Despite the late and recent speculation surrounding moves for Paulo Dybala and Philippe Coutinho (Sky Sports), Tottenham have still only made two signings this transfer window.
While Tanguy Ndombele became Tottenham’s record-breaking signing, for around £65 million, Jack Clarke was bought from Leeds only to be loaned straight back to the Championship side (TalkSport).
Former Tottenham striker, Gary Lineker, believes that Spurs’ current lack of investment could cause them to lose Harry Kane in the future.
Speaking to TalkSPORT, Lineker said: “I can understand the frustration of the manager,
“He’s done such an unbelievable job.
“I’ve been saying this about Tottenham for four years now, but this is a seminal moment for them and they’ve got to decide what they are.
“Are they just going to be a smaller club that punches above its weight occasionally? If they continue to do that, they will lose someone even as loyal as Harry Kane – because he’ll want to win things.
“You can see Pochettino’s irritations there. They’re just two or three players short of being a team who could challenge Manchester City or Liverpool, and they’ve been that for a number of years.
“They’ve got the new stadium and that’s brilliant, but you need a team to fill it. They’ve brought one or two in, but it’s probably not quite as much as they need.
“There’s a few days left and Levy is notorious for leaving it late, so we’ll see.”
Tottenham will be hopeful of completing deals for both Giovanni Lo Celso and Ryan Sessegnon before the window shuts at 5om tonight.
There’s also a chance to complete a move for Juventus’ Paulo Dybala with the two clubs having agreed a fee for a reported £64.4 million. It is rumoured that Spurs are currently working on agreeing personal terms with the player (Sky Sports).
Spurs Web Opinion
We are certainly set for an exciting deadline day. Lineker’s comments are food for thought though if we fail to complete deals for Lo Celso, Sessegnon or Dybala. It would be a worry for us to have only made one signing who can play this season and a failure to secure other targets would highlight a lack of ambition from the club.
