Alasdair Gold has revealed that Tottenham Hotspur are still looking for opportunities in three positions this summer – attacking midfielder, striker, and centre-back.
Instead of their modus operandi of waiting until late in the transfer window to make key additions, Spurs have been proactive this summer and have addressed most of the squad’s weaknesses well before the start of the new campaign.
The North London club have already brought six players through the door in the form of Ivan Perisic, Fraser Forster, Yves Bissouma, Richarlison, Clement Lenglet and Djed Spence.
The Evening Standard’s Dan Kilpatrick reported last week that Tottenham are now focused on moving on their deadwood and added that the club are still on the lookout for a creative midfielder and a centre-back.
Meanwhile, Fabrizio Romano has told GiveMeSport that Fabio Paratici continues to be on the lookout for market ‘opportunities’.
Gold has now said something similar, stating that Tottenham could look to bring in a striker, an attacking midfielder and a centre-back, depending on player sales.
The journalist said on a Q&A on Football.London: “Spurs’ focus right now is on getting players out of the door but they are still looking at opportunities for attacking midfielders and strikers, as well as another centre-back depending on who departs.

I think part of the reason why Conte has experimented with Moura at right-wing-back is because of the possibility that Spurs could bring another forward through the door (potentially Zaniolo).
One would also expect the club to sign another centre-back if Tanganga and Rodon depart but it is unclear at this point who our target is likely to be, particularly with Bremer joining Juventus.
