The lowdown: Busy summer
N17 has already been a hive of activity during the transfer window, with no fewer than seven players arriving at a combined cost of just under £108m (Transfermarkt).
However, as the deadline fast approaches, numerous players could still be on their way out of the club as Sergio Reguilon, Harry Winks and Japhet Tanganga all continue to be linked with moves away from north London.
One well-informed onlooker has now delivered his verdict on where there could still be business to be done by Fabio Paratici and Antonio Conte over the next 72 hours or so…
The latest: ‘Definitely’
The Eurosport journalist said: “There are other names on their list that are much better value [than Anthony Gordon].
“Adama Traore has got to be one that is looked at under this umbrella, but it’s one to keep an eye on, I definitely think that Tottenham are looking for a player of this type.”
The verdict: Fingers crossed
Although the strength in depth beyond Harry Kane and Son Heung-min has certainly been improved with the captures of Richarlison and Dejan Kulusevski this year, there remains scope for at least one further attack-minded addition before the September 1 deadline.
As such, the Lilywhites have been linked with a move for the aforementioned forwards, along with Atalanta ace Ruslan Malinovskyi, in recent days.
Another name linked with the north Londoners is Leeds United speedster Dan James, a player in a similar mould to Traore given his lightning-quick pace, and a late summer swoop for the Welshman could be the desired route if the Wolves dynamo proves unattainable.
