This summer, we marvelled at Tottenham and their impressive purchases in the transfer window. Punters in the Football Transfer Tavern thought they could be title contenders this term and have been proven right with their start to the season.
Brazilians, Spaniards, you name it, Andre Villas-Boas has it all! There is some serious talent not to mention experience in the squad at White Hart Lane now. That being said, one of our punters points out that not so long ago, Spurs were signing the likes of David Bentley, Aaron Lennon and other top young stars way back when.
Established players may be the way to win trophies and break into the top four in the short-term, but the project Andre Villas-Boas has planned for the North London club is a long one. As our punters note, the way to do that is with young, up and coming players being added to the squad.
With that in mind, we have moved away from the pool table and have gone towards the bar to compile a list of the players that AVB could sign from around Europe.
These players are under the age of 23 and ones for the future – and given the way the club have started the season, it seems the future could be very bright indeed.
