Reports are emerging that Tottenham’s head coach, Ange Postecoglou, is keenly interested in bringing former Celtic standout Jota to his squad.
Jota’s career trajectory has taken an unexpected turn, as he currently finds himself sidelined at Al-Ittihad, just a few months after making the move from Celtic to the Saudi Arabian club.
Ange Postecoglou, who previously managed Celtic, is now eyeing a reunion with the talented midfielder. Despite showing promise at Al-Ittihad, Jota has only featured in five matches and managed to score one goal during his brief stint.
According to data from Transfermarkt.com, Jota’s current market value stands at an impressive 13 million euros, a testament to his skills and potential on the pitch.
The Sunday Express has reported that Postecoglou is eager to facilitate a reunion with Jota, especially in light of the unfortunate injury sidelining Ivan Perisic for the entire season. The addition of Jota would significantly bolster Tottenham’s squad depth.

Interestingly, Jota has not been included in Al-Ittihad’s Saudi Pro League roster. However, he remains eligible to participate in Champions League and cup competitions. Expressing a strong desire to secure his release from the contract and continue playing this season, Jota has initiated discussions on his future.
While Jota has made his intentions clear, coach Nuno has rejected the notion of releasing him. Nevertheless, ongoing discussions are taking place between the parties involved, as Jota remains determined to avoid the prospect of sitting out an entire season.
The ongoing saga surrounding Jota’s future has injected an element of uncertainty into the upcoming transfer window. Tottenham, along with other clubs, is closely monitoring the situation, and the football world eagerly anticipates the resolution of Jota’s predicament and the potential realization of a reunion with Ange Postecoglou at Tottenham.
