With less than seven days left of the window, Nuno Espirito Santo has signed just three players, and with Pierluigi Gollini and Cristian Romero both on loan, they’ve technically only spent £22.5m on 20-year-old Bryan Gil from Sevilla.
Would you take Ward-Prowse at Tottenham?
However, despite making a perfect start to the Premier League season following wins over Man City and Wolves, Santo is still desperately looking to add to his squad.
Adama Traore is on Tottenham’s radar according to Telegraph, although they’ve already seen a loan bid rejected, whilst Santo wants another defensive player, with Serge Aurier and Moussa Sissoko both expected to depart.
But with Spurs having a history of wasting money in the market, with only a handful of their record arrivals list proving a success, Bridge has warned the north Londoners to be smart with their business.
He told The Transfer Tavern:
“You look at Sanchez for £40m. Him and Ndombele have cost £100m on those two players alone. When Tottenham say they haven’t spent, they have, they’ve just done it so badly.
“And Tottenham can’t afford to spend badly. City can buy four centre-backs and get it wrong every time, Tottenham cannot do that.”
