A major Tottenham Hotspur transfer claim has emerged this week regarding what they want to do in July…
Alasdair Gold has provided an update on the club’s plans for the upcoming window and the positions that they want to strengthen in ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.
He wrote in his Football London Q&A: “There’s been a lot of talk about Tottenham having to spend this summer in order to convince both Conte and Kane of their ambition, while Fabio Paratici also likes a free transfer. I think Spurs will be pretty busy this summer.
“They need to be. In terms of positions, at this point they want a new striker, a right wing-back, a left-sided centre-back and another creative player. Anyone who leaves will have to be replaced as well. Like I say, it has to be a busy one.”
Spurs fans will surely be excited by this news as it suggests that they have plenty to look forward to in the upcoming window.
Gold has claimed that they want at least four new additions and that does not take into account any players they will sell and replace over the course of the summer. This means that the supporters can expect to see plenty of outgoings and incomings, which should delight them as it brings with it the prospect of Antonio Conte’s squad being bolstered with additional quality.
The fans will be particularly excited by this claim after the impressive work by Fabio Paratici in the January transfer window. He brought in Dejan Kulusevski and Rodrigo Bentancur from Juventus and both players have caught the eye since making their respective moves.
Kulusevski has produced two goals and one assist in five Premier League games whilst averaging an impressive SofaScore rating of 7.20. All three of his direct goal contributions have come in his last three appearances as he is showing that he has the quality to make an impact at this level.
Bentancur, meanwhile, has been a solid presence in the middle of the park. He has averaged a SofaScore rating of 6.88 in his four league outings, making 2.8 tackles and interceptions per game and completing 84% of his attempted passes.
If Tottenham can replicate these successes four or five more times in the summer window then it could be a terrific few months for the fans to enjoy. This is why they will be delighted by the prospect of Paratici looking to add four or more new signings to the squad.
