Tottenham tipped to sign two or three players, according to reporter


Tottenham Hotspur are facing a big couple of weeks in the transfer market.

After last season's disappointment the focus in north London is very much in ensuring that the club turn things around this term.

A sixth place finish meant that Spurs fell short of expectations in the league, but with Jose Mourinho in charge it seems that the brief is now clear - finish in the top four and challenge for silverware.

If they're to do that then they'll almost certainly need to strengthen.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Joe Hart and Matt Doherty have already joined the club this summer, but there's plenty of work still to do.

One man who's been covering the club closely is Football London's Tottenham reporter Rob Guest who believes that there could be at least two new arrivals before the transfer window slams shut.

Writing in a Q&A for Football London, Guest said: "A new striker is now Tottenham's priority after the signings of Hart, Hojbjerg and Doherty.

"Mourinho is believed to want to add a new centre-back to his squad but that may all depend on outgoings prior to the deadline and how much money is left in the kitty.


"A move for a centre-back would likely be late in the window."

Guest added: "The Everton game highlighted that Spurs need a creative player as Harry Kane had very little in way of chances.

"Hopefully things will change in terms of creativity once Lo Celso is back fit and Ndombele gets more game time.

"At present a new striker is priority but there's no doubt that they are going to have to strengthen there at some point if the same issues continue to crop up."

GIVEMESPORT'S Phil Spencer says...

Signing players is an absolute must for Tottenham Hotspur.


What we saw against Everton at the weekend was a side who were short of ideas and in desperate need of alternative options.

As Guest suggested, a defender is needed to replace Jan Vertonghen, while the need for Spurs to bring in an extra striker is common knowledge at this point.

That said it could be a difficult deal to do.

But while signing a frontman will be a big help, there is a real case for suggesting that the club need more creativity.

The side haven't looked the same since Christian Eriksen left the club, and until they replace him they will struggle to meet their objectives.
