Former Chelsea striker, Tony Cascarino feels that Tottenham Hotspur have not done enough to strengthen their squad in the transfer window so far.

Spurs have already announced the captures of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Joe Hart, and Matt Doherty, with reports indicating that the club still want to sign a striker and a centre-back before the transfer window shuts (Football.London).

Tottenham’s transfer business this summer pales in comparison to the business done by some of their rivals, with Chelsea, in particular, making some real waves with their captures of Timo Werner, Kai Havertz, Hakim Ziyech, and Thiago Silva.

Meanwhile, Manchester United have completed the signing of highly-rated Dutch midfielder Donny van de Beek, with reports indicating that the Red Devils are still eyeing other high-profile targets like Jadon Sancho (Manchester Evening News).

Cascarino believes that Jose Mourinho’s side also need to make some major signings ahead of the new campaign if they are going to compete at the top.

The pundit told talkSPORT (06/09/20 at 8:55 am): “Spurs, I don’t really see too much in there. I don’t see signings where I thought ‘Yeh, that’s a good signing for Spurs’. I think [Doherty’s] not bad. He can do a really good job in different systems.

“But I don’t see major signings there. Bergwijn came to the club in January and I thought he looked lively when he first got there, but by the end of the season, he was in and out of the season slightly. Lucas Moura is sort of found in that position far too often.

“It’s a bit of a strange one. Ndombele just the signing, it’s a bit like Bakayoko, who signed for Chelsea, it just hasn’t worked so far.”

Spurs Web Opinion

Both Hojbjerg and Doherty are solid but unspectacular additions and there is no doubt that both players will improve our side. Irrespective of the signings that our rivals make, if we can bring in a decent back up to Kane and a young, upcoming central defender, then there is no reason why we cannot push for a third-place finish next season.
