Arsenal legend Ian Wright believes Tottenham Hotspur are finally moving in the right direction as they look to bring long-awaited success to the club.
Tottenham have been very active in the summer transfer window so far, having already facilitated seven signings, bringing in players to improve the squad’s quality and depth.
Fraser Forster, Ivan Perisic, Yves Bissouma, Richarlison, Clement Lenglet, Djed Spence and Destiny Udogie (Fabrizio Romano) have all made the switch to Spurs this summer.
The owners have put in considerable effort to back Antonio Conte by investing £150million into the club in this window (The Guardian), something that has not been synonymous with ENIC in the past.
The North Londoners won their opening Premier League game of this campaign against Southampton with an impressive 4-1 scoreline.
The Saints troubled the Lilywhites last season, earning four points from six, but Conte’s team overcame the challenge this time around, without even needing the help of their new additions.
Wright believes that Tottenham are working in the shadows and are building a strong squad to mount a challenge in the future.
The former Arsenal man also pointed out how Spurs have changed their ways to back Conte by bringing in quality reinforcements that could prove to be crucial moving forward.
Wright said on his Wrighty’s House podcast: “Wow, I did the Spurs game. There is an assured silence from Spurs, at the moment, which is quite frightening.
“Simply because they don’t normally work like this. Conte is in charge. You can see that. Daniel Levy has given him, what, £150 million?!
“He’s said ‘okay, just go and do your stuff’. The signings. Richarlison, he could play instead of Harry Kane and Son. Or with them both. Great signing.
“Then Kulusevski is playing well. Every time he gets the ball, he does something assertive and it’s quality. Everything that he does, he is looking to hurt the team.”
Spurs Web Opinion:
Spurs can be considered as the dark horses of this season as they have all the capabilities to finally end their trophy drought. While there are some areas where improvements can still be made, the overall squad is solid enough to make considerable steps forward.
Thinking about winning the Premier League or the Champions League is quite far-fetched, but Spurs now have genuine chances of getting their hands on domestic cup titles. That should be the objective for this campaign, alongside a top-four finish, to ensure that Spurs have something to build on for the future.
