We felt that wouldn’t be long before the floodgates opened with regards Tottenham transfer business this summer.
The first 12 months of any manager’s contract are the most important and Mauricio Pochettino will want to make some serious inroads in the transfer market to get this Tottenham side playing in his preferred style.
We think Pochettino is going to be an absolutely sensational Tottenham manager but some will be quite surprised by the money that he could be about to spend.
Recent reports suggest that Tottenham are planning a triple deal of some €62m (£50m) for Micheal Vorm, Ben Davies and Wilfried Bony of Swansea.
Having had an underwhelming season in The Premier league last year you’d imagine that buying Swansea’s three best players wouldn’t necessarily catapult Tottenham to Champions League football.
But, when you look at the players individually they would provide extra quality in exactly the areas that Tottenham need it most.
Tottenham have opened talks with Swansea City over a £50million triple deal for three of the Welsh club’s star men.
The White Hart Lane club are ready to go big for striker Wilfried Bony, goalkeeper Michel Vorm and left-back Ben Davies, with new manager Mauricio Pochettino looking to kick-start his transfer business.
Wilfried Bony – Strikers live and die by their goal record (apart from Emile Heskey apparently) and Bony ticks all the boxes here. To score 25 goals in 48 games in your debut season for a struggling side tells you all you need to know. It’s a no-brainer for Tottenham.
Michel Vorm – Tottenham need to replace Gomes and Friedel at some stage soon and Vorm, at 30, is safe as houses. He’s played 90 league games for the Welsh side and also turned out 14 times for Holland.
Ben Davies – Tottenham have serious concerns at left-back and need at least one more player for that area of the squad. 21 year old Davies has already played 10 times for Wales – although, let’s face it, my nan could probably get a run out for them – and been a solid and ever-present Premier League player for the last two years. He is very athletic and represents a solid, low-risk investment.
Let’s see Bony in action. Tottenham fans: money well spent?
