Journalist Pete O’Rourke has claimed Tottenham could continue their transfer business by adding two more players this summer. 

Spurs have made sure to get the majority of their moves completed early in the window having already added five players to Antonio Conte’s squad. 

Ivan Perisic and Fraser Forster were the first arrivals on respective free transfers, before Yves Bissouma and Richarlison were brought in as the first monetary acquisitions. 

Spurs then moved for centre-back Clement Lenglet who has joined on a season-long loan from Barcelona and are close to making their sixth signing in Middlesbrough’s Djed Spence, with the 21-year-old set to arrive for a £12.5 million fee rising to £20 million (Sky Sports).  

They have also been linked with Lyon midfielder Lucas Paqueta with the 24-year-old Brazilian seen as a more creative option (Football.London), although O’Rourke does not believe he is currently a target of priority.

However, the journalist hinted Spurs could still make another two signings this summer with another forward and centre-back likely to be at the top of their wish-list. 

O’Rourke told GiveMeSport: “They have had an interest in Paqueta in the past, but I don’t think he’ll be a priority now. I think they are looking at another attacker and possibly a centre-back if players do leave.”

Spurs Web Opinion 

Tottenham getting the majority of their business done early has been very refreshing as it allows the players to settle in easier and fully absorb Conte’s ideas, but they still need a few more pieces. 

There is plenty of time remaining to add those players and the club will likely have some targets already in mind in terms of filling in those positions, it will just be a case of launching a strong pursuit.
