You can understand why the Tottenham fans on Twitter would be frustrated at the moment given the way their transfer window has gone. There are just seven days remaining and Spurs are the only club from last season’s top six who are yet to sign a player. However, according to the Evening Standard, Spurs will complete the signing of Jack Grealish in the coming days.

Plenty of Tottenham fans are sceptical as the ongoing Grealish speculation has been kicking around for months. The Birmingham born Aston Villa man has spent his entire career with his boyhood club and if he does move to Tottenham he will have to really step up to prove that he has what it takes in the Premier League for one of the big sides, having only known relegation from England’s top flight.
If Tottenham can sign Grealish the fans will be hoping it can snowball into the club securing the signing of some other players who they’ve been linked with. Going into the window, your typical Tottenham fans would have told you that they want between two and four new additions, with a central midfielder and a winger the priorities, plus anything big if the chance arises. However, with just seven days left nothing has arisen and the fans have been left very disappointed.
Here’s what the Lillywhites’ make of the Grealish news:
Been ‘the coming days’ for about a month hasn’t it lads?

Coming days. In the next few days. Possibly. Perhaps. Never

If Grealish does the sign, the fans will be relieved but will also be hoping for some more business.
