‘Inexcusable from Levy’ – Some Spurs demand more transfer activity in key position

With just a matter of days to go ahead of Tottenham’s Premier League opener against Everton, some fans are fuming that the club have not managed to sign a back up to Harry Kane before the start of the campaign.

While Spurs have moved uncharacteristically early this transfer window to complete some smart deals, there are still some gaping holes in the squad that need to be filled.

Football.London’s Alasdair Gold has revealed that the club are still in the market for a striker and a centre-back this transfer window.

A suitable centre forward to serve as Kane’s back up is something the Lilywhites have lacked since Fernando Llorente left last summer.

This also cost Jose Mourinho’s side dearly last season with the England captain being sidelined for a few months with a hamstring injury which was compounded with Heung-min Son’s arm fracture.

The 27-year-old looked sharp following the restart, with the prolonged rest seeming to have done him a lot of good.

However, given the near-unprecedented level of fixture congestion that Spurs face at the start of the season, some fans are frustrated that Daniel Levy has not managed to bring in another striker to take some workload off Kane.

I can see why some fans are running out of patience, especially when we see strikers we have been linked to, like Callum Wilson and Ollie Watkins, being snapped up by lower half teams. However, the speculation linking us with a move for Arkadiusz Milik has reemerged again and I would not be surprised if the Pole was Jose’s preferred option.

We saw through the Amazon documentary how much having Kane unavailable affected the team and the coaching staff. However, another insightful part of the documentary was Levy’s remark about most of the activity in the window happening in the final couple of weeks. So, fans should not be panicking just yet.
