As an eccentric spurs supporter I am always happy when we are signing young players to develop our future and this looks to have happened with the recent reports regarding Tin Jedvaj and Alen Halilovic (above) from Dinamo Zagreb for a combined fee of £15 million.
I am especially excited when doing research on these players and having typed in Alen Halilovic’s name on YouTube, the first video to appear was “Alen Halilovic – the New Messi”.
Now here come my concerns. How much money have we got? Is the money spent wisely and will we still have enough for our main priority – a striker.
Everybody knows Levy is a shrewd businessman and I am often (like many spurs supporters) frustrated with how our usually last-day deals become our only part of our spending.
This appears to have changed with the recent signings of Paulinho and the two Croatian youngsters (unconfirmed by Tottenham Hotspur). I for one, have grown to love AVB – his passion, his desire and his project? In my eyes these signings have all come from him and his desire and belief for our club. But… Is £15 million on two youngsters – who will be loaned back to Dinamo a positive buy? We still require a striker and with a reportedly 32 million already spent how much do we have for that finisher?
I am only of the concern that we require Champions League football next season and top 4 is a must. I think another 2-3 years of missing out on the best competition in football and “the project” will be over. £15 million could have got us, or gone towards a clinical striker and it being the difference between 4th and 5th place. In my eyes the future is now!
I hope that Levy is providing a bottomless pit of money and all my concerns are erased come the start of next season.
In AVB we trust. In Tottenham we trust.
Thanks for reading.
