Tottenham Hotspur could make a late splash in the transfer window…
What’s the word?
That’s according to transfer insider Dean Jones, who has been told to expect Spurs to do some more business before deadline day on September 1st.
“I’ve been told to look out for Tottenham signing a luxury player towards the back end of the window,” he revealed to GIVEMESPORT.
“They’re getting their main business done now, but Tottenham always go into the window in that last ten days, that last week, because they just love to be involved in that and see if they can get one more that boosts morale, and that’s the sort of thing that might happen this summer as well.”
What should now be Spurs’ priority in the transfer market?
Reason to be excited
This claim from the Eurosport journalist will surely raise excitement amongst the Lilywhites faithful as Spurs supporters can surely anticipate a late arrival to their squad for the 2022/23 campaign.
History tells us that this could indeed be the case, too.
Sporting director Fabio Paratici signed both Dejan Kulusevski and Rodrigo Bentancur from Juventus on deadline day during the January transfer window, and similarly, Emerson Royal joined from Barcelona on last summer’s deadline day.
It remains to be seen exactly who Spurs will target as that ‘luxury’ signing, though there are plenty of interesting names potentially still out there.
Paulo Dybala remains a free agent, the likes of Pau Torres and Gleison Bremer continue to be linked as further defensive upgrades, and there have been other mooted left-field targets such as Nicolo Zaniolo and Jesse Lingard.
Any of the aforementioned players could hit a chord with fans at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the final week of the window and as such, there’s plenty to be excited about, having already signed five players.
It is evident, however, that Spurs are nowhere near done with their summer spending, so supporters will surely be buzzing about what lies ahead in the coming weeks.
