Opinion: Why Tottenham fans will see a flurry of signings in the next two weeks

It has been a rather understated transfer window for Tottenham so far this summer, having introduced the early signing of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and the free transfer of Joe Hart.

However, I believe that Tottenham fans will see a flurry of signings in the next two weeks as we gear up towards the start of the new Premier League season in September.

Daniel Levy and Spurs often prefer to get their sales done first before they look to spend the subsequent cash. So far this summer, we have seen Kyle Walker-Peters leave and Hojbjerg come in, supporting this hypothesis. Joe Hart, of course, cost nothing.

Not only this, but Levy historically likes to sign his most-needed player early in order to integrate them into the squad (Hojbjerg) before waiting for bargains later in the window.

We saw this last season with the early acquisition of Ndombele, followed by Sessegnon and Lo Celso on deadline day.

I still believe that Spurs will be looking to sign a right-back, a striker, and another attacking option, whether that be a playmaker or winger this summer.

However, I think the club will sanction the sales of Serge Aurier, Danny Rose, and one more before they finalise the incoming deals.

Once the sales are done, let the signings commence!

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Personally speaking I feel that this last minute transfer strategy is woefully hit and miss. Tottenham seem to forever be linked with numerous specified targets, yet so many simply drift past aimlessly and with no apparent depth of plan. Levy seems more concerned with how to wheel and deal a bargain to the sacrifice of actual need and requirement, and as a result Spurs are suffering as a team, never quite managing to match hopeful aspirations with genuine ambition and success.
