With five of the top six spending big on the transfer front thus far, Spurs are yet to freshen up their squad with any new faces, but this does not mean trouble for Tottenham.
Mauricio Pochettino will be keen to add to an already talented squad, and build on an FA Cup semi-final as well as a 2nd place in the Premier League, but that is easier said than done.
Reports close to the club have reported that the Lilywhites are keen to bring in a back up centre back, an understudy to Mousa Dembele in central midfield and a player that can play anywhere in the front three behind lead striker Harry Kane.
However, the problem with Pochettino’s transfer intentions, is that the club are budgeting for a new 62,500 seater capacity stadium. Also, the transfer targets must be aware of their squad status and be prepared for limited game time. Spurs main reported targets this summer have been just Ross Barkley and Thomas Lemar, although the deal may seem unlikely with both selling clubs holding out for a hefty fee.
However, Spurs had the best defence and the best attack in the Premier League last year despite numerous injuries to key players during the season such as Toby Alderweireld and Harry Kane. Spurs can also look forward to key players returning this season, with Danny Rose and Harry Winks all set to return to full fitness during pre-season, as well as a belated comeback from Erik Lamela, who had registered 11 goals in all competitions the previous campaign.
Spurs are being patient in the window and taking their time, waiting for the right player at the right moment. Mauricio Pochettino and chairman Daniel Levy are keen to avenge their mistakes last year, as they threw £30 million down the drain with the acquisition of Moussa Sissoko.
And believe me, nobody at Tottenham wants another Moussa Sissoko, nobody!
