Alasdair Gold has dropped an update on the remaining transfer business of Tottenham Hotspur this summer.
In a recent post on Twitter, the football.london journalist revealed that, despite Fabio Paratici confirming his fifth signing of the summer transfer window in the shape of Clement Lenglet, the sporting director is not done with incoming transfers just yet.
In his tweet, Gold said: “Five down. Still more to come and just under two months left. What a remarkable transfer window so far at Spurs.”
Considering the fact that Paratici has already sealed a number of much-needed additions to Antonio Conte’s first-team squad this summer, Gold’s claim that the Italian’s business in the market is yet to conclude is sure to have left the Tottenham Hotspur faithful buzzing.
Indeed, with Spurs having already welcomed the likes of left wing-back Ivan Perisic, backup goalkeeper Fraser Forster, central midfielder Yves Bissouma, forward Richarlison and left-sided centre-back Lenglet to Hotspur Way over the course of last month – spending a little over £78m in the process – it would very much appear as if Conte already has a much stronger squad at his disposal ahead of the 2022/23 campaign than he did throughout 2021/22.
However, with Tottenham also reported to be in negotiations with Middlesbrough regarding a £20m deal for 21-year-old right-back Djed Spence, as well as potentially lining up a £45m move for Villarreal centre-back Pau Torres, Spurs’ window looks as if it boasts the potential to transform from being extremely impressive to – quite frankly – unbelievable in the coming weeks.
Either way, one thing is for sure – Daniel Levy and Paratici are doing everything they can to keep Conte happy heading into the upcoming campaign, with Tottenham’s business so far very much leading to the conclusion that the 52-year-old manager and his side will be serious contenders for trophies both domestically and in Europe next season.
