Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern are starting to get anxious over the lack of transfer activity in North London.
Spurs ended the season in third, guaranteeing Champions League football at their next stadium next season. European football will allow the Lilywhites to attract the highest calibre of player to strengthen their squad in order to compete with Manchester City for the title. However, our punters are concerned that the majority of transfer news has concerned outgoings.
Toby Alderweireld has been heavily linked with an exit this summer with Manchester United interested in his services while Mousa Dembele is also expected to leave with significant interest from Italy. Dembele has been a mainstay in the Tottenham midfielder under Mauricio Pochettino and would be a massive loss. He would need to be replaced quickly.
Not a long-term replacement but a quality addition could be Juventus midfielder – Claudio Marchisio. Valued at £6.3m by Transfermarkt, the Italian could be used as a makeweight if Dembele decides to make the switch to Turin. He made 15 appearances in the Serie A last season, picking up one assist.
The 32-year-old is a vastly experienced star that would be used as a support player. He is a natural leader and would help blood Spurs youngsters through to the first-team. With excellent passing and vision, he would be a great fit under Pochettino.
Tottenham fans, thoughts?
