Tottenham Hotspur were active in the summer transfer window for the first time in over 500 days when they recruited Jack Clarke, Tanguy Ndombele, Ryan Sessegnon and Giovani Lo Celso.
Despite the new additions coming in to bolster a squad which made it to the Champions League final, Spurs have failed to progress in the manner which Liverpool did when they came up short in the European showpiece a year earlier.
Most Spurs fans will certainly be hoping that Daniel Levy allows his manager to spend again in the January transfer window after what has been a diabolical start to the new campaign.
One area where Tottenham are appearing to struggle is in the final third of the pitch where a lack of natural width and creativity is clear to see given the club’s current predicament.
Spurs were linked with a £50million move for former Manchester United wide man Memphis Depay after The Mirror claimed that the North London club had sent scouts to watch the Dutchman play on more than one occasion.
His national team boss, Ronald Koeman has suggested it would be better for the player to play for a bigger club than Lyon which will help raise his game and further benefit Holland.
Koeman said (Goal): “If he plays at a bigger club, that will be better for us,”
“You always hope that every player plays for the biggest clubs that actually compete for the big prizes.
“I think he’s the kind of player that should play at a club like that. If that’s in the Premier League or at any other big club, that would be great for him.”
