In what has been a season filled with ups and downs and tainted with inconsistency, many Spurs fans have started to think ahead towards potential incomings in the summer transfer window.

Many are eager to see how Conte’s first ‘big’ window will pan out with the help of transfer wizard Fabio Paratici and the ‘backing’ of Daniel Levy.

Taking these factors into account here are 4 players I think Tottenham should look to sign this summer:

Stefan De Vrij

For me, this one is a no-brainer given the Dutchman’s history with Antonio Conte at Inter and the fact he is experienced and has one silverware in the past. This kind of mentality, blended with experience is sure to help Tottenham’s issues at the back.

Although many have been impressed with the performances of Eric Dier and Cristian Romero, I believe an upgrade is needed on the left side of the back three, which would lead to Ben Davies losing his place in the starting XI but certainly not in the squad.

Tariq Lamptey

In my opinion, the acquisition of a new right wing-back is pivotal in the team’s performance going forward. Emerson Royal has been a bit hit and miss in his first season at N17, with the young Brazilian not quite up to the standard Spurs fans had hoped yet.

Meanwhile, Matt Doherty has looked like a different player in recent weeks, putting in good performances against the likes of Leeds, Everton and West Ham.

I believe the introduction of Tariq Lamptey would provide the team with much-needed consistency in a position that hasn’t really been replaced since Kyle Walker’s departure in 2017.

Carlos Soler

Spurs are crying out for another creative midfielder to provide competition for Rodrigo Bentancur next season, and I believe Soler is the right man for the job.

Although I would still start the Uruguayan after some brilliant performances so far, Soler would prove to be a smart signing for Conte’s Spurs and would certainly benefit the team.

The Spaniard has provided 9 goals and 5 assists for Valencia in 23 games (TransferMarkt) and with the potential prospect of UCL football, it may be enough to prise Soler away from Spain and make a lucrative switch to N17.

Gianluca Scamacca

It wouldn’t be a Spurs transfer window if we didn’t mention a striker, would it? For years Tottenham have tried to provide backup for Harry Kane with the likes of Vincent Janssen, Fernando Llorente and Carlos Vinicius just a few to be mentioned.

The Italian, Gianluca Scamacca, has looked brilliant for Sassuolo in Serie A this season, netting 13 goals with his side sitting 9th in Italy’s top division (TransferMarkt). Furthermore, the fact he is only 23 suggest there is plenty of room to improve, and with the guidance of Harry Kane, Scamacca is only going to get better.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Agree with all bar Tariq Lamptey. I think he would be a huge gamble. Costing around £50m with his recent injury record. He is very quick but also small and if his hamstring injuries reoccur this could be a mistake. I don’t think he has done enough for Brighton yet to justify such a fee. I think the club really messed up in letting Walker Peters go and not giving him sufficient opportunities. Otherwise probably smart choices and we do need to upgrade on Ben Davies. Who is excellent cover, but would not get in another top 6 side as a starter.
