With Austrian international centre back Kevin Wimmer already in the bag and Burnley’s Kieran Trippier also joining, Tottenham’s summer transfer business is starting to slowly pick up.
While Spurs fans would have openly admitted that another central defender in Wimmer was certainly required, they’re not so sure a new right back was and despite Trippier impressing for the Clarets last summer, this leaves DeAndre Yedlin’s long-term prospects somewhat unclear.
The United States international featured on Spurs’ end of season tour to Asia and Australia but only figured once under Pochettino in the Premier League after arriving in January with the Argentine manager preferring to deploy Eric Dier at right back.
All of that said, Tottenham fans are always glad to see new recruits arrive at White Hart Lane but they do admit they’d like to see some further signings with that X-factor.
Tottenham have always played in the game in the correct spirits in years gone by but will need to stamp out several naivety’s in their game if they are to break back into the top four for subsequent Champions League qualification that is so sought-after in this part of North London.
Most Spurs fans crave a new striker to lighten the scoring burden off of Harry Kane’s shoulders while another defensive-minded midfielder wouldn’t go amiss either with the jury still very much out on both Benjamin Stambouli and Etienne Capoue.
Add to the fact that Manchester United may potentially be swooping for Hugo Lloris as a David De Gea replacement and perhaps a new goalkeeper might even be required later on in the summer.
With so much speculation filtering in and around the bar at the moment, we’ve taken this moment to list the five Spurs transfer targets that Pochettino simply can’t afford to lose out on as the summer drags on.
