The Lowdown: Spurs spend big…
The Lilywhites spent big over the latest market in a bid to back manager Antonio Conte, who is seeking to improve upon Spurs’ top four finish last season.
Chelsea’s former boss guided the north Londoners to Champions League qualification at the back end of last year and he could have yet another Premier League top four finish in his sights for this season.
Ivan Perisic, Fraser Forster, Yves Bissouma, Richarlison, Clement Lenglet, Djed Spence and Destiny Udogie all put pen to paper on moves to N17 with star defender Cristian Romero also signing on a permanent deal.
According to a study from the CIES Football Observatory, the club’s net spend for 2022 amounts to around £116 million.
The Latest: Robinson reacts…
Following on from this £116m revelation, Robinson has been left thrilled and calls Spurs’ increased investment ‘promising’.
He explained to Football Insider:
“When you look at the recruitment and the backing he has had, it is promising. If Spurs were to have another two or three windows like that, 100 per cent they will be up there.
“That is where Spurs want to be. They have wanted to be there for a long time. There is a realistic chance of doing that.
“[Cristian] Romero, [Rodrigo] Bentancur and [Dejan] Kulusevski have been brilliant. Conte’s had two windows and has improved the squad greatly.
“There is still a couple of positions that need strengthening but it is taking shape. Without a doubt the squad is twice as strong as this time last year.”
The Verdict: Improving…
Chairman Daniel Levy’s steady investment into the club over 2022, coming amid ENIC’s £150 million equity increase, should warrant some praise.
Tottenham’s ambitious but careful approach to the summer market has landed a mixture of players with international ilk, trophy-winning experience and serious long-term potential.
If Spurs can keep building upon their recent successes under Conte, supporters could be in for some very exciting times ahead.
