Who's next on Ange's short-list? Tottenham eye four midfield players

Spurs have acted quickly to start off the chaos of January's transfer window with Timo Werner already at the club and Radu Dragusin soon to be unveiled. Despite the talent they've brought in, however, there's still a number of midfield options the club are considering going after.

Ange's revitalized Tottenham took on the Premier League by storm at the start of the season going undefeated across the first 10 matches and finding themselves in the first-place position.

Since then the squad has been hindered by an unbelievable number of injuries to key players, and while Ange has coped in the process, the task of winning has become much more arduous.

Now, as the North London club enter the back-half of the season, it seems like they're looking to back Ange with whatever personnel he needs in order to excel to the highest degree of performance possible.

As such, the organization has already brought in former Chelsea striker Timo Werner for the remainder of the season in order to fill in for Son's absence this month and provide more depth to the front line's central area.

Genoa CFC's center-back Radu Dragusin is also set to be joining the club within the next 24 hours.

Now, to round out their incomings, Spurs are looking for potential midfielders to bring in.

21-year-old Hayden Hackney is one name that's been circulating continuously over the past few days. The Middlesbrough player, who helped his team clinch a 1-0 win over Chelsea in leg one of the Carabao Cup semi-finals, is currently pulling interest from Manchester United and Liverpool as well.

Conor Gallagher has also been linked with a move to North London over the past few months, although his recent price-tag increase may push a potential move back to this summer.

Tottenham could also return to Genoa after completing their deal for Dragusin in order to acquire the talents of Danish youngster Morten Frendrup, according to Give Me Sport (via The Boy Hotspur).

Some conversation around AS Roma's Bryan Cristante has also emerged, according to Il Romanista (via One Football).

Whomever Spurs choose to go with, it's fair to say that they'll be walking out of this transfer window with a slew of new talent to pick from come match day.
