With Tottenham Hotspur confirming the captures of both Sergio Reguilon and Gareth Bale on Saturday evening the club’s transfer business, this window is already impressive.
Bale’s return, in particular, will give Jose Mourinho plenty of mouth-watering options in attack but according to reports, the North Londoners are not done strengthening their frontline just yet.
A report by The Athletic reveals that Mourinho was reassured by Daniel Levy that the club will sign a striker before the transfer window shuts, irrespective of Bale’s arrival.
The report explains that re-signing Bale was a deal that was very much pushed by Levy and was not a priority for Mourinho.
However, the Spurs boss was reportedly in favour of the deal after he was promised another striker as he had always admired the Welshman as a player.
It is also suggested that Levy’s close relationship with Bale’s agent Jonathan Barnett helped smoothen the path for an agreement to be reached quickly.
Spurs Web Opinion
While I still expect us to sign another striker, I do not believe there is any chance of us spending more than around £20m on a forward, after the outlay on Bale and Reguilon. So fans who are dreaming of Belotti, Ings or Jimenez are likely to be disappointed. Jose talked about the squad being like a puzzle and I believe with the pace we now have upfront, we are more likely to go for a traditional lanky target man.
