Former Spurs star insists club ‘have been left behind’ due to transfer failures

Former Tottenham midfielder, Michael Brown, has claimed that Tottenham have been left behind by some of their rivals due to their inability to compete in the transfer market.

Spurs famously failed to sign a single player in the summer of 2018, as well as January 2019, but still managed to reach the Champions League Final.

The club have invested considerably into the squad over the last two transfer windows with the likes of Tanguy Ndombele, Giovani Lo Celso, Jack Clarke, Ryan Sessegnon, Steven Bergwijn and Gedson Fernandes (loan) all being added to the squad.

However, Brown feels that the rebuild is just getting started that that Jose Mourinho will want to put his own imprint on the side when the transfer market reopens in the summer.

He insisted that the Spurs boss will be in talks with Daniel Levy over the club’s summer targets.

Speaking to Football Insider, Brown said: “Jose Mourinho is his own man, he will decide on what he wants.

“He will be speaking to Daniel Levy, I’m sure, to try and improve the squad. You can see that they’ve been left behind.

“The last period of time, recruitment could have gone a little better because the strength in depth is not there at the moment.”

Most fans admitted to the fact that the squad was in need of a major rebuild under Mauricio Pochettino and that hasn’t changed simply because we have Mourinho at the helm. I expect Daniel Levy to back Jose in the summer but it remains to be seen how the coronavirus shutdown will affect the club’s transfer ambitions.
