Tottenham Hotspur seem to be doing some very good business this transfer window as they have managed to sign an experienced Premier League midfielder in Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg as well as a goalkeeper to add some squad depth in Joe Hart.
They are also reportedly close to signing Matt Doherty, and Spurs correspondent for Football.London Alasdair Gold believes that some other signings will still be made.
Speaking about the possible signing of Matt Doherty as well as other transfers, Gold tweeted: ‘It’s not a sexy £100m signing but it’s a smart one and Tottenham proved last season that spending a lot of money didn’t solve their problems. It’s spending money in the right ways that does that. Doherty could prove to be one of the bargains of the window and Spurs aren’t done.’

Clearly the fact that there are supposedly more signings to be made is a big statement of intent from Spurs, showing that Jose Mourinho wants to battle for a top four position next season as they are in the Europa League for the upcoming campaign instead and following them reaching the Champions League final in 2018/19, they will want to return to that competition sooner rather than later.
This should excite supporters of the club and now make them wonder who Gold believes could also be signing for the club. 24 year-old Leicester City winger Demarai Gray has been linked, and this could be a good signing for squad depth, with the Premier League winner scoring 13 goals and assisting 17 since joining the Foxes.
Another defensive option is Ligue 1 player, Guillermo Maripan, but if Mourinho desperately wants the AS Monaco player, he has some competition to sign him as fellow Premier League side Newcastle United are also monitoring him.
It will be interesting to see what unfolds at Spurs in the coming weeks.
