So far throughout this summer, despite the 2nd July, the transfer window has been one to forget for Tottenham fans. On the 2nd July Tottenham confirmed the signing of both Jack Clarke and Tanguy Ndombele, and since then we’ve had no incomings.
However, the need for a new signing is greater than ever. Not only is Mauricio Pochettino becoming more and more agitated as the days go by, but now that Dele Alli is set to miss the start of the Premier League season with injury (BBC) it gives the club even more need to sign some players.
Full-back and attacking midfield seem to be the two areas that are most likely to be strengthened. Dele’s absence will obviously pile the pressure on the club when it comes to bringing in a new #10, but there are gaps in the squad that need filling.
Don’t get us wrong. Tottenham don’t need to sign players because Dele Allis now injured, they’ve long needed to bring in some players, but with Dele now sidelined with a hamstring problem, it just heightens the need for a couple of incomings.
Tanguy Ndombele has been signed and is a significant player bolstering the Lilywhites midfield, but with Ben Davies, Juan Foyth and Serge Aurier all injured across the full-back roles and Dele injured whilst Christian Eriksen is being constantly linked away, it doesn’t make for great reading.
Daniel Levy has some serious work to do. Tottenham’s chief executive simply has to pull his finger out and get some transfers over the line, although as things stand it seems that the business will continue going down to the wire, giving the Lilywhites even more reason to stress.
