Speaking to the Last Word on Spurs podcast, Sky Sports journalist Fabrizio Romano has confirmed that Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy and co want three more signings ahead of the 2020/2021 Premier League campaign – specifically a centre-back, winger and striker.
Romano, who appeared as a guest on the popular podcast mid-week, shed light on some of Spurs’ potential next moves after already landing a trio of defensive names.
Indeed, Tottenham have secured the acquisitions of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Matt Doherty and Joe Hart for a net spend figure of around £16.4 million – but reliable transfer guru Romano has confirmed that the club are not done there.
Which position should be a priority for Spurs?
Famous for his ‘here we go‘ Twitter announcements concerning new arrivals at Europe’s top clubs, Romano has been touted as one of the most reliable journalists of the window – and he has now claimed that Spurs want to strengthen at centre-back, on the flank and going forward ahead of the new Premier League season.
Spurs have been linked with a plethora of forwards as they search for a reliable back-up to Harry Kane, with Bournemouth duo Callum Wilson and Josh King coming up repeatedly over the last fortnight (football.london).
Meanwhile, correspondent Alasdair Gold has outlined other links both past and present – including the likes of Chris Wood, Arkadiusz Milik, Olivier Giroud, Ollie Watkins and Darwin Nunez.
While the forward area seems key, Tottenham also want to acquire a centre-back and winger – with Marash Kumbulla most recently linked to taking up a role at Spurs in the former position (Corriere di Verona).
On the wing, Romano claims that Bayer Leverkusen star Leon Bailey attracts manager Jose Mourinho’s admiration – but the club would have to pay over the odds.
Judging by the Italian’s comments to the LWOS show, this could shape up to be an entertaining end to the window.
