It’s excellent news that Tottenham Hotspur pushed through the record signing of Tanguy Ndombele.
However, this only means we have replaced Moussa Dembele from last years squad (and we are yet to see if he can match or better our classy Belgium).
With top prospect Jack Clarke sent back to Leeds on loan, our current squad, quality wise, is as it was at the start of last season. I feel it might prove very difficult to better our team, especially if Christian Eriksen and Toby Alderweireld leave. Is it likely they can be replaced by better players or would we be pleased if we could just bring in players of a similar calibre?
Another consideration will be as to how many players we should bring in in one window – remember the difficulties we had trying to integrate the seven players we brought in with the Gareth Bale money!
It might be we will see a significant change of personnel over the next two or three weeks but will we see a significant rise in quality?
Would Daniel Levy buy Giovani Lo Celso, even if Eriksen stayed, ie a real financial investment, a better squad creating real competition for places – Man City and Liverpool would and so would Man Utd!
Come on Daniel, let’s go for it!
