It appears Tottenham Hotspur’s incoming transfers have stalled after our initial early foray saw a replacement for Mousa Dembele found and a potential star readied for 2019.
We then looked to be closing in on three or four top players which would really have made a statement as to our intentions going forward.
Whilst all has gone quiet with regard to incomings it would appear Kieran Trippier, Toby Alderweireld, Danny Rose and Christian Eriksen are all suddenly lined up to leave. All 4 are top, top players and it would be almost impossible to replace them, let alone better. Surely, all four will not be sold as this could be a disaster for our squad.
Here, we were thinking that Daniel Levy would back Mauricio Pochettino this window by loosening the purse strings with decisive and early signings that would strengthen the team and that we would get them in early so Poch had time to meld them into his ways before the start of the season.
It seems we are seeing Groundhog Day again with Levy, who appears not being prepared to pay out before funds have been generated to bring in new players. I truly hope that this situation can be rescued but I fear that Poch could be disappointed, for one time too many, if it is not. Come on Daniel prove my concerns unfounded and let’s get things positively moving forward again – time in this window is fast running out!
