A case in point: Jota can find ‘salvation’… at Tottenham

Good relationship with manager Ange Postecoglou since his Celtic days.

It was surprising to learn that young winger Portuguese Jota had his paths blocked at Saudi Arabia’s Al Ittihad, where he moved from Celtic.

The limitation of the number of foreigners and the alleged discomfort of the fans for not being a world-class star determined that the player was left with little margin of use in the emblem led by Nuno Espírito Santo.

However, according to the English press, there may be an alternative way for Jota to smile again. If the player becomes available for transfer, something that could very well happen in the crazy world of Saudi transfers, then Tottenham could welcome the former Benfica player with open arms in January 2024.

The good relationship he has with Spurs manager Ange Postecoglou, cemented in their time at Celtic, is the basis of this speculation. Brentford, Crystal Palace, Everton, Fulham, and West Ham United could also be options, as they have already shown interest in the Portuguese.
