You get the sense that, while Tottenham have done some good business in the market already, that the lion’s share of the transfer spend is yet to be done.
Reports over the last week have suggested that various high-priced acquisitions can still come on board before the end of the window. Having only brought defenders to the club so far, you would imagine Tottenham will look at other areas of their team, as well as trying to pursue a deal for Mateo Masacchio.
Southampton seem to be digging their heels in with regards to further sales and that may mean Tottenham turn their attention elsewhere in the search for a striker. But with Morgan Schneiderlin seemingly keen to move we still think that Spurs could bring him in. He recently suggested that he wasn’t mentally ready to play for Southampton at present. This usually means a transfer isn’t far away.
We would love to see Tottenham sign Memphis Depay because he’s a genuinely exciting player. And they will also need to bring in another striker. Wilfried Bony is a wonderful footballer and not only incredibly nimble but also built like a tank – he’s perfect for The Premier League and his goal scoring record in England proves that.
So, if Tottenham do the business that we hope they do, here’s how they could line up, for that first game of the season or, at worst, by the end of the window.
Lloris, Davies, Musacchio, Vertonghen, Walker – Scneiderlin, Sandro – Depay, Eriksen, Lennon – Bony
