Speaking in a YouTube video (uploaded 5pm, September 28, 25:15), reliable Spurs correspondent Alasdair Gold has questioned whether January star signing Steven Bergwijn fits the mould in north London – going on to state that the attacker was ‘not the player [Jose] Mourinho wanted‘ at the start of this year.
As the summer transfer window deadline looms, with all business beyond the UK having to be concluded by October 5, Tottenham are debatably running out of time to secure their desired two additional signings before the congested 2020/2021 Premier League season continues.
Will Spurs make two more signings before October 5?
Yes, needs to be done
Previous reports indicate that Daniel Levy and co wish to acquire a new defender and back-up striker to Harry Kane before calling time on what has been the most noteworthy few transfer dealings at Spurs in recent memory.
Sergio Reguilon joined in a £25 million deal nearly a fortnight ago, alongside a headline-grabbing loan swoop for club icon Gareth Bale – with Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Joe Hart and Matt Doherty putting pen-to-paper beforehand.
Now, to cap off some excellent moves by the club, Tottenham want two more signings – but journalist Gold has now questioned the acquisition of Bergwijn back in January given he wasn’t Mourinho’s first choice or debatably fits the mould, even if he did brand him ‘fantastic‘ last season.
Using the Dutchman as a potential warning to future business, stating the importance of signing a player the Portuguese does in fact want, Gold believes that a could-be reason for the lack of Bergwijn match action may be that Mourinho doesn’t see him as a crucial enough asset for his system.
Imploring the club to avoid a similar error before deadline day, Gold could be right in claiming that Spurs must be cautious and clear in their next transfer approaches.
