argentina in November’s World Cup qualifier against Brazil.
Romero has been a key player for Tottenham since joining the club last summer from Atalanta.
He has started seven games in the Premier League and played both of Conte’s first two matches in charge of the club.
Just over a week ago, Conte said Romero was “almost 100 percent fit” and “very, very close to coming back”.
The manager added: “For sure after the international break he is available to play and help us.”
And today, the Tottenham defender posted the following picture on Twitter:
Now, it’s worth mentioning Spurs haven’t put up any new training photos lately.
Nonetheless, Romero sharing this today could possibly be a hint in terms of his availability.
And given how crucial the player has been to Spurs this season, it’s a post that should seriously excite fans and Conte.
