Five signings to complete Tottenham’s summer transfer business

There’s a big season on the horizon at White Hart Lane. Tottenham go into 2016/17 looking to build on their third place finish from last season as well as challenging in the Champions League.

The young side impressed last year under Mauricio Pochettino with their togetherness and work rate as well as how well they both attacked and defended. All this combined led the men from north London to push Leicester City all the way for title before crumbling in the very last stages of the season.

This experience though, if used correctly, will benefit the squad. Spurs will now know what it takes to win the Premier League title and their players will go into every game knowing they are good enough to grab a win, even in Europe. The last time Spurs played in the Champions League a certain Gareth Bale was on their books and whilst they do not have someone like the Welshman they still have very good players.

It could be a season to remember for the club if they get it right and we at Football Fan Cast think that if this FIVE join the club, Spurs will be ready to compete on all fronts…

Danny Rose did well at left back last season as he highlighted his potential and willingness to work on his game under Mauricio Pochettino.

There is a feeling though, that if Spurs want to compete in Europe too, they need another good left back. Ben Davies is currently the back up on the left side for Spurs but they should be aiming to sign someone like Hector. He was eye-catching at EURO 2016 for Germany and would be a great signing.

Ante Coric


Mauricio Pochettino clearly trusts in youth. The Argentine has given the likes of Dele Alli and Eric Dier big chances for Spurs and they have duly repaid him while Harry Kane’s rise is well documented.

‘Poch’ then, must be looking at other youngsters he can improve and the Croatian Coric fits the bill. He’s a bright young attacking midfielder and would excel with Spurs’ playing style.

Juan Cuadrado

Cuadrado joined Chelsea but within a matter of weeks it was clear Jose Mourinho didn’t really fancy him.

The South American was promptly shipped out on loan to Juventus where he showed what he can do as the Turin club won Serie A last season and so now it remains to be seen what his future holds.

If Spurs fans can get over his Chelsea ties he could be a key player for them offering an extra player that can play out wide.

Moussa Sissoko

Moussa Sissoko on form is real force to be reckoned with.

In the EURO 2016 final for France he looked unplayable at times with his marauding runs forward and although his country transpired to lose the tournament showpiece, his performance didn’t go unnoticed.

The Newcastle man would be a real boost to the Spurs squad as they look for stronger options from deep in central midfield than they currently have behind Mousa Dembele and Eric Dier.

Alexandre Lacazette


Lacazette would arguably the marquee signing of Spurs’ Summer and would really make a statement.

The men from White Hart Lane need to target players of the Lyon forward’s calibre to really leave their mark in Europe and the potential striking options they’d have with Lacazette, Harry Kane and Vincent Janssen would give Mauricio Pochettino plenty of opportunity to win games.
