Speaking in a Football.London Q&A, reliable Tottenham correspondent Alasdair Gold has issued a ‘behind the scenes‘ claim that ‘everyone is buzzing‘ over the club’s business so far – but the journalist also dropped a subtle transfer hint, stating ‘almost all‘ targets have been acquired.
After thrashing Premier League giants Man United 6-1 at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon, Spurs continue to be in dreamland following a very impressive transfer window thus far heading into deadline day.
Who will Spurs sign on deadline day?
A surprise name
Six summer signings have come through the door in what has been a busy few months for chairman Daniel Levy, snapping up Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Joe Hart, Matt Doherty, Sergio Reguilon, Carlos Vinicius and the sensational return of club icon Gareth Bale.
However, while Gold states that there is a buzz behind the scenes at Tottenham surrounding their done deals, he also claims that ‘almost’ all areas have been reinforced – potentially harking back to Spurs’ repeated links with a centre-back.
Indeed, the club are reportedly in the market for a new defender as their seventh summer signing, with the only question being “who could walk through the door next?”
Manager Jose Mourinho also dropped his own subtle transfer hint in a press conference after the famous win at United, stating that he has an incredible squad in the ‘attacking areas‘.
Whether or not Tottenham do end up bringing in a new defensive face remains to be seen, but it would certainly elevate Lilywhites to an even higher level of euphoria if they can.
It’s been a memorable last few weeks for the club, but landing either Skriniar or Rudiger before the 11pm deadline day cut off time could make things just that little bit sweeter.
