An article published by The Express has named four players who Tottenham Hotspur could still sign before the transfer window closes.
Chairman Daniel Levy’s comments about further investment into Mauricio Pochettino’s squad were certainly positive when he spoke at the AIA sponsorship extension announcement in Shanghai yesterday.
Levy said: “Our view is wherever we can we will improve the team. We have embarked in recent years on two very major capital projects, which I think in the long term will be of great benefit to the club. We will continue wherever we can to improve the team.” (The Telegraph)
The Express article mentions Giovani Lo Celso and Ryan Sessegnon, who have been linked with Tottenham heavily throughout the transfer window (Standard).
Spurs are also linked with a big-money move for ex-player Gareth Bale, however his massive £600k a week wages make this deal unlikely. Levy isn’t likely to break the strict wage structure he has imposed at Spurs for a player who appears to be past his best.
Undoubtedly, the biggest shock of the report is the link to Ex-West Ham striker Andy Carroll, who was released on a free at the end of the season. The article claims that signing Carroll would make sense for Spurs as Llorente’s contract has just expired. While Pochettino does like a target man on the bench, this would be a strange one.

The accuracy of this report is debatable considering we have been linked with Lo Celso and Sessegnon for weeks and the other two links seem faint at best. A move to bring Bale back would be popular with the fans but probably isn’t feasible with our wage restrictions. Bringing in Andy Carroll would be an awful decision and it would make much more sense to sign Llorente on a new one year deal. He is less injury-prone and more experienced than Carroll.
