Luton Town transfer targets, rumours and odds

It’s hardly a secret that every point in the Premier League feels like ecstasy. This is even more true for teams that are playing their first-ever season in the league and are eager to prove they have what it takes to remain at the top of English football. Such is the case with coach Rob Edwards’ team.

Luton Town’s fans are ecstatic over the fact that their favorite team gets to play against the giants, and if the Hatters can maintain this steady course, we might be headed toward a massive upset in the Premier League. At the time of writing, Luton Town rank 18th, and while the team is still in the relegation zone, we are sure that Everton’s one-point lead is not something the Hatters can’t handle. Especially, if some of the Luton Town transfer rumours in January 2024 become true.

Edwards’ players performed their hearts out in the games against Chelsea, Arsenal, and Manchester City, and while Luton Town lost all three of these matches at Kenilworth Road, we have to give credit where credit is due – the Hatters seem ready to stay in the Premier League. To ensure that, the men in charge will surely grant Rob Edwards a solid financial backup ahead of the second part of the campaign. Let’s see what the top Luton Town transfer rumours look like.

Rumoured Luton Town signings in January 2024

Oscar Zambrano

According to the latest Luton Town transfer rumours, we have coach Rob Edwards eyeing LDU Quito starlet Oscar Zambrano. The 19-year-old could be snapped up on a bargain buy worth £4m, but it seems that Bournemouth have also joined the race to sign the Ecuador U20 superstar.

Oscar Zambrano operates in the center of the park, and the Hatters could surely use his talents, as the midfield position seems to be the Achilles heel of the club. Apparently, Oscar Zambrano has also asked for 15% of this deal, but LDU Quito are desperately trying to talk him out of his intention, as the team is in need of a stronger financial package.

23-year-old Matt O’Riley is the next player that the Luton Town transfer rumours in January 2024 sent to Kenilworth Road. The Hounslow-born player is currently playing for Scottish Premiership’s Celtic, so if the Hatters want to have him on their side in January, they’ll have to be generous with their offer.

Matt himself is no stranger to English football despite being only 23 years old. His youth career with Fulham prepared him to a degree to the harsh realities of Premier League football, so we are sure that he’d be more than happy to show he has what it takes to perform.

Spurs’ defender is the latest one on coach Edwards’ radar. According to the latest Luton Town transfer rumours, the Hatters see Tanganga as a possible replacement for Teden Mengi, should the latter move to Crystal Palace or Craven Cottage.

Currently playing for Bundesliga’s Augsburg, Japhet Tanganga picked up a knee injury which deprives him of much-needed minutes, so if the Hatters decide to send Spurs an offer, they must know that Tanganga would be a slight risk. Japhet Tanganga made only four appearances for Spurs in the 2022/23 Premier League campaign, so it’s clear that if a tempting office arrives at Tottenham’s office, Ange Postecoglu would be quick to accept to open up finances for better deals.

Teden Mengi

With 14 Premier League games for Luton Town, Teden Mengi is turning out to be one of coach Rob Edwars’ biggest transfer hits last summer. The 21-year-old center-back is proving to be a valuable first-team member, and for the Luton Town transfer rumours to come true, Crystal Palace and Fulham will have to give the Hatters an offer they can’t refuse.

Coach Silva and the Cottagers are preparing another lucrative bid, but so is Roy Hodgson. Both teams desperately require a player of Mengi’s caliber. Both Palace and Fulham have been conceding goals left and right, and signing the former Manchester United starlet would definitely be a move in the right direction for both clubs.

Currently, Teden Mengi has a €7m price tag, but the Hatters would likely want a boosted offer for their star player. Both Fulham and Crystal Palace have the financial capacities to pull off this deal and prove this Luton Town transfer rumour correct. However, it’s down to Teden to decide if he’s up for a new challenge.
